Five reasons why it’s now time to upgrade.
Thanks to valuable feedback from customers (a huge thank you to all who contributed!), the latest release of Statseeker (November 2019) delivers outstanding new features and functionality that are well worth upgrading for.
Here are our five top reasons for switching up to the latest and greatest version of Statseeker.
Reason 1: Customizable dashboards and a greatly enhanced interface.
Statseeker now offers a richer and more intuitive user experience, including built-in Grafana capabilities to provide robust dashboarding functionality, including the ability to create your own dashboards. Even the default versions are based on customer feedback.
You can now quickly build your own screens to monitor, drill down and troubleshoot using the visibility and measures that are most relevant to getting to the root cause of issues for your particular network.
Reason 2: Enhanced syslog reporting.
You can now add additional fields to the syslog message – a great way to turn your Statseeker alerts into valuable information for cybersecurity systems or enterprise-wide alerting systems (such as AIOps systems). All syslog alerts are now standardized to make it easier for you to integrate them with northbound systems, such as Splunk or SIEMs.
Reason 3: Hardware/asset inventory, Cisco ACI fault collection and other API enhancements.
You can now use Statseeker to access hardware and asset inventory data and consolidate your current device configurations; and if you have Cisco ACI, you can now collect ‘fault’ information through the API, enabling your team to perform root-cause analysis and drill down into the component that is causing the issue.
We’ve also made it easier for you to extract targeted data, for example, by using ‘describe’ to aggregate information retrieved from the API. Please do get in touch with us if you would like tips on how to leverage this new capability.
Reason 4: Geolocation and MAC/IP tracking.
You can now add latitude and longitude coordinates within Statseeker, enabling you to record, plot and display the locations of your network device groups, for example, using a Grafana-based dashboard widget showing a world map. And last, but definitely not least, Statseeker now exposes MAC/IP data, with a ‘last seen’ field that enables you to track devices and assets they connect, move, or detach from your network. It’s not quite Harry Potter’s Marauder’s Map, but you get the idea.
Reason 5: You can try Statseeker free.
If you’ve not yet rushed off to order the new version of Statseeker (and we really think you should), then the next best thing is to opt into our free 45-day trial, and see the difference for yourself.
