Kommentare: We use JDisc for internal IT as well as on-premise customer systems.
Our customers are always delighted when they receive such detailed and up-to-date information about their systems from us!

Vorteile: For us, JDisc is the best tool for capturing HW and SW data across a sheer endless number of IT devices.
It works extremely fast and reliable.
In particular, the customer support is outstanding, you get help at any time, new devices are taken over in no time by the JDisc team into the tool.

Nachteile: The user interface could be a bit fancier ...

Vorteile: JDisc works agentless and scans entire network areas including snmp devices. Thus almost all devices can be found. Filters are a good way to inventory only those devices that are needed. Support adds unknown SNMP devices within weeks when providing snmp-walks. With the available API and reports, JDisc fills a Configuration Management Database very well.

Nachteile: One downside is the (legitimate) need to save passwords in order to use JDisc to its full extent and therefore the need to harden the operating system. Agentless can be a disadvantage if there are many "unwanted" devices in the network.

Kommentare: We have over 200 devices and have several LANs and VPN connections that made our situation far from a small basic network. Jdisc Discovery was able to discover all the the connections.
Because we had so many types of connections, discovery required some special settings to allow it to see all LANs connected from our VPN. Customer support was there and understood our needs.
Once we had reporting setup for our needs, we were able to find out absolutely everything we needed to know about our WAN, VPN and local computers. I am looking forward to trying the other modules. Thanks Jdisc!

Vorteile: VERY easy to install and get basic network information. Looking forward to using the network mapping. Reporting portion is very granular and was able to find everything we were looking for. We don't have a simple network but Customer Support was very personal and best of all very helpful.

Nachteile: We don't have any time constraints and would not consider the small problems we had with setup an emergency by any means. Customer Supports diagnosis and fix of our issue was correct and fixed the first try. That being said customer support I believe was out of Germany so there was a time lag getting replies to the USA. Because they answered as quickly as they could, I am sure if they had 24 hour support, I would not have anything negative to say about this software.

Kommentare: We evaluate JDisc as a network inventory tool for one of our customers. Our experience shows that JDisc provides a lot of information for a wide range of professional devices and operating systems.
It is easy to install and use. Fast scanns and a very high rate of discovered devices speed up the process of data collection.
JDisc provides the data collection for other tools for us and is stable and reliable.
We use it now in our own environment without any problems and it is our first choice for customer request.
I would call the support for this tool as "best practice".

Vorteile: JDisc is very simple and limited to what it should do.
Many manufacturers also try to cover many other areas and then you easily lose the track.
The support of JDisc is very good and fast.

Nachteile: Devices that have been recorded should perhaps be slightly more customizable

Excellent integration, full functionality, requires customization

Kommentare: We use JDisc to collect data on all the devices attached to our customers network. This information is stored in the JDisc database and easily made available to other applications, such as i-doit (part of our ITSM-Stack). Which we use to manage our clients IT infratsructure. JDisc collects information on nearly everthing, including software, installed components and their connections, provided you set it up right.
One feature i´d like to mention is "Agentenlos". Which let you do everything from JDisc without installing anything on the systems themselves.
The only drawback is the time you need to configure it and the mistakes you can make.
The support is great though and will help you get it right. Enhancements and bugfixes are coming very quickly.

Vorteile: I like JDisc Discovery because it gets very detailed information from tons of devices in a very short timeframe.

Nachteile: You need to configure it right.

Kommentare: Using JDisc as the central network inventory tool was the best decision we made. Why? JDisc is very scaleable, fast and stable. Use it for small or very big sites between 50 or 1000 and more devices. JDisc is organized in modules.
We are able to get excatly what we want. There is no need to customize JDisc for retrieving information, we do not need at a certail stage. But we have the posibility to.
The features provided by JDisc allows us to fullfill a lot of requests, which are beyond the functionality of a network inventory tool. JDisc results can easily be be used by all providors of our customers. So it is an independent data collection. JDisc provides an interface to integrate function and resultis in other software products. At least .. fair pricing and a flexible, well skilled and fast support team made it easy to run JDisc.

Kommentare: Nice Software, nice People, nice co-customers. High volumes of items get a little expensive, so think before discover!

Vorteile: It crawls EVERYthing. You get a lot of item-info, but you´ll have to manage that, best before you start discovery - and in line with a CMDB-CMP!

Kommentare: Ever since JDisc was the main discovery solution that we use for the engagements, our life got much easier. Their development team worked close to us in order to enhance the tool to cover the market needs and the new technology with its requirements. The updates were published in a very short timeframe and for that I truly appreciate their customer service and customer focus. JDisc It's easy to install and it has a powerful engine. The amount of data gathered by the tool is truly vast and the speed of doing that is amazing. There's no such thing as a perfect discovery tool, but JDisc surely is getting closer to that level if they keep up the good work done so far.

Kommentare: We use it to fill our CMDB i-DOIT with SNMP / SSH, so it is a must have :-)

Vorteile: The support is very good and they never refused my ideas or feedback.

Nachteile: That it runs only on Windows and the language / gui feels sometimes a bit old and too "nested".

Kommentare: Very efficient inventory tool which scans lots of different flavours of OSEs.
Requires some experience in configuration and use.
Like a real sportscar, you achieve performance but you need to be a good driver.
You have a real support from the JDisc team.
