Poor technical support from Pulseway?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

We are long-term Pulseway customers but lately the Pulseway client has developed a bug and continuously uses up to 20%+ CPU utilisation.

We logged this with Pulseway on the 4th of July this year but they have been completely ignoring the ticket. I regularly reply to the email thread for an update (at least once a week) but I am ignored. The only time I had a meaningful response was when I threatened to cancel our subscription. This was short lived and now I am back to being ignored with no status updates on my ticket.

We like the product but we have a handful of servers with this bug and I am simply installing other monitoring products on them. Today I have sent my usual email to Pulseway support asking for a status update on my ticket but I'm certain I'll get nothing back...

The next step will then be to install a better monitoring product like Infradog and to write the same post on Spiceworks so people know that Pulseway doesn't offer good technical support.

Hi Ian,

I'm sorry to hear that your ticket is not yet resolved. I've familiarized myself with your case and it appears that it is currently with the development team. Unfortunately the issue is more complex and there's no immediate solution on it. My colleagues from the support team can only provide status updates if they get any from the development team and in this case there hasn't been any progress made.

Rest assured that we are looking into the issue.

Hi Paul,

I understand that this may be a complex issue but I need it resolved. A member of your support team contacted me just after I posted this and said they would contact the developers for an update.

I haven't heard anything back yet so I can only assume that no progress has been made or the support team hasn't contacted the developers. 

I can't continue on with this situation I need a timescale for the fix at the very least, It seems like the problem has just been shelved.

Thank you,

Hi Ian,

Rest assured that this issue is not shelved but there's been no progress made on it simply because it's scheduled to be fixed in the next Windows agent maintenance release (it's on the top of the priority todo list). I'll post an update as soon as I have a beta build so you can install it on your affected system.

Hi Paul,

Any news on this?? We recently built a server 2016 Citrix VDA and this problem was present on it.

As soon as we connected the pulseway client to our pulseway account it relentlessly uses 15-20% CPU

Please advise,

Did anyone ever get a response on this? I have this issue all over the place and it seems to be more noticeable when your logged in through pulseway rdp.

Hi Josh,

Just to confirm it's the same issue, does the CPU usage increase for the PCMonitorSrv.exe or for pcmontask.exe?

Hi Josh,

I haven't had a response from Pulseway in regards to this issue for quite a few months now.

I don't think they plan to resolve this problem.

Hope this helps,

IT never sleeps :lol:. I've found your inquiry and asked around what's the hold up. Unless everyone took your advice and went for pints someone should reach out to you soon.

      Does anyone have an update script for making and removing snapshots in VMware?
      I would like to use it together with Windows update scripts to search and install updates.

      So I am really enjoying Pulseway, the systems are mostly well designed and work really well. They are simple and have no huge data entry overhead like other systems (Autotask).

      However, there are some improvements to be made in consistency through out the application. For example some text boxes for paragraphs of text allow you to tab into and out of them. Others don't some places where I click on a ticket opens the ticket in another separate popup window, others a new tab.
      The choices in made in some designs are really weird. For example, most save buttons are at the bottom of a dialog, a couple are at the top. That kind of change of process creates a headache when you just typed a novel on what was done and you miss the button and find the dialog is gone, and your masterpiece with it.
      I don't have the time right now to show/point out each of these that I have found, but I will be adding each of them here as soon as I can. I would like to think that the Dev's can find these faults themselves, but then you would think that if they knew those problems should have been taken care of already.

      I've seen some old posts about this and solutions in older versions that have since been removed. However, I don't see the settings or options in this iteration as of today.
      We monitor some generic services, ie Apache, and other proprietary services that are critical to our program running. At times they hiccup or run into an issue where they fail to start or stop. At this point we would want Pulseway to not only send a notification but also attempt to restart the service(s).
      Any way to accomplish this or any roadmap on getting that feature rolled in?

      I am curious to know why 3rd party patch mgmt. is an additional paid feature. Before I would get notified for like Adobe Reader needed an update, know I have to pay additional to get this notification?
      What else within the features we already get will be removed to a "module" that we have to pay additional for? I only oversee around 60 endpoints, so I am not a big player, but there are issues now that are making me look and trial other RMM solutions. 
      Today I logged into my dash-panel as I do everyday M-F only to be greeted with 53 notifications for critical updates for Windows. Going into to the systems one by one, I quickly realized that something is not right. When viewing the systems, it clearly stated there were updates for Windows needed, but going to the actual systems available updates, I see "No updates found". Is Windows itself considered a 3rd party now?
      While writing this:
      20 May 2019 08:45
      1 critical update is available on computer 'REDACTED' in group 'REDACTED - Workstations'.   Available Updates
      No Updates Found

      Hi Everyone, As everyone knows Windows Updates are not bullet proof and they cause problems periodically with examples being flashing screens on logins for touch screen machines, lost audio abilities, files going missing and so on.  The goal of this Topic is to provide a way for all the members of this forum to report issues with KB's either that they've experienced or that have been reported elsewhere thus allowing all those participating to determine if they want to adjust their global policies to hold off on a KB or make other changes.  Your participation is greatly appreciated and I'm sure other tech's will be thankful for the information provided.
      If you need to look up a KB this link is useful:
      https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx
      Not confirmed, yet, but I believe this will show subsequent KB's related to a errant KB.
