CA NetMaster Network Management Review

I can define thresholds that include self-defining baselines.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are SNA and IP monitoring. It has also been very easy to define many thresholds, including self-defining baselines.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see new release migrations made easier. If not all NetMasters are migrated to V12.1, you need one focal point running with Version V12.0 and one running V12.1. A focal point running V12.1 is not able to support subordinates running V12.0.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it for 5 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not encountered any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not encountered any scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would rate technical support as very, very good.

How was the initial setup?

We developed our own setup method for a nearly automatic installation on in excess of 100 logical partitions (LPARs).
