Micro Focus OpenView [EOL] Review

It consumes too many servers for installation but the ​Network Node Manager is good.

Valuable Features:

Network Node Manager is good and so is Operations Manager, although they are a bit archaic now.  Also valuable are the RTSM Agent, agent-less monitoring, SPI, and integrations.

Room for Improvement:

Lots. Consumes too many servers for installation. Why separate products for agent/agentless, licensing simplification.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for eight years.

Deployment Issues:

BSM /OMi is not stable.

Stability Issues:

Yes. BSM/OMi is not stable. It takes time for event dashboard to refresh.

Scalability Issues:

It needs a lot of CPU/memory anyway.

Implementation Team:

We are MSP.

Other Solutions Considered:

We also looked at BMC.

Other Advice:

Too many products, so be careful what you want to implement.

**Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We have a Strategic Partnership with HP.
