What is most valuable?

It has many great features, but in most of the companies that I have done consulting for, they rarely use them as it requires an advanced level of knowledge of the tool. Event Configuration: A tool in its simplest form creates business logic... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Reduces the false positives, by creating our own business logic with the Event Configuration. Allows us to have a single console/notification point, with the alarms of all the tools that we use for monitoring.

What needs improvement?

It’s like having a Ferrari, without a professional driver. Most companies don’t use all the good features. The out-of-the-box features are just too poor: (Ping, CPU, Disk and Memory, Process, and File Systems). CA Spectrum is an... more»

What is most valuable?

I love the GUI. Almost everything is accessible through the web interface. It is very user-friendly. It is easy to drag and drop resources wherever you want them. NPM also includes additional features that come in handy, such as a web SSH... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I have been able to customize so many things using SolarWinds. I have set up baseline configurations and quickly remediated devices against them. I am using the SYSLOG and trap functions for my non-priority devices. I have NetPath set up to... more»

What needs improvement?

I think there needs to be more granularity in the permission sets in almost all of the SolarWinds products. I want to be able to specify almost everything that a specific user group can do. I am being a little picky with this, as there are... more»

What do you think of Spiceworks?

Valuable Features Network Helpdesk • Improvements to My Organization Tracking common issues has been improved. • Room for Improvement I don't really use anything besides the free stuff so I can't say. It does, however, require help-desk and minor server/firewall config XP experience to set up. • Use of Solution I've used it for two years. • Deployment Issues There have been no issues with the deployment. • Stability Issues There have been no issues with its stability. • Scalability Issues There have been no issues scaling it. • Customer Service and Technical Support Customer Service: I've never had to contact them.

What do you think of CA Unified Infrastructure Management?

Making IT Monitoring a Snap with CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap Snap can be used in a wide variety of monitoring situations, such as to track servers, virtual machines, applications, databases, network and storage devices. We tested version 7.1 of Snap on a network where it quickly discovered our Windows, Mac and Linux machines in February 2014. It is free and fully functional to monitor up to 30 devices, with a paid version for larger networks.

What is most valuable?

ITRS can define rules to alert when certain parameters that you monitor breach a threshold. Rules can be configured to fire recovery actions automatically to clear the alert. However, if the alert persists for an extended period, then it has... more»

How has it helped my organization?

ITRS helps us to identify a lot of production issues proactively. E.g., ITRS alerts for a critical process memory that grows beyond the configured threshold limits. The limits are set to alert before the process crashes. This allows support... more»

What needs improvement?

ITRS has setup XML that holds the entire monitoring configuration. Only the last 10 versions of the setup XML is saved locally on the gateway server. These 10 versions get overwritten quite easily when you are working with a big configuration... more»

Server Hardware at Basefarm
Dec 28 2016

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of the product are health control, keeping an eye on the status of the server and the repository management for firmware. I can download the SPP from HP and upload it to OneView. After that, I can add servers to... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It provides a better control of what is installed on each server. Now, we have control over the hardware status and what is happening on the hardware in regards to hardware failures and other alarms In the new version, we're going to get... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to choose what I want monitored from the server. I want to disable features like performance monitoring, utilization, and power control. They could add more customization of the SPPs in the system, so I can upload the SPP but... more»
