More Huawei eSight Pros »

"The most valuable features the solution offers are compliance, reliability, and information about reliability.""Compared to other vendors, like NetBrain, managing the solution is easy. They made it very user-friendly.""The features we find most valuable is the configuration backup automation, the configuration compliance, the security vulnerability detection and upgrading devices.""I use it for monitoring the entire network for the company. We oversee nodes down, we oversee devices heading up to crossing the threshold for CPU usage. We oversee power so power backups on the switches, we oversee if they're down or if they're failing. We oversee any node down or any router from any vendor.""The feature that I really enjoy is the ability to script changes across all of your devices.""It allows us to manage backups in big companies. It is also useful in managing the configuration changes."

Cons
"The solution needs to improve it's user interface to make it more modern and stylish. They need to design proper menu positions, features, etc. Right now the layout is complicated."

More Huawei eSight Cons »

"The interface of solar winds could be improved.""On NCM, reporting could be a bit better. It's completely become just one report. When I try to create a custom report, the solution just commits old server data.""The Network Configuration Manager needs to improve the access control list compliance.""The network logs could be improved. When the error logs come across with those false positive alarms in the error logs.""For each device, when you open the network performance monitor, it will give you all of the information about the device, but many of the natural configuration management features are not on that page.""Its whole architecture is a bit traditional. They can change the architecture to make it more modern and multi-tenant. Currently, we can do multi-tenancy, but we need to buy another product. Its look and feel can be improved. They can also put in more effort into building the THWACK community and use the information about various customer issues and requests to build the new releases."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"With a minimal bundle, we pay about $3000 a year in licensing costs. If you have multiple devices in your network, you must buy the bundle, which is 100% identical for your infrastructure. If you have 15 devices, you need 15 licenses, for example. That's one bundle. You don't pay for anything over and above that.""You have a base license for 50 devices, and then you can add more licenses as you go."
