Has the ability to carry out customized polling for certain parameters, so that is an add-on to enable a customer to utilize it efficiently

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for network monitoring, switches, routers, firewalls, all kinds of network equipment you can utilize for monitoring. It allows for multiple integrations for SNP purposes. There are many different use cases for the utilization of the product. I'm an IT architect and technical consultant and we partner with Micro Focus. I've dealt with over 1,000 customers who use the product and each organization has multiple customers and multiple users across multiple regions, in the Middle East, India, and other countries. The product is used mainly by IT managers and IT admins. It's… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "You can utilize the main file from various vendors for integration."
  • "The resources utilized could be a bit higher, and that is one of the challenges that isn't optimized"

What other advice do I have?

It's important for the customer to understand his own requirements so that he can make the right decision because this network node manager has multiple components. Whether it's network monitoring, reporting, IP telephoning, or MPLS VPN. There are a lot of extensive packs available. The customer also needs to think about their requirements based on the product extension packs and how they would be deployed. These are things that need to be taken into consideration. I would rate this product a nine out of 10.

Mature product but some basic requirements are missing

What is our primary use case?

We are a service provider and deploy in multiple locations such as banks and commercial organizations which have larger networks with 200 and sometimes 2,000 or 3,000 devices. Some of our customers have network teams of 25 to 30 but most have less than that, usually anywhere between five to 20 people. Most are IT admins, IT managers and workers in IT departments.

Pros and Cons

  • "If you install one node on Network Node Manager and want to scale it up, it's pretty easy to create more nodes."
  • "The way the solution currently works means I'm not able to customize my own reports."

What other advice do I have?

Micro Focus is a very mature product but some basic requirements are missing and there are services that they don't offer. For example, I'm an end-user. The way the solution currently works means I'm not able to customize my own reports. I would rate it a seven out of ten.

internal causal engine keeps us updated on critical errors in our network environment

Pros and Cons

  • "Most valuable function would have to the internal causal engine and its root cause analyzer which keep us updated on critical errors and incidents in our network environment."
  • "Reporting. Even though this is available in separate software (iSPI) there is potential in making the reporting more SLA-aware and more intuitive."

What other advice do I have?

Initially, keeping the default settings is wise. Get familiar with and become knowledgeable in the product before getting into advanced tweaking.
