What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that you can utilize the main file from various vendors for integration. In addition, you can carry out customized polling for certain parameters, so that is an add-on to enable a customer to utilize it efficiently.

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, I would say that the resources utilized could be a bit higher, and that is one of the challenges that isn't optimized to my expectations. For additional features that could be included, I have nothing to suggest for now. Things are going well. It's really a classic model. If… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I've previously used other in-house tools as well as some managing engines, but none of them are as efficient as the Micro Focus products. The company was formerly owned by HP and it now has a network with Micro Focus. Of course, HP is a very well-known brand across the globe and that increases the… more»

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… more»

What needs improvement?

The network phase in the product could be improved. Other tools such as SolarWinds have real-time bandwidth, and they can calculate bandwidth in MBs, which means something. But Micro Focus Network Node Manager always watches bandwidth. With Micro Focus, bandwidth utilization networks always show in bytes. It makes it difficult for the end-user to calculate. Micro Focus needs to offer customized dashboards. The reporting is very complex. It's not simple. As a network person, I want to see the top end network devices, who is using maximum bandwidth or who is using maximum MB. It only requires a… more»

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.

What is most valuable?

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. Secondly, the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our NOC is heavily using and dependent on the product for quick action and troubleshooting network issues.

Reporting. Even though this is available in separate software (iSPI) there is potential in making the reporting more SLA-aware and more intuitive.

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