Good event correlation capabilities, promotes a self-service approach to monitoring

What is our primary use case?

Operations Bridge is designed primarily for large enterprises with highly complex monitoring and service quality demands. These may include legislative requirements. OpsBridge is a scalable, integrated solution to monitoring geo-diverse, very large infrastructures and applications on a worldwide scale. OpsBridge actually consists of a suite of products that are installed separately and integrated together under the "Operations Bridge" banner. The full list of products in the suite is here: https://docs.microfocus.com/it... SiteScope SiteScope: 2020.10 Express, Premium, and Ultimate Application… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "OpsBridge has good event correlation facilities and root-cause identification algorithms."
  • "The solution is overall "heavy", requiring multiple servers, even without HA."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this product is to engage with MicroFocus professional services if you want to implement effectively. Don't under-estimate the need for formal training. New customers will not get the best out of OpsBridge by flying solo from day one. OpsBridge is powerful, comprehensive, and well suited to organizations with the budget to justify it. Its service-driven approach is good and the increasing inclusion of machine-learning features is welcome. Don't underestimate the amount of hardware needed to run the full suite on and plan that into your project. If…

Powerful soft but expensive and poor support

What is our primary use case?

First case of installation of the tool with the business branch of a French telecom provider. We installed the tool with SiteScope, Network Node Manager and Network automation. I don't remember the exact environment but we had more than 2000 network nodes and a number of servers. Installation of a preprod and prod environment. Not much customization. Some rules for enriching and installing the different connectors. Some business view was created too Great experience but I moved to network automation for a new project.

Pros and Cons

  • "We haven't faced any stability issues. There hasn't been any crashes or glitches."
  • "The price is quite expensive, and because of this, we may try another solution."

What other advice do I have?

We don't have a relationship with the solution; we're just a customer. It's a good solution overall. On the market, there aren't many other solutions, other than maybe BMC or a few more. It's expensive, but it's very good. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

A simple setup that's scalable and stable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for event monitoring and evaluation.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features of the solution are its grouping scripts and event focus."
  • "In a future release, we would like an improved upgrade process. When you upgrade it now, it first uninstalls everything and then reinstalls all the packages, which means any customization that you've done in the directories on the surface disappears."

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I would advise others to look into the correlation techniques and adaptability through grouping scripts. The out of the box functionality is great, but there's so much more that you can do with it including dashboards, etc. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Manages our critical systems but it's a complicated product

What is our primary use case?

We use the on-premises version to monitor our systems and manage emails. All our systems use Operations Bridge, especially the critical systems.

Pros and Cons

  • "We use the on-premises version to monitor our systems and manage emails. All our systems use Operations Bridge, especially the critical systems."
  • "It is a very complicated product. It's difficult to manage. Nowadays, products are very easy to manage, deploy, and integrate, but Operations Bridge is very complicated to manage."

What other advice do I have?

It should be easier to use this product, because once you're in production, systems are more complicated. This kind of tools should be very simple and straightforward. I would rate this as six out of ten.

Stable, good support and community, and very good for event management and agent-based monitoring

What is our primary use case?

It is mostly used for event management. We use it to consolidate events from different data collectors.

Pros and Cons

  • "The correlation feature is the most used feature. It allows you to correlate events from different sources and have more meaningful events."
  • "The deployment of agents on new CI should be improved. There should be some kind of automation to directly deploy them from the console. It can maybe have some more AI functions because most of the other tools are going in that direction."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Operations Bridge an eight out of ten. It is a very good solution for event management and agent-based monitoring.
