Opmantek NMIS Benefits

Systems Architect at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The big thing is the event management engine, which is really, really nice to use, and it comes at a reasonable price, unlike some of the competitors like Netcool from IBM. Those kinds of tools are hugely expensive and they come as resource-heavy types of solutions. This obviously doesn't require as much hardware, but it does offer similar benefits where you can manage all the events. It's quite efficient in terms of polling, so you can actually load the pollers quite a bit, compared to some of the other solutions. It doesn't do bug polling every five minutes, or every minute, or whatever it is that you set the polling for. So that's important. It will do a bug poll once a day - whenever the chron job is set to do the work. In my case, I prefer to only poll interfaces that have descriptions, and the ones that don't have descriptions, I don't really want to know about them. It does allow for all these bits and pieces and adjustments, and fine tuning to get it to a point where it works for my needs. View full review »
