What do you think of CA Unified Infrastructure Management?

Valuable Features We mainly monitor services around the database applications, and things like that. The most valuable features of UIM are that it's scalable and it's relatively easy to set up monitoring on the servers. • Room for Improvement The reporting part could be improved. We’re using other tools for that. Maybe we’ll continue to do that, but that is one thing we are missing; and the SLA, and what you can do there. As I cannot compare it with others, it's a bit difficult to say. • Stability Issues It's very stable. • Scalability Issues It is scalable.

Things take time. • Other Advice I think you...

What is most valuable?

The feature which I like the most would have to be the GUI. At first, I was put off, as I felt it was too complex or busy. Upon using it to setup devices, I found it was well laid out and has come a long way.

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

I wish it had more options for personalizing the product, such as being able to include your company's logo without editing text files. More templates for specific devices.

How has it helped my organization?

This is a new tool for our company. This project is the first one on which we're using this tool.

What needs improvement?

There is no service mode setup in this monitoring tool if you want to snooze alerts for any specific amount of time, to account for any activity change or major incident. That is one of the drawbacks. We have also faced some issues regarding... more»

What do you think of Opsview Monitor?

Valuable Features There are various features in Opsview that our organization finds valuable. We love the accurate alerting, graphs, and customization of alerts. • Improvements to My Organization It has improved our up time and we are better able to identify issues before users find out. • Room for Improvement I would like to see a bit more with the Jasper Reporting, but not a major issue. • Use of Solution I've been using it for three years; however, our organization has been using it for over five years. • Deployment Issues No deployment issues. • Stability Issues No stability issues. • Scalability Issues No scalability issues. • Customer Service and Technical Support Customer Service: Customer service is great; always responsive, within...
