We have a 5520 with IPS installed. You are right about the CPU load with the IPS addition. It really maximizes the CPU utilization of the system, which can be a cause for concern. We've also have the IPS fail at some point due to a vulnerability. It was later patched with a…

Hi Randy, Thank you for the thorough review. You have mentioned about it requiring a fairly decent server. In our case, it's fully virtualized but still just a single VM to monitor 500 elements at most. I'd like to focus on this since we will be adding additional…

Hi Shailesh, You actually have a lot of options. You can choose to implement free and open source systems like Nagios or go commercial with Solarwinds. If you don't have any experience with an NMS, I suggest to try open source systems first just to "get your feet wet".…

Hi Todd, Thanks again for the comment. I didn't know about VMware Operations Manager and that it provides a web interface as well. We have been using the web interface on the vCenter server for around a week now, and we are really liking it more every day. Yes, the…

Hi Todd, Thanks also for the figures. Yes, they did update the core counts allowed in 5.1. We just upgraded to 5.1 over the weekend, not knowing 5.5 is already here. I still have to read up on the compelling reason to upgrade to 5.5. Do you have experience with this…

Hi Noel, Thanks for your inputs. I have to check the exact number, but technically Windows Server Datacenter Edition can more or less handle at least 64 cores. Those are impressive stats for RHEV though, and one of the things that can sway potential users to it. If only…

Hi Todd, Thank you for answering my questions. From what you have said, it does really seem like a lot of work to get this set-up. One good thing about VMware vSphere 5.1 though is a web client. We just upgraded our system over the last weekend and so far the web…

Hi Kurt, Great review! seems like you really have made good use of this product. I'm just curious on the other products that you evaluated prior to deciding that this is the right product for your organization. We currently have Solar Winds and although it works for our…

Hi, We are users of VMware vSphere 5 and has recently upgrade to 5.1. We are quite happy with it, sans the licensing cost. We are looking for alternatives to this and Hyper-V comes to play. Primary reason is that we get it technically for a very minimal add-on to our…

I've been a VMware vSphere 5 and now 5.1 administrator for the last 3 years and I've been looking at other alternatives to it due to high licensing costs. RHEV is one of those that I am seriously considering, as it costs far less than our current set-up. Hyper-V is catching…

Hi Dermont, Thanks for sharing this information. With what you have shared, I think I'm really interested to give Truview a try and see what I'm missing with SW.

Hi Igal-Zeifman, Thank you for replying to my post a few months ago. :) I have some follow-up questions though. What could you recommend to us should we decide to go for your solution? As mentioned, we have an Oracle Peoplesoft Campus Solution system on premise in…

Hi Lee Eckersley, Thank you very much on the reply. It's good to know that you guys are doing this on laptops with just the modest of specs. Being on the go is more of the trend now, and having a BI tool in your laptop without going through VPN to your office is just a…

I work for an educational institution and I definitely think that BPM software like Bizagi can really be of great help to our organization. My question though is on the implementation. How long did it take to fully-deploy Bizagi? Can you also share some of the major…

We are currently using SW as our NMS, and I know that it also has a similar feature. Have you had the opportunity to evaluate SW's offering before deciding on this as NMS? If so, what do you think is this product's main advantage over SW's product offering?

Hi Johan, We currently have a small data center operations environment, having only fewer than 10 servers. However, we do have Oracle Peoplesoft Campus Solution deployed on a fully-virtualized system on a Cisco UCS blade server system. Our application servers are Oracle,…

Hi Dermot, Thanks for the reply. It is really helpful for me in deciding the future of our network monitoring system. Another question though, this time on cost. Compared with SW, is Truview more expensive? You may just base it on SW NCM and IPAM modules for the…

Analyzing existing data for supporting business decisions is very important. We have proven this in our university and has made making decisions regarding very important matters more scientific. We are looking around for a BI tool and have access to Oracle's BI suite as part…

A very good review of the product with matching graphics and stats to prove it. This is really something worth considering for anyone operating a high-traffic site, and I would definitely like to implement this for our university web services.

I work for a higher-education institution, and we just recently deployed our Oracle Peoplesoft Campus solution system. Though not as big as your organization, we have our fair share of these types of attacks every now and then. We have a Cisco ASA firewall, and we see DDoS…

Have you considered other network monitoring products like Solarwinds for your requirements? What features made you choose Truview over other products? We are currently using Solarwinds and I would like to know some features which would make us look at this product as a…

We have been using Nagios, an open-source network monitoring solution for a long time before being able to afford Solarwinds. Though we were able to afford it, cost is still significant. Have you ever considered Solarwinds? If so, what made you choose this product over it?
