Network management and monitoring solutions can be confusing. Over a number of years technology has allowed newer vendors to deliver very comprehensive solutions at affordable prices.

The new Technology has allowed very feature rich solutions. It is not now a matter of what you can monitor –how deep and what product works best for a customers requirements.

Listed in the Overview is a breakdown of common requirements. The Tabs have recommended product by Focus.

The Tabs above lists product by Focus and strengths, the information below is an overview that breaks down product requirements by category.

Network management and monitoring solutions by nature are feature rich and include at minimum:

  • Device and application discovery, understanding device relationships with intelligent default monitoring settings
  • Out-of-the-box monitoring of Servers such as Active Directory(r), DNS, Microsoft Exchange, FTP, Web, MS SQL Server, SMTP Servers and many more
  • Faults, Alarms and notification, such as Up, Down and Link not active or thresholds surpassed
  • Logical and dynamic grouping of devices to facilitate organization and management
  • Creates customizable network maps
  • Has a cutting-edge user interface and dashboard that enable you to quickly get a clear view of the health of your network and application infrastructure
  • Leverages SNMP, WMI, and RPC for agent-less monitoring of critical applications and systems
  • Built-in Wizards guide administrators through multi-step tasks
  • Restrict users or administrators by device, category, type, or application

Enterprise monitoring features:

  • Virtual Host Monitoring
  • Embedded root-cause analysis
  • automatically re-test at a user-specified interval to suppress false alarms
  • Template-Based Administration, Custom Dashboards

Deep Client Monitoring is desired:

  • Monitors end-user experience with synthetic transactions
  • Network inventory that automatically collects information about node hardware and software
  • User activity (worker) monitoring
  • User login and activity/inactivity time
  • Application usage grouped by the activity type (work, gaming, chatting, web browsing, etc.), Visited web pages and user bandwidth

Network Centric focus:

  • VoIP and call quality
  • Root cause of application slow down or outage (Network vs. System vs. application)
  • Flow-based in-depth traffic analysis ie: Netflow, sFlow
  • Virtual machines within a single host, networked data analysisFinancial network transactions ie:FIX

CompuwareGomez provides the only end to end monitoring solution that covers the entire application delivery chain, allowing you to test and measure from every location in the chain. You can test the entire chain — from the First Mile (your data center) to the Last Mile (your users) — so you can find and fix the broadest set of issues to ensure a quality experience.

Compuware dynaTrace is the on-premises suite of solutions in Compuware APM. It transforms how web and non-web business-critical applications are monitored, managed and optimized throughout the life cycle. dynaTrace is the only on-premises APM platform that monitors all transactions, 24/x7, to quickly isolate performance problems down to the exact line of code in order to satisfy end users and maximize business results.

OmniCenter

OmniCenter® is a monitoring, alerting, and reporting appliance which provides cost-effective and easy-to-deploy application, network, and systems management. It provides a unified single view into virtually all IT components, from end-user application experience to device-level performance and capacity planning.

The appliance-based architecture simplifies deployment, with all hardware and software pre-integrated. Several appliance options are available to suit any size environment or redundancy requirement, including clustering, hot-standby, and distributedMonitoring Overview data collection with centralized reporting and administration.

OmniCenter is 100% HTML web-based for both reporting and administration, from any operating system or platform. This architecture means there is no Java-client to download, no agents, probes, or client software to install, and no remote-desktop access required.

Multiple users and administrators can all be working in the application seamlessly and easily, from anywhere in the extended enterprise, including over VPN connections.

 

nVisionAxence Logo

nVision is an easy to use tool for network mapping and visualization, identifying hardware and software assets, remotely monitoring and managing computers and devices, and monitoring key application servers and user activity. Ideal for small/medium businesses where IT staff is responsible for both networks and systems.

Alerts can be set up to notify administrator of problems before the users start calling. nVision constantly monitors your critical network assets, provides tools to analyze and troubleshoot problems, helps in planning the development of your infrastructure, provides many reports including device and user activity, hardware and software auditing and device CPU, Memory and Disk utilization.

OmniCenter® also includes automated application discovery, detecting running applications and open ports on a device, and placing it automatically into intelligent Application groups, including E-Mail, Web, Microsoft File Sharing, Infrastructure, SQL Servers, VPN Devices, and many others. These default applications can also be disabled if users have their own application groups they prefer.

OmniCenter Virtualization Dashboard provides deeper visibility into the virtual server environment, with detailed real-time and historical information about host systems and the guests that run on them. IT Managers can now see exactly which guest systems are using host resources and quickly identify resource hogs or systems that are creating performance issues.
