I'm in the process of testing different monitoring tools that I can use to setup a NOC for my company. Can anyone tell me what they use to monitor routers/switches/servers on their networks?

I need to monitor about 50 routers/switches and roughly 100 servers.

Monitoring Software

by rpennell In reply to We use three

Mr. Wiz

If you don't mind me asking what hardware and monitors are you using? My management wants to use 2 50" LCD Monitors with quad screen displays on each. I know that some folks just use the normal 21" monitors, but, they want to have large displays so you can see at a glance.

Thanks

Ron

Mr. Wiz and everyone else who might be using SolarWinds Performance Monitor or OPManager from Adovent. Can you give me your opinion of either product?

Thanks

Solarwinds

I have started using this in our enterprise for about two months, albeit a much smaller enterprise, and it has worked beautifully. Can support SMS messages when critical notifications are needed.

Can handle everything down to windows services managing everything from back-up to exchange services.

Price isn't too bad, especially when you are talking about monitoring 150 items.
