If you're focusing on the network side (so not the internals of the servers), of course the shortlist is network-focused. Leaders on the market are
- Aprisma (ex-Cabletron) Spectrum
- HP OpenView Network Node Manager
- Tivoli NetView
- CA Unicenter NetworkIT Pro

All run/monitor equally well NT and Unix. And sometimes need extra network hardware (e.g. probes) to do some real low-level monitoring.

For the internals of the servers, the story gets more complex. All amongst these four haveserver management products (though Aprisma's relies mostly on BMC), but there are more involved - like BMC Patrol 2000 and quite a number of point solutions (e.g. NetIq) which excel in either Windows or Unix management.

Hope this helps,

IMHO, If you are looking for a Enterprise level NMS system that can monitor, report, diagnose and assist you in keeping your network UP. Look into Aprisma. I've worked for 3 major corporations and reviewed many MNS systems. Aprisma's Spectrum NMSsystem is by far the best, easiest to learn and implement.
