The Dude rocks !!!! 5 stars by jaywi11 Sep 04, 2009
The best network / server monitor out there Found this very useful, can use SNMP profile to graph bit rates on routers and switches(excellent for traffic. We currently use this software to monitor 700+ switch / router devices on our network and a handful of servers. This software can generate a list of outages for any service,Its able to update the stats of all devices in under 20 seconds, it can even email you. You can set it up on a server and use the client installed on another PC to access it, It also has a web interface, nice if your at home and want to check on something without having to install the client software. I have imported some JPG map pictures in our setup and put the equipment roughly where it resides on the map. No google maps support, but the software is entirely free. I tried the automated solution for discovery I ended up with way too many devices (its really thorough). Its got so much going for it. show Review details
Very simple 5 stars by gimpguy Sep 17, 2008 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
This is very simple to use and does a great job of creating a network map among other things. Have some issues detecting one PC on network, DK why. Shut off firewall, etc... maybe it's due to being an HP XP Home OEM, at least that's my guess. Both full XP PRO get along nicely so... anyway, it's a great software and takes some learning but worth while. show Review details
Indispensable tool for your network 5 stars by Jagozu May 22, 2008 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I have tried similar programs, and I think this is the best of all. It scans your networks automatically and informs you of any problems. The interface is good, and it has a lot of possible configurations. Very good indeed! show Review details
