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.
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.
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!
I've waited a long time to find a feature packed application like this. I can now keep track of links between the 40 offices we have worldwide at a glance - unfortunately (unlike the first reviewer) I work for a charity so don't have a plasma screen to display my network map
We are using this to monitor 10 servers, and over 120 clients, and switches..printers, and this is an awesome piece of software. We have tried other similar applications, but found this one with it's map layout to be the nicest to put up on our PLASMA displays in the network area.
