Hi I am currently trying to evaluate some server/network monitoring software and I am getting a little disheartened at software which promises to deliever everything but never comes up to the mark! Can anyone recommend something worth having a look at?
What I want to monitor is:
7 Windows 2003 servers (inc 4 DCs 2 of which are on remote sites and an Exchange server)
- specifically the diskspace, CPU usuage and RAM usage but also all errors in the event logs on all servers.
I also want to monitor our network kit which includes HP procurve switches and Cisco routers (handling VPNs to 2 remote sites)
- specifically I want to know what machines are using most band width and which protocols, I am aware of Cisco netflow but I can not find something that display all the information in a format which is simple to anaylise.
