I am looking for a good moniroing solution that will provide dashboards and other information for the Windows Server environment I manage. I have looked into SCOM and Solarwinds, but i was hoping to find a service/product that looks like the LogMeIn Dashboards. I have attached a screenshot of the LogMeIn Dashboard that I am talking about. It is an amazing interface, and I am wondering if there are similar products that will work and be safe for my enterprise environment to help better manager our systems.

Thanks LogMeInDashboardImage

Hi,

Many IT companies can you assist you with this. Depending on the size of your business you can  also purchase it directly. I have used 3 major products Labtech, N-Able and Kaseya. My personal preference is Labtech - its less then half the price over the other two and I find the functionality is quite good although it depends on your infrastructure requirements.

Send me an email at daniel @ valiantit com au with exactly what you are after, your company size, location and I can give you some ideas. I also have access to hundreds of IT companies around the world and they could potentially offer a hosted solution which allows you to escalate issues directly to them, and can half your deployment and ongoing costs.  

Regards

Daniel

I prefer  to use OpenSource, I suggest Cacti + nagios on a linux box. I use Cacti , MRTG and Nagios, you can find also other tools check  Zabbix Munin and OpenNMS all are open source. FYI, Cacti is a brilliant software beside nagios and MRTG ..... to narrow down the problem

I am runnig the combination Nagios + Cacti. Nagios is been used for Alarms and Cacti for Trending/Graphs.
