hi bawer, yes im aware of:

- gfi
- also - solarwinds

im not asking that though!!

im trying to understand if some management software has issues like:

bugs -  does specific management systems have issues with specific instances
hanging system - does a management system have these issues due to some reason

note:  im not sure just putting it out their!!!!!!!!!

question.  or are you saying whatever management software i get, it is what you read is what you get and for the purposes of 'user real management system use', then 'gfi' is recommended as you suggest, but can you give me some example of why it is useful in comparison to other, (just so i know what to look at when im deciding/comparing), then i am then good to go ?
