Network Monitoring/Hardware Tools
Posted on 2013-01-25
Good day everyone. So I just found out today that we have some money left over in our IT budget and was informed if there were any monitoring tools I would like to purchase before the fiscal year ends for us.
I have been looking for a robust tool that I could manage up-time of our websites, manage our servers (both VM and host), how the network is doing, have reporting functionality, intrusion detection, etc.
What would you guys recommend or what do you use?
We are a small shop but have about 12 physical servers, 15 VMs, 3 web applications, 12 desktops/laptops, a few switches and routers. We currently don't manage any network hardware/software as it is managed by our IT department.
