Recomendations for Monitoring software (Spiceworks and similar). Needs to have phone app too

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help with recomendations for Moniroting software. I want something that will show things like low disk space, high processor usage, what's using most network bandwidth etc. Primarily I want it to monitor Servers, but if it can monitor PC's too that's even better. If the product is right we'd be willing to pay for it.

I have used Spiceworks a little in the past and I thought it seemed like it would be a great tool, if only it could actually find all the machines. I spent several hours trying to troubleshoot it and I came to the conclusion that it just took up too much time to get it configured and working -- I'd be willing to give it a try again, if it comes highly recommended but I might need a recommendation too on how/where to get some good training on it.

Ideally I'd like something that's not too resource hungry itself. It also needs to have an app for iOS (preferably android too).

Any recomendations would be really appreciated.

Thanks

I use Solarwinds SAM product.  Server and Application Manager.   If your environment not that large 10-30 servers I would use IPMon.  Also a Solarwinds Orion software.  Its cheaper and has all the basic stuff you need.
Now if you want a mobile option, that would be an additional SAM mobile admin that can view on smartphone.  Another $2-3K module.  Let me know if you have more questions about it.
