We are looking for good network monitoring tools, to see what is going on in our network and were there are bottlenecks.

We have had a lot of complaints of end-users about slowness of our network, but we can find out where this is.

We are running on VMWare with hyper converged storage.

Any recommendations for us? Is doesn't have to be free.

Try Solar Winds (solarwinds.com). This is very good network management software (not free).

You could try PTRG by Paessler (https://www.paessler.com/prtg/prtg-network-monitor). It's free upto 100 sensors and is quite versatile for monitoring various aspects of devices and network. We use it to monitor bandwidth usage on our network, status of network ports, cpu usage, ram usage, disk speeds, etc.

Hi,

Try PRTG, a server uptime and utilisation, network monitoring and bandwidth usage software package for server infrastructure. basically it uses SNMP, packet sniffing and Netflow to monitor the target Windows and Linux systems.

Try the free version for up to 100 sensors.

It also has support for mobile clients so you can monitor your infrastructure using your smartphone from anywhere.
