Network Motioning and Management Tool Recommendation

5 Comments1 Solution243 ViewsLast Modified:
We are looking for a network monitoring and configuration management tool. More than 90% of our network is HPE (Prourve)/Aruba, and we use Infoblox IPAM.

The options we are looking at currently are HPE IMC, Infoblox NetMRI and SolarWinds.

At the moment cost has priority over nice to have features, so cut down versions of the above would also be one way to go. We have bout 600 switches and growing.


What we absolutely need in terms of features:

device inventory
device state  - basically being able to see if a switch is down
switch configuration backup as a scheduled task

Provided the above is covered, it would be nice to have:

network map with L3/L2 overlays
loop detection
device configuration compliance (to a set of policies and/or predefined baseline configuration)
device configuration comparison (side by side)
device configuration deployment
firmware inventory
firmware installation

Anything else that would be useful that you can recommend?


Thank you!
