Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Provides the strongest support for automation.""The best part is that you can integrate a two-way network. Earlier we could not manage the storage and ToR switch. Now we can create a LAN with our storage without any interface. In terms of switch management, it is now easy to understand the current configuration. It provides centralized management. It provides a single pane, and you can easily do all updates in one shot. It is a great product.""The OneView Global Dashboard is very user-friendly and it can be used for monitoring the power consumption and temperature of the data center and racks."

"PRTG Network Monitor is a very stable product.""The installation is not that complex.""The solution is very easy to use and the web provides information with ease.""What I've found most valuable is the custom sensor, which allows you to write scripts or code to monitor a specific metric in your environment.""The most valuable features of PRTG Network Monitor are the threshold notification when certain traffic increases and goes beyond the defined threshold. The up and down status email notifications and other notifications are useful. Additionally, it is user-friendly, and customizable, and there are many features available.""The most valuable feature of PRTG Network Monitor is real-time monitoring.""Ability to create a dashboard inside software monitoring.""It is user-friendly. It is easy to set up health checks within PRTG and use scans. It is like a self-service tool, and anyone can configure their own settings within PRTG."

Cons
"Does not allow for switch configuration other than through OneView.""They can improve reporting and provide more customized reports. Currently, reporting is a bit limited. It can be complex to learn and manage for beginners. Because of my experience, I find it comfortable to manage, which might not be the case with beginners. It would be good if they can make it a little bit easier to understand. They can provide a more graphical view of connectivity and other things. Their technical support can also be improved.""It would be better if we can add every HPE device to OneView, such as MSA, as well as the other servers like the DL server and ML server."

More HPE OneView Cons →

"More training videos for installing and configuring this software would have been nice, especially when working with a lot of devices.""PRTG Network Monitor is okay to use, but you'll need some time to analyze the data. If it can automatically locate or identify the problem area, it would be more helpful to users.""Other monitoring tools that I have used are easier to use.""I would like to see network mapping.""I know we're going to move to Docker applications and I understand that PRTG does some monitoring regarding this. I do not know if it is complete. If it's not yet complete, it's something they should consider improving.""The technical support service should be improved.""The operations dashboard is only available in PRTG's enterprise version, but I wish it could be accessed in the standard licensing. It would also be nice if PRTG had templates for dashboard monitoring, software monitoring, etc. It can help me set up a dashboard because now we don't have a template from PRTG, so we need to create one from scratch.""In the next release, PRTG Network Monitor should add a backup solution."
