Seamless monitoring of both Windows and Unix servers, with a helpful application topology
Pros and Cons
  • "You can create an application topology that shows relationships between different components."
  • "The initial setup of this tool is complex for people who lack experience with it."

What is our primary use case?

This solution is used for centralized infrastructure and application monitoring. It will take monitoring data from other tools and contribute to the central repository. Sometimes it is integrated with the service desk to create incidents when something goes wrong.

I have used versions of this product for Windows and Linux, and they are slightly different.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the seamless monitoring of both Windows and Unix servers.

You can create an application topology that shows relationships between different components.

What needs improvement?

The advancement of this solution seems to have stalled. These types of products have a long history and it may be best to create a brand new application, from scratch. It is difficult to suggest significant improvements.

The initial setup of this tool is complex for people who lack experience with it.

It would be great to improve the automatic discovery of application topology.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Micro Focus Operations Manager for more than six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no issues with respect to stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability has been good enough for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have been in contact with Micro Focus support a few times and I would rate them a four out of five. Sometimes, they took to long to solve problems. The response time was always good, but it was the time it took to actually resolve the issue that was slow in some cases.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is complex. It is not easy to understand how to correctly implement it for the first time. Subsequent implementations were much easier because we had some experience. You have to understand what you want to monitor before you start with the implementation, and a technical person is required.

The deployment takes approximately three to five months for a medium-sized implementation.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I would recommend.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
