We only have around 400 Cisco devices to monitor on our Local LAN. It is a Hospital environment and we could do with the best product for the right money.
We are considering CiscoWorks LMS however on closer reflection we already have NI Observer and we can purchase an add on to give us the Campus Manager view equivalent.
There is no remote WAN traffic to monitor as we have Juniper boxes sat on either side of every WAN link.
I like the idea of the config updates of ciscoworks however KIWI CatTool can do this for 350 quid..
My question is this:
would I be better off buying a product like Solarwinds Engineers Edition and utilising NI Observer for the Topology/Campus view and using Kiwi for the config updates... or am I missing something here.....
Any honest input would be greatly received.
