Re: Best management cisco software

There's no one size fits all.

Cisco's enterprise class solution is CiscoWorks LMS: It's a very full featured configuration and fault management tool. It's performance management capabiliites are lacking in areas most folks are looking for and many CiscoWorks shops often end up using a third party tool such as MRTG (open source) or Solarwinds for performance monitoring. LMS will set you back on the order of US$20,000.

A small Cisco-only shop may get by with Cisco Network Assistant, a rudimentary tool with limited device support. See the product data sheet for details: The price is right - free

Solarwinds ( and Whats Up Professional ( are two good third party tols that many folks use happily. Solarwinds runs about $3-4,000 once you buy all the components and What's Up about $2-3,000.

you could also have a look at REALTECH theGuard (vendor independant). With its newest release it also has a web gui and config management.

Some could have mentioned this product; HP-OV NNM

If you can afford it, then it is almost the standard Network management software : Moreover, you can adopt it with your environment (250 nodes and more..)
