Re: Best Network Management & Monitoring Application
As it was mentioned in previous answer, it all depends what you want to manage and monitor and metrics you want to see. Have being said that, Solar Winds "Orion" is a great network management system which have a list of a number of modules that you can integrate as you move forward. You do have to start with the Network Management Module (NMM) with a number of licenses or unlimited. You have the choice to purchase individual modules later such as bandwidth monitor, IPSLA, Netflow, IP Management (IPAM), Configuration Manager an so on. This can get expensive but it is a great integrated system and the annual support is reasonable. Hope this helps! Ed.
