Has anyone ever seen the application called Intermapper? This program allows you to map out your network and it can be configured to send out a notification if a device goes down via e-mail or pager. It also allows you to create log files on traffic and utilization on links. I have had some of my devices go down and then back up here lately and the logs that is generated automatically really doesnt tell me anything other then the device has went down and then back up. However it doesnt have any way of allowing you to gather data you want to monitor and putting it into a reporting format for management.
I know Ciscoworks has something similar but it also has so many other software modules you can add to it and Im not sure which one I should be looking at. If anyone can help out I sure would appreciate it. Im hoping that if anyone has used anything like this they will be able to point me in the right direction and have some positive comments.
We are a University Campus with about 489 devices that we need to monitor, upgrade, and maintain configuration files. This is getting to be very difficult to due one at a time and ridiculous to do it this way. We also need a better way to monitor all our devices with real time reporting and notifications.
Basically HP OpenView NNM would be one of the alternatives you may want to consider. It is quite flexible and when tuned correctly is capable of doing the stuff you need. There is some basic reporting that comes with NNM, though you would need to create something custom I guess. You can always combine that with the CW2000 syslog reporting which can assist you quite a bit.
