Real Time Network Monitoring

We have just over 200 stores across the country and we are looking for a simple monitoring tool that can show us a map of the country and an icon for each cisco switch we have out there.  I would like a map that shows in real time when a device goes down.  I would like something the overview map that Meraki uses on their dashboard.   Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks Marvin  for adding

Thanks Marvin  for adding that,  your inputs are always a value add.

 

As Marvin said ,yes in Cisco Prime LMS the topology is not real time , it depends on the data collection ,when ever a new data collection ran and completed  the topology is updated.

data collection completion time can vary depends on the size of the network

Note that the topology map in

Note that the topology map in Prime LMS will not show real time (or near real time) updates. It's more of a connectivity overview and only updates status based on a polling cycle which usually is on the order of 30 minutes to 2 hours. The alerts dashboard in LMS will show near real time status. It's TBD if or when the successor Prime Infrastructure product will do that on the topology map as we're still waiting for that feature to ship..

SolarWinds NPM (with or without the Topology Mapper) or What's Up Gold are more suited to the stated goal.
