Re: HP OpenView Vs CiscoWorks

We use both for different reasons,

Openview – network management (up or down)

CiscoWorks – network maintenance, software and configuration management

They really play in different arenas,

Hope this helps a little

Device Fault Manager (DFM) within CW2K can also do Fault Management as well.

Re: HP OpenView Vs CiscoWorks

whatever you do don't run Ciscoworks on a AIX platform it's extremely slow and it will frustrate the heck out of you . Is your network mostly cisco or is it a mix that should play into your decision also .
