Hi folks! As you know, I’ve always been a big proponent of network management & monitoring solutions. I truly believe you can’t manage a large network effectively without having some sort of software that pulls all that information together for you in a meaningful way.
Historically I’ve spoken about SolarWinds and Plixer as great products. I wanted to also mention the offering from HP. This is HP’s IMC (Intelligent Management Center).
With this software you will be able to manage & monitor your infrastructure in such a way so the plethora of data that your network equipment logs will actually display in nice reports so you can make educated decisions about your network.
You can try a free trial of HP IMC and read more about it here.
