Has anyone used the application called Foglight Network Management System by Quest? Just want to know what are your experiences with it. I used to use NEWT Professional then moved onto Spiceworks. But someone this week recommended Foglight

, especially for monitoring Wireless traffic? Had a few issues with my LAN wireless connection though also have the old and trusted CAT5e, but those users not hardwired into the LAN complained of slow speeds. Found out it was some users cause the bottleneck. Regards Newton

Software/Hardware used:
Windows 2008 Server, windows SBS 2003

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello Guardian,

I personally don’t know Quest’s Foglight, but even so a got to the product page to learn a little about it. It seems to be free to up to 100 device. If it fits your environment, I would give it a try…

If you want, try <a href=”http://www.mikrotik.com/thedude.php”>The Dude</a>.
It is a completely free Network Monitoring Solution which can monitor windows, linuxes, routers and every SNMP enabled device. It also have an embedded Syslog server and much more…

Some of it’s features include:
Auto network discovery and layout
Discovers any type or brand of device
Device, Link monitoring, and <b>notifications</b>
Allows you to draw your own maps and add custom devices
Supports SNMP, ICMP, DNS and TCP monitoring for devices that support it
Individual Link usage monitoring and graphs
Direct access to remote control tools for device management
Supports remote Dude server and local client
Runs in Linux Wine environment, MacOS Darwine, and Windows

Depending on your need to monitor, it might worth a try.

    Saturno, thanks - that's a good one. Since you mentioned it. I then went into my archives (of downloads) and noticed that i have a download copy. Its a nasty habit when one gets to download stuff then not use it or evaluate it properly. Regards Newton
