Monitoring Tools for IT MSPs RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Trying to get an idea of what other IT companies use for their network monitoring. We use a few tools but maybe there are others out there we should look into. We use a mix of 3.

    • MXAlerts for email server (round-trip) monitoring
    • PacketTrap for overall network monitoring
    • WUG to monitor internet lines

    Anyone have experience with these or other similar products?

  • Depends on the amount of available dollars.  I really like Solarwinds if you can afford it for overall network, and have had good experiences with N-Able for overall system management and monitoring.

  • In previous company we used Nagios (www.nagios.com) but can be a little hard to support it (based on *nix), now we are using SpiceWorks (www.spiceworks.com/), it is freeware and very strong tool.
