Auvik

Auvik is a great tool for discovering the details and eccentricities of your or your customer's networks. It truly is a tool I didn't know I needed and now I can't live without. Immediately after deploying it I was able to proactively identify some network pain points that allowed me to correct multiple network deficiencies and create happier customers without even realizing they were having problems (slow network speeds, congested ports). Onboarding and ongoing support are top notch. They really don't just "throw you to the wolves," though that being said, the complexity of the product does merit taking the onboarding and initial setup seriously and not just going with a "deploy and go" type of scenario, but that's strictly because of the scope and feature set that the product offers.

Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution

Although Cisco Prime [LAN Management Solution] is a nice tool and no other 4rd party tools can match its native monitoring and managing capabilities still i have given less rating and that's because it is only for Cisco vendor Devices. Hence if you have only Cisco infrastructure then go for it or else look for another 4rd party tool in conjunction with Cisco prime.

Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution

  • You can deploy from simple snippets of config to a whole template to multiple devices at the same time. That saves us a lot of time (remember that time is money) when we need to change some setting globally, like adjust a ACL or add new global policy. Doesn't matter how many models of the same equipment you have.
  • The Network Topology map is also a great tool for troubleshooting. You can check several aspects of the topology, the connection between the equipment, the status of the connections and even check specific alarms related to that part of the topology (or map). Again, consider that in a multi site, global environment and you'll see the benefits.
  • Inventory and firmware updates are also great tools inside the solution. You have check exactly what equipment is outdated and schedule an update with a couple of clicks. You can do that also in a batch, saving a lot of time (and money) and avoid to go handle the equipment one by one, sometimes even needing to have physical access to those equipment.

Cons

Auvik

  • SNMP traps (not an advertised feature)
  • Endpoint monitoring (not an advertised feature)

Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution

  • Cisco Prime LMS isn't able to gather metrics from firewalls with multiple contexts, so you need to create each context as a new firewall, which can make it cumbersome and difficult to manage if you have more than 10 contexts.
  • The application also doesn't support the latest Cisco technologies such as ACI and UCS, so LMS shouldn't be considered a single pane of glass for all things Cisco.
  • It seems that the development of the product has slowed in order to focus on newer offerings from Cisco. It's unfortunate because this product is a good workhorse that chugs right along and doesn't eat up resources like some of Cisco's newer products do.

Alternatives Considered

Auvik

Actually, we went from Auvik to LogicMonitor, Auvik is like playing with Tinker Toys compared to LogicMonitor. We moved from Auvik to LogicMonitor for a bunch of reasons, pricing was among them. Auvik charges extra for Netflow monitoring where LogicMonitor has is included. If you want anything more than basic ping monitoring in Auvik you have to do an SNMP walk on every device that you are monitoring and then write to create custom OID's to monitor for what should be simple out of the box monitoring, such as Cisco Health or Jitter/Latency.

Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution

There are various 3rd party tools available in the market which not only supports monitoring of cisco devices but also supports non-cisco devices, even with these capabilities in these 3rd party tools Cisco Prime has maintained a uniqueness in its products being the native tool from Cisco. The uniqueness is about product supportability for given devices and some of the edge features such as configuration management, detailed heatmaps etc

Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution

  • It has helped us with our quarterly wireless security testing by pinpointing the location of non-approved access points vs. hunting for them via signal strength.
  • Saves time by helping to identify network health issues before they become a definitive problem causing downtime.
  • With errors detected early, we have noticed our wi-fi network is much more stable thus freeing up our engineer's time elsewhere.
