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.

I have been using ipMonitor for the past 10 years to successfully complete small to mid-size network projects by providing visibility of the network and the devices in addition to reporting to the client throughout the acceptance process. It has also proven to be a valuable resource when it comes to identifying network problems and improving overall network performance

  • The interface could be more intuitive.

I have very few pieces of software, that are specific to IT and IT services, that just work. Honestly, I don't need the support as it never breaks, but I believe in rewarding vendors that make valuable products

There are very few pieces of software or equipment that I use on a daily basis that just work. This is one of them.

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.

I feel that ipMonitor does not provide the granularity or level of configuration we require for our teams. We actually are looking at other means of customizing our monitors using the products listed, which I think will provide my teams with the ability to create better alerts that can be customized easier and can provide more depth of monitoring and alerting.

Return on Investment

Auvik

  • Better customer experiences
  • Simplicity addressing network concerns
  • Automated network discovery and documentation
Drew Hackworth | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds ipMonitor

  • We experienced a network issue that our provider stated was us generating more traffic that our allotted bandwidth. Solar winds allowed us to identify and traffic actual flow of traffic and quantitatively prove we were not saturating our bandwidth connection.
  • We used the log summary to identify an employee that had more access than they should have and were access information they should not have had access to.
