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.

SPDocKit

The product is second to none in providing an accurate and detailed view of a SharePoint farm, its composition, and its configuration. It is an essential tool for discovery purposes, and it should be used anytime business continuity and disaster recover plans/documentations are being prepared.Since SharePoint doesn't include a "farm clone" method, SPDocKit provides the next best thing in attempts to replicate configuration. It can also be used as a Q&A checkpoint through the use of farm snapshots to highlight differences that exist between two or more environments.

Pros

Auvik

  • Setup is easy
  • Integrates with Connectwise
  • Integrates with IT Glue

SPDocKit

  • Discovery. When trying to learn the ins and outs of an unfamiliar SharePoint farm configuration, SPDocKit creates a complete and accurate picture.
  • Documentation. Documenting farm configurations manually is a very time and labor intensive process, so I turn to SPDocKit to automate the process for me.
  • Change Tracking. SPDocKit can take a series of farm snapshots over time, and it can highlight and track differences in configuration and settings from snapshot to snapshot.

Cons

Auvik

  • SNMP traps (not an advertised feature)
  • Endpoint monitoring (not an advertised feature)
Drew Hackworth | TrustRadius Reviewer

SPDocKit

  • Cloud Readiness. Unfortunately, SPDocKit cannot run against SharePoint Online (SPO) environments due to its reliance on server APIs that aren't exposed in the cloud.
  • Variations. SPDocKit exists in a number of forms for licensing purposes, and not all versions are equivalent. It's sometimes difficult to know what version of the product houses the feature that I want to use, as well as whether or not I'm licensed for it.

SPDocKit 10.0
Based on 1 answer
SysKit support is second to none. On occasions where I've had questions about any aspect of SPDocKit, I've reached out to SysKit through available channels and usually gotten back a detailed and helpful answer within 24 hours of my request submission. They're also very friendly and supply more information that may be related to my inquiry or problem. I never feel like customer support is an afterthought with SysKit.

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.

SPDocKit

I am unaware of any other product on the market that does what SysKit SPDocKit does. SPDocKit has certainly been doing it the longest, and it offers a unique value proposition and set of capabilities.

Return on Investment

Auvik

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

SPDocKit

  • The product cost may appear large, but when you compare the cost and reuse of the product to what it would cost in time and effort to carry out its functions manually, the cost is truly a drop in the bucket.
  • Since I operate as a consultant, I consider the SysKit SPDocKit tool essential to the work I do. It allows me to go into new environments, generate a farm report, and use that report as something I provide to the client - as well as for my own purposes.
