Cisco Intersight

Cisco Intersight is very well suited for IT engineers, system administrators, and IT personnel that just wants to have a quick, easy use, interface (be it web-based or application-based) to monitor, manage and maintain their Cisco Infrastructure. This product provides just that, and looking at the product road map it can definitely offer more which we are really excited about!

IBM Tivoli NetCool Configuration Manager

This is the best tool for monitoring purpose. We can associate Control-M with this tool(Netcool) for monitoring any activity on Control-M ( Like the jobs which got failed, the long running jobs, jobs that are not started yet, the node down alerts etc.)We can also link it with the drives to get the warning alerts on drive memory status. We receive a critical alert whenever C drive is more than 90% used. Likewise in other drives also.

IBM Tivoli NetCool Configuration Manager

  • This is one of the essential monitoring tool i have ever used before.
  • The best feature is its color code as per the priority. Black color alert - Extremely critical(P1), Red color alert- Critical(P2), Yellow color alerts- Major alerts(P3), Orange Color alert- Minor alerts(P4)
  • We receive a heart beat alert every hour to know whether the tool is working fine or not. This is the best function of this tool.

Cons

Cisco Intersight

  • The cost is a little high per trackable asset
  • Mobile application is missing some features
  • Automatic TAC case creation doesn't always work as advertised
Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Tivoli NetCool Configuration Manager

  • Since it is associated with the Control-M,there is a very small delay in throwing an alert on the Netcool console.
  • I have never faced any as such issue in this tool where there is any area of improvement needed.

I have had servers TAC cases open for issues with Cisco Intersight. Some have yet to be resolved. One case that is still open is where the HCL status ( Hardware Compatibility List ) shows not validated when It should be. We have several servers that have the exact same hardware, OS, and the same firmware. One server will show the HCL is not validated but all others will

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Intersight

Cisco Intersight makes device management easy by automatically detecting the parameters that need to be monitored, so you can save time registering each device. In addition, thanks to its mobile application, you can know most of the time if an incident occurs due to the active alerting of the application.

We have used the other monitoring tool as well like the monitoring tool associated with the Control-M itself but it not even close to the Netcool's features. In Control-M monitoring console we receive the only alerts which is associated to the unusual activity on the Control-M(Like job failure, long running job, jobs which are not started on its schedule time etc.) but in Netcool console we have diverse range of monitoring like drives notification, unusual activity on Control-M etc

IBM Tivoli NetCool Configuration Manager

  • This tool makes the work more easy and transparent. We can monitor the whole by this tool.
  • This tool has best features like color coding as per the severity of the alert like P1, P2,P3 having the different color code.
  • Since, this tool is actually based on the color coding, it requires no additional training for the new users.
  • Its heart beat alert notification in every hour makes it more user friendly. This alert we receive every hour to know whether the tool is working fine or not.
  • A very user friendly and an essential monitoring tool.
