Cisco Intersight

Cisco Intersight is very well suited for doing firmware upgrades across all of your cisco hardware. So far we have had no problems pushing out new firmware. It's also well suited for hardware management. Cisco TAC has the ability to pull logs for the IMC for themselves, which saves you from having to pull the logs yourself and then uploading them to the case. It may or may not be appropriate for upgrading operating systems. I have not been able to test it.

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.

  • 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.

Cisco Intersight

We use the Dell OpenManage product previously when we were using Dell servers. Cisco Intersight has much more capabilities than Dell OpenManage had in the past. I haven't used any other product lately which would allow me to compare the features. We use What's up gold for up/down monitoring but It doesn't have the firmware update features.

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
