It [Cisco UCS Manager] is extremely well suited to large virtual infrastructure environments with resource dense blades. This solution is also great if you want to consolidate a large number of servers (if they are servers that need to stay physical, but can fit in the profile of a blade) - this would reduce data center space utilization as well as power and cooling. Cisco UCS Manager is also great if you're looking for centralized management of a larger number of servers. This would not be a great solution if you have a very small shop - it's not cheap and probably wouldn't give you a ROI if you only have a couple dozen servers total. I'd say it would be overkill for small shops, but if you have the money and don't care, you'll still like it.

We are enjoying the ability to review historical alerts within the app itself. previously we needed to rely on our ticketing system to capture this information. Its great at detecting drops in connectivity and is very visual. We would like to see improvements to uptime reporting and network topology screens that show the relationship that one device has with another

  • It allows us to directly connect to a hardware-based server in the blade center as though we were physically at the console.
  • It allows us to monitor the entire system for faults.
  • It lets us manage connectivity.
  • It is set to alert us via email if a fault occurs.

LogicMonitor

  • Granular data and metrics on all types of systems WITH graphical display
  • Range of products supported is vast and way more robust than our legacy mon tool
  • Customization abounds, and a lot of options to really make it work for customer nuances - a must for an MSP-used tool
  • Dashboards are key for internal management as well as providing MSPs a view and value add

Cons

Cisco

  • Automation: There is a simple power-shell CMD lets, but it leaves more to be desired.
  • Navigation: Navigating the interface can be confusing.
  • Integration: Integration with ESXi hosts while doing FW upgrades would be hugely beneficial without the need for additional tools.

LogicMonitor

  • Training videos for SQL Server for example, some errors are difficult to solve.
  • When you disable an alert, it disappears for a short time, and then it is activated it comes again.
  • Sometimes it is needed to have a guide to solve the issues reported by LogicMonitor.

    Our platform is broken down into Pro and Enterprise Pricing. Pro includes monitoring for all of your cloud, hybrid, and on-premises infrastructure. Our Enterprise package includes all of this, plus our AIOps and Machine Learning functionality that provides dynamic thresholds, root cause analysis, anomaly detection and more! LogicMonitor only charges by the device. What is considered a device? A device is anything with an IP address that you want to monitor, including a physical device or a cloud resource. This means multiple data sources under the same IP address can be monitored for the same price. Unlike some monitoring platforms. we don’t charge per node, interface, or metric.

    This product has met virtually all of our needs. It was easy to implement and has been simple to support. Customization has been intuitive with many options available. They keep adding features and expanding available options. The future of LogicMonitor looks even better than it is today which is very promising. The management and support teams at LogicMonitor are always helpful

    Set up is super easy. Just stand up a small Linux or Windows server to act as a collector. There are no agents to install on monitored devices and all you need is SNMP or WMI access. When creating dashboards, all you have to do is find the widget on the device you want to show up and choose the menu option to add it.

    Cisco UCSM Support has been very quick to reply and address our concerns, issues, and questions. We have found that Cisco's documentation is clear and concise and fairly easy to find. With Cisco support's help, we are able to quickly and safely meet the demands of our end-users, consistently.

    The sales team support we received was top notch. They worked hand in hand to make sure the product met all expectations. So far we have not really had to work with support that much; we have worked with setup team after purchase to deploy product fully. No issues so far and we are four weeks in.

    The Implementation team kept us on track even when we didn't have time. They made up for our lack of focus at times and boiled everything down to simple tasks which enabled a quick deployment and an easy transition to regularly using the tool. They also kept us in a post-implementation for a while after which ensured we have multiple support options after go-live

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco

    I think UCS Manager would be able very comparable to other vendors offerings when it comes to server configuration. I think Cisco did a good job in giving you full access to many options that you might not see with Dell or HPE. Every manufacturer would need a similar tool to control their server environment, but I think what Cisco has built into their Manager is a little better than others I've used. You can just see and change so many settings. I would say that is also a bit of a negative by a little bit because sometimes it is hard to dig in and find what you need to change and often might need to reach out to TAC or take a training course to understand all of the interface.

    Again, I really want to say how much I like the customization options with LogicMonitor when compared to previous solutions I've worked with. Also want to call out the fact that the deployment and configuration in new managed environments take less of our team's time to implement.

    LogicMonitor isn't going to be the cheapest solution out there but I do think it is the best. Also, the support is amazing where as if you were to use some free opensource tool have fun waiting for the developer to get off work to support his side project. Worth every penny.

    Haven't really used it but our initial onboarding PS was disappointing. Felt like we were being told what we needed to cover as opposed to what we wanted to cover. In addition, we were pushed into using the PS in tight time frames and we were not ready to do so.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco

    • The positive is I was able to consolidate my small server infrastructure from 3 racks to one rack giving me space back and much power savings
    • The negative would be it could feel a little daunting to manage as there are many tabs and pieces to the interface.

    LogicMonitor

    • It has definitely provided value in catching metrics on all machines.
    • It is great to have one place to go to quickly find metrics on any machine in our enterprise.
    • Showing longer term trending is very helpful and has replaced some home-grown reporting that we previously had to maintain to have that functionality.
