HP Openview really helped us when we migrated our old SAP Data from IBM Platform to OpenText.

This software is suited for a smaller organization with a small datacenter that uses mainly HP hardware. Once the environment gets larger it would pay to move to some of their paid for products

For basic functions it's very easy to set up and use. However, for more advanced functions it takes a lot of time to figure out its quirks

Some of the other products I use for system management are HP SiteScope and SolarWinds Orion NPM and APM. SiteScope is another good HP product but it isn't very cost effective to use for general system management. It's good for performing complex alerting and monitoring. SolarWinds makes a great product but it is better geared for gathering statistics and performance data real-time and historically. Again the cost of this product makes it ineffective for general system monitoring.

  • Since this software is free if you buy HP hardware the cost is nothing which is nice for cash strapped businesses.
  • This software has a somewhat difficult time handling large environments where systems are not configured perfectly for this software.
  • I would always recommend having multiples of this software installed for redundancy because generally unless it and the environment is properly configured it can require maintenance.
