HPE System Management Homepage

HP System management is suited in an environment that utilizes HP servers and other computer equipment. Since this software integrates with the equipment it gives the best view of "what's going on inside". It's also provided with the purchase of HP Servers and other associated HP system equipment

Watchman Monitoring

If you are in IT consulting or manage any fleet of computers, both Mac and PC (and yes Linux) - you should have this installed. It will be able to provide you the information needed to repair computers and avoid productivity loss by users.

Cons

HPE System Management Homepage

  • The interface can be slow.
  • The interface at times is very old looking.
  • The interface can get stuck from time to time.

Watchman Monitoring

  • Would like to see non-computer deployment agent - such as Synology.
  • Since it's mainly reporting, this isn't necessary improvement, but it would be good if it can receive data - so in case we can't ping a machine, maybe use Watchman as a backdoor - but that would go against it's main principles.

Return on Investment

HPE System Management Homepage

  • Since this software integrates with HP hardware it gives a clear view of system issues. This is a very positive step when trying to troubleshoot physical server issues.

Watchman Monitoring

  • I've been using it since the day it came out - there have so many times where a machine has had an error reported by Watchman that we've been able to save the client before something terrible happened.
  • The ROI is there - you can easily resell this product to your clients, or wrap it into your product offering.
