    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

    The "free" version really isn't very useful so even small shops have to purchase the software, unlike some of their other products. With a 30-day free trial, it's hard to separate what you get with which license. However, for a smaller shop, this is a way to start monitoring logs for a reasonable price. I'm not sure if large shops would get caught up with too much complexity.

    Pros

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise

    • HP Systems Insight Manager is very good at scanning for devices and adding them for monitoring is almost effortless.
    • HP Systems Insight Manager is very good at detecting most HP hardware and integrating with local management software.

    • Monitors bad passwords - user errors or hacking
    • Monitors if acccounts are being accessed outside normal hours
    • Automated repors so that I don't have to go look at the dashboard every day.

    Cons

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise

    • I think some of the areas that HP Systems Insight Manager can improve is non HP hardware.
    • This software also sometimes struggles handling larger environments.
    • This software also has issues managing environments that aren't set up perfectly.

    • For reports, the selection of date and time range is not easy to use. Request to make it simple.
    • Require email alert when archived database loading is completed (in incases where historic reports need to be generated)

      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

      Support works with you to help set it up and to resolve any problems. I like that they do respond to email, chat, and phone calls, rather than ignoring some of the channels as some companies do.

      Alternatives Considered

      Hewlett Packard Enterprise

      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.

      ManageEngine ADAudit is definitely focused and targets Active Directory very well. When monitoring and researching changes to our AD setup, ManageEngine ADAudit Plus is the first place we look to for details and resolution. The other tools mentioned are excellent in what they do overall, but ADAudit Plus is what we have come to prefer for keeping track of changes in our AD environment.

      Return on Investment

      Hewlett Packard Enterprise

      • 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.

      • Reduced our log investigation time by at LEAST tenfold.
      • Integrated with our SIEM via syslog server for even deeper reporting.
      • Helps track anomalous activity with ease.
      • Provides verification of our security efforts.
