ManageEngine OpManager

Great for managing infrastructure on the same LAN. Does not work to monitor Azure/AWS metrics.

Power Admin PA Server Monitor

Power Admin PA Server Monitor works great for our needs. We do however wish that it worked for Linux Operating Systems.

Cons

ManageEngine OpManager

  • Some legacy products is complicated to add.
  • They need to study about MIB files to customize certain values.
  • Network knowledge is needed to configure the SNMP on the routers and configure the server where the Opmanager will be so that it can reach all your networks.

Power Admin PA Server Monitor

  • It does have bulk settings tools to set up bulk settings for multiple devices, but to me it could be a bit easier to use. However, I ran into a snag and reached out to support and they are great.
  • It does not support Linux Operating Systems.

Alternatives Considered

ManageEngine OpManager

The other competing products in functionality stack up pretty good but pricing is always a lot higher for what you get with the other solutions for small/medium sized companies use.
Ray Koch | TrustRadius Reviewer

Power Admin PA Server Monitor

We tried some open source solutions. But, they were much more difficult to set up and maintain. PA is easy to use "out of the box". We looked at other paid solutions also, but they were cost prohibitive, since we are a small institution.

Power Admin PA Server Monitor

  • It has decreased our critical services downtime, because we are able to VPN in and fix issues as soon as Power Admin alerts us of an issue. ROI has been excellent.
  • It allows us to catch issues before they become critical by alerting us on errors that show up in our Event Logs.
