ManageEngine OpManager

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

SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset

We have used it to test our SDWAN bandwidth during our initial rollout. The WAN Killer does just that, and you can see how much traffic your wan links can take. It has also been helpful in identifying open ports that we need to lock down to ensure we are achieving compliance with SOX, HIPAA, and PCI. This is a tool for network engineers, I can't see use cases for non-network related tasks.

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.

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.

SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset

SolarWinds NPM and NCM use a lot of the tools available in the toolset. This is a nice combo of the two with a little bit of IPAM thrown in. I would say the toolset is geared more toward the field engineer, that will be doing work that may sever communications to the rest of the network. That said, we keep finding new uses for it.
