ManageEngine OpManager

If you find that instant alerts, bandwidth usage per port and connections, custom reports and central console monitoring are of use then this is the product you need for network monitoring. OpManager is a tool that gives you great monitoring and is simple to setup, gives you great options for workflow or custom monitors.

If you already have the Enterprise level licensing, you may as well use it as opposed to pay for another third-party plug-in, i.e., SolarWinds.

vCenter Operations Manager

  • Resources allocation estimates are amazing, this feature allowed us to increase density on our hosts by reclaiming RAM and CPU from over allocated VMs letting us increase the amount of VMs per host. The report was very clear and easy to understand.
  • The planing feature enabled us to gather all the info we needed to plan hardware purchases as it showed us, with our current rate of deployment, when we would reach capacity in or environment.
  • The heat maps provided excellent drill down capabilities allowing for proactively resolving potential issues.

Cons

ManageEngine OpManager

  • It would be good if they would update more often. Upgrade history seems to be slowing on new versions/features the last couple of years.
Ray Koch | TrustRadius Reviewer

vCenter Operations Manager

  • It would be nice to be able to make configuration changes either directly in vCenter Operations Manager or have it link back to the correct locations in vCenter.

Versatility and tool information.

vCenter Operations Manager

The UI is heads and shoulders above VM Turbo, much clearer and user friendly. I did not like the cost modeling used in that product.

Ray Koch | TrustRadius Reviewer
