ManageEngine OpManager

This product is definitely suited for small to medium-sized businesses. Not sure how well the software would run in large environments (300+ servers).

WhatsUp Gold

Currently, the main use for WhatsUp is to monitor our broadband connections and cellular backup swings. We converted from T1's to "a less cost"/"a less reliable" connection but added the cellular to make up that 2% difference. WhatsUp monitors this via SNMP/syslog trapping to alert us when this swing happens. The imports of this we have on a 1 gig cellular limit so getting it swung back is very important. WhatsUp provides us with this quick alert.

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.

WhatsUp Gold

  • Setting up traps for exchange services has led to false positives in the past.

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.

WhatsUp Gold

For the sake of simplicity, WhatsUp Gold is better. It is cheaper and more cost-effective for what we need. I am sure it will scale up easily in the future if that growth comes.

WhatsUp Gold

  • We are able to train techs to use it quickly in our NOC.
  • Server migrations have been slow for our teams, causing confusion throughout.
  • The training classes offered are very expensive.
