NetVizura NetFlow Analyzer

The capacity planning was a big help in our company as we grew the number of connected locations. Grow or die is pretty much the business model of today but that growth is only as good as the network it travels on. Being able to recommend appropriate network requirements is a big deal in our line of business.

Progress WhatsUp Gold

[Progress WhatsUp Gold (formerly Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold)] is good for what it is. An inexpensive but accurate monitor for alerting on systems and services. However, it is time consuming to configure, The GUI leaves a lot to be desired and the formatting for txt alerts stinks (I just use it now as an alert to check my email to view the actual alert.)

Pros

NetVizura NetFlow Analyzer

  • Ease of use
Milos Prastalo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Progress WhatsUp Gold

  • Monitoring the connection; performance, switching, and issues. We use a broadband connection for our primary and a cellular backup for the secondary. While we use routing protocols to make this switch and WhatsUp isn't used for Syslog monitoring. it alerts us within seconds.
  • Backup configurations and archiving. WhatsUp does this particularly well. I use it for both Cisco routers and switches.
  • The diagram feature is nice. Though I don't use it as much because of the size of our structure, it does come in handy for mapping routes of all traffic.

Cons

NetVizura NetFlow Analyzer

  • At this point, I don't have any suggestion for improvements.

Progress WhatsUp Gold

  • Navigating the new WhatsUp Gold 2018 is a bit complicated and not user-friendly. The best part about using a software is the user's ability to use it with ease.
  • You cannot click sites being monitored from Map Dashboard View. This feature was previously possible in the older version.

Progress WhatsUp Gold

Progress WhatsUp Gold (formerly Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold) is more network focused than some of the other products we looked at, which had basic capabilities but were not as strong on the reporting or programmatic resolution of issues. Progress WhatsUp Gold (formerly Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold) is cost effective compared to some of the other upmarket solutions.

Return on Investment

NetVizura NetFlow Analyzer

  • As I mentioned in a previous statement, the capacity planning was the big thing. In our line of business, speed is everything. Customers hate to be slowed down so having the appropriate network connections is a must.
  • Anomaly Detection with the threshold based alerting has made our network team more proactive in stopping things before they can really affect the company.
  • Productivity with the use of monitoring conversations and amount of used bandwidth has helped weed out the works versus the campers.

Progress WhatsUp Gold

  • Alerts IT team members when things go down after regular business hours. IT team is able to fix the issue before users arrive the next day.
  • Saves on system downtime and lost productivity
  • Remote monitoring means less staff hours spent checking for potential problems.
