HP IMC is used for our network monitoring and as a configuration backup solution in our environment. Here we are using multiple instances of HP IMC for different locations as a monitoring and back up solution.
  • Monitoring works very well
  • Configuration backup works
  • Integration to third party tool is good
  • User interface can be made very friendly
  • Nothing I could think of apart from User interface
Its very good and easy to do custom polling by importing MIB files where we had challenges to do out of box monitoring.
Integration is easy.

HP IMC is being used to monitor our network infrastructure across our entire organization. This product helps us monitor the network proactively and also servers as a configuration back up tool that comes in handy when a network switch fails. HP IMC is vendor agnostic and provides some great features to keep taps on the network.
  • Stores equipment configurations to easily restore.
  • Quick notification of equipment status across the network
  • Trending information helps keep us proactive on possible issues.
  • Visibility of both LAN and WiFi network components.
HPE IMC is well suited for network environments that need to support multi vendor equipment. It has the capability to gather full status information regardless of equipment brand. It may not be well suited for WiFi stats monitoring although this may change in the near future.

  • HPE IMC is one of several tools we use to to ensure we meet our SLA with our customers.
HPM IMC is simpler to use. Solarwinds is too complicated to setup.
We've only had to engage support when it's time to upgrade. So far they have been responsive to our needs.

Basic deployment was very straight forward, we chose to enhance our deployment by taking advantage of the topology features to import and populate maps that illustrate some 500 comms room locations.
  • Multivendor flexibility.
  • Topology map features.
  • Backup configurations.
  • Licensing model is not good.
In a small network or a large network, this product can be helpful. It can manage and monitor all devices for you.

  • IMC has so many aspects that in some ways we were learning the best way to use it as we deployed it.
Nothing bad to say about the overall support.

We use IMC for the whole organization to monitor all the HP, Aruba, H3C, 3com and even Cisco devices. Is a very powerful tool to keep the network managed knowing and creating alerts with different levels of severity.
  • Different Level of Severity Alerts
  • Get traps and syslogs to evaluate any critical problem.
  • Works great with HP switches.
  • Is not fully compatible with other vendor switches
  • Last version have some bugs and installation issues.
Good for Datacenters or any LAN network with many devices. We use to monitor all the devices using SNMP and getting traps. Then using the system to generate alerts and reports. We use it 24/7 because our network is very big.

  • If you have HP switches in your network, this software is a must have, because it going to check all switches status for you.
  • Excellent for export configs and push configs to the devices.
They are fast responding when you create a support case. But they also have a forum (community) where you can find knowledge-base information that is very useful.

We use it for all our district infrastructure for campus switch networks. It takes care of our alarms, script change updates, reports and changes etc.
  • Alarm notification
  • Reporting and inventory
  • Easy GUI and very good with compatibility with other switched network
  • Easy management interface and maps
  • More Cisco switch support such as nexus
  • SNMP walker tool needs a little improvement
  • Fresh look for the Gui
It is suited best for large enterprise networks, or where you will need visibility for down up scenarios. Topology maps that are needed are well suited for large WAN environments.

Cause of the great gui and easy management can be customized to your liking. The awesome topology maps you can make easy to change make it your own design. Great support. Don't need a large database to run. Can handle multiple users at once with ease. Overall a great product recommend to anyone.
Never has any issue looking for help with HP IMC or any help with the setup any module we need.
