  • Monitors the entire infrastructure 24/7, which facilitates the vision of any unknown device that wishes to enter the network
  • Send alerts immediately upon detection of a status change in network devices.
  • It allows to visualize the performance from a single console of each device, server and applications
  • It is very easy to use and implement
  • It is a very complete and versatile software, but its price can be somewhat high for small companies.
  • During the analysis of the collected data the process can be somewhat slow, so it takes more time than expected.
  • Its configuration process can be somewhat complex since it requires several configurations so having prior knowledge is helpful.

  • Reporting/dashboards.
  • Ping and service monitor.
  • Equipment discovery.
  • Could have a more friendly user interface (SLW platform is very complex in general speaking).

  • Easily discovers devices on your network.
  • Preset network monitors for common areas of interests such as uptime, space and utilization.
  • Straightforward setup.
  • The interface could be more intuitive.
  • Alerts could be less dry.
  • Rebooting the ipMonitor host seems to trigger every monitor you've selected to send an email.

  • A good place to look for an overall feel of how all systems are performing or if the alerts are configured correctly.
  • Integrations with API services such as Pager Duty as well as SMS messaging.
  • Somewhat clunky and painful to set up.
  • Not very intuitive in terms of how to configure new alerts.
  • Limitations on what can be monitored based on an agent-less configuration.

  • Really easy to setup and configure
  • No learning curve
  • Simple alerting system with no complex rules
  • It's basic at best in terms of advanced features, but it's geared towards this so that is no surprise.
  • Its also free so you can't really complain much.

  • Monitoring of server basic status items like ping, memory and CPU levels. Configuring alerts based on event log event IDs. If you don't need the advanced features of some other monitoring systems, ipMonitor is much simpler to configure and use.
  • Configuration is simple and easy, menus are clear and simple to follow. Alerting is straightforward to configure also.
  • Switched to Idera because of a need in the department for more advanced features such as triggering scripts for certain events. The downside is it is much more complex to configure and use.

  • ipMonitor does a great job of measuring bandwidth usage and delivering a long term 'picture' of usage
  • ipMonitor has an exceptional interface that is easy to use and simple to navigate

  • Network monitoring. Can monitor network flow with great detail and accuracy.
  • Vendor agnostic monitor and log analysis. It works with all of our vendors and I can use a single application to monitor my network instead of three separate pieces.
  • Log file capture and analysis is quick and accurate.
  • Auto capture of devices across the network is time consuming
  • Setting up rules and permissions
  • Distributed roles and responsibilities can be a little too confined to a determined box

  • The default dashboard is well designed and simple to use. It shows what is needed at-a-glance.
  • The setup of new servers is simple and I like the process explorer functionality
  • "Top 10" lists are useful
  • I find some of the reporting visualizations confusing when drilling down to devices and seeing availability and response times.
