Overall Satisfaction with Auvik

We are an MSP and deploy Auvik across most of our clients. We also use it as one of our discovery tools for prospects. Beyond building an inventory of assets, we get device configurations and detailed information about the connections between devices. There is an alert option and we have integrated this with Slack for notifications.
  • Captures device configurations for firewalls, routers and other network devices
  • Shows detailed connections between network devices. Which ports, speeds, duplex.
  • Provides alerts when network devices go offline and when they return
  • Auvik sometimes doesn't understand connections between network devices and the maps it creates are a little crazy. You can manually help it figure things out.
  • While there are hundreds of supported devices, there could be more
  • The alert function can be overwhelming if not properly managed. Particularly when a connection is flapping up and down.
  • Network discovery
  • Documentation of network device configurations and change management
  • Troubleshooting connectivity problems
  • Alternative alerting system
  • Reduced time to troubleshoot network problems
  • Has really worked well in co-managed IT environments.
  • Auvik's new light category for small networks provided us with a real cost savings
We felt like Auvik provided much more detailed connectivity information than Traverse. In our specific environment, Auvik was less expensive than Traverse.
I really meant IT Glue's product, Network Glue. My techs were already in love with Auvik as this product was being developed. We use IT Glue for documentation and we might choose different if we had to make the decision today.
We've used What's Up Gold in the past and it was great as a monitoring product. I'm sure they have continued to develop more capabilities, but Auvik was stronger to us when focused on primarily network devices.

Auvik works great for discovering a network, listing assets, documenting device connectivity details, and capturing configurations of many common network devices. It is more suited for larger or complex networks. It is probably overkill for small, flat networks with only a handful of network devices. We are very satisfied with their support.
