Overall Satisfaction with Auvik

Mostly we use Auvik for monitoring, audit, backup and reporting to our other systems.
We deploy them on client environments to detect issues, bottlenecks and upgrade paths.

- Integrate Auvik reporting to our CRM and service desk to allow near instant acknowledgement from the team when critical equipment have issues.
- Deploy to new environment to understand the scope of the network so we can compare what the client tells us and what we can see.
- Config backups and monitoring
- Bandwidth monitoring
  • Visualization of the network
  • Great selection of config options
  • Flexible implementations
  • Great documentation and support
  • Performance of the visualization is a bit slow to show.
  • Some of the UI can be counter intuitive.
  • No app on IOS or Android (web performance are not great even on the latest ipad).
  • Takes a fair bit of time to set up right.
  • Quicker response to outages
  • Early detection of failing hardware
  • Load time can be a bit slow when things are super urgent
  • Experience is not great if you don't have a big screen
We already have a set tool that we use and we use Auvik to fill in the blanks and double up for backups. not a lot of tools are able to do what Auvik does, but it also goes the other way around. With network monitoring, Auvik does have more features compared to some others. While remote access features can be lacking and usually for advanced techs only.

Do you think Auvik delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Auvik's feature set?


Did Auvik live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Auvik go as expected?


Would you buy Auvik again?


Great for Monitoring, planning and maintaining an environment. It does take a fair bit of time to set up and can be very daunting for less experienced Engineers to implement or even challenging for a small internal IT to implement. But if you have an experienced L2 this tool can be modified based on what you want to achieve.
