Overall Satisfaction with ManageEngine OpManager

I used to use SolarWinds products for years but it got to be too expensive for renewals and too complicated to setup and configure. I made the switch to ManageEngine OpManager years ago and never looked back. I am always able to get all of the server and network monitoring configured in less than an hour with ManageEngine without having to reach out to any sort of support. Patching/updating OpManager is also a lot simpler than SolarWinds. It does a lot of stuff for the price but ManageEngine is starting to get bad about breaking out some of the monitoring features and charging for them as add-ons. Overall a great product that I would recommend to anyone!
  • Does great with real-time server monitoring using ping/WMI.
  • Great for viewing switch port status in real time.
  • Gives you an overall dashboard for your network and server stuff in one place.
  • It would be good if they would update more often. Upgrade history seems to be slowing on new versions/features the last couple of years.
  • It is quite a bit cheaper than SolarWinds competing solutions and offers an overall better value.
The other competing products in functionality stack up pretty good but pricing is always a lot higher for what you get with the other solutions for small/medium sized companies use.
This product is definitely suited for small to medium-sized businesses. Not sure how well the software would run in large environments (300+ servers).
