Overall Satisfaction with ManageEngine OpManager

Recently we made market checkup for monitoring software and found out that ManageEngine has some unique features needed in our environment and price is a quite lower. Idea to have central place for monitoring network devices, servers and virtual vmware environment + some applications (databases, ibm mq, java apps...) lead us to that product. So we started migration from existing solution to ManageEngine.
  • responsive GUI
  • able to cover wide set vendors
  • have some unique features like rack views, business views
  • management of enterprise edition is really complex
  • lack of integration with AppManager (application monitoring)
  • not so easy to integrate with SIEM
  • single pane of glass monitoring
  • wide systems coverage (windows, linux, aix,..)
  • GUI responsiveness
  • we replaced current solution and gain big saving with some extra monitoring features included
  • negative impact is on infrastructure footprint of solution which is quite big
Main reason to select ManageEngine was price/performance ratio. Another reason was great coverage of monitoring of different technologies and modules: network devices of various vendors, network modules like NCM, NFA, support for monitoring of vmware virtualisation , citrix virtualisation , middleware monitoring including ibm mq (which is quite rarely supported) and database monitoring. Local support, and experience was also important factor.

Do you think ManageEngine OpManager delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with ManageEngine OpManager's feature set?


Did ManageEngine OpManager live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of ManageEngine OpManager go as expected?


Would you buy ManageEngine OpManager again?


Splunk Enterprise, Exabeam Fusion, SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (npm)
From our experience it is really good and easy to handle monitoring solution below 1000 nodes, enterprise edition which supports scalability is hard to manage without external support. It lucks some central repository features even between modules inside modules of same solution. If you plan to have more then one module/product integration is done but not on satisfied level so take that into account.
