Using NPM to monitor servers and network devices

th3cap3

We recently switched from using a monitoring tool called Spectrum to monitor the various servers in our environment to a product called ServerVantage from Compuware. The new server monitoring tool is quite robust but we found it had a few short comings when it came to monitoring some older version of AIX (unsupported versions and RPC issues). So we ended up putting those servers into Solarwinds Orion for basic monitoring of CPU, MEM, HDD, UP/DOWN, etc... We also use Orion to monitor our network devices and URL health (through Software and Application Monitoring). I find the Solarwinds tools to be extremely easy to use and robust in features, glad I had a chance to work with these tools and would highly recommend them to my fellow geeks.
