NetCrunch 8.2 We're happy with it

about NetCrunch · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

NetCrunch makes it quick & easy to diagnose, detect & troubleshoot issues. Thanks to the layout of the physical map pinpointing the trouble areas is a snap.We first came across NetCrunch a few years back. Right away we fell in love with it. The network discovery process is very straight forward; also classifying different hardware was easy with NetCrunch.There are other monitoring servers out there, but when it comes to monitoring VMware ESXi – there’s just no equivalent. We choose to go with NetCrunch a few years back, and still think it was the right choice.
Bottom line - it worked for us, it might or might now work for you. From what it says on their webpage, it was written for a network with up to 3500 nodes - so if you are running something more complex look elsewhere, otherwise download their trial and check it out or yourself.

Easy to setup and maintain even for noobs

about NetCrunch · · Helpful Not helpful

I have been using Netcrunch since version 8. The initial setup was very simple even for somebody like me, as I’m not exactly a networking guy. The Dashboards make it easy to stay on top of the network. Being able to configure the way that we get alerted (email, sms, etc) gave us the freedom we were looking for.

Netcrunch is the best

about NetCrunch · · Helpful Not helpful

The setup is very intuitive, and quick - it all just took a few minutes, and we were done. The Dashboard layout makes it easy to manage our network. Our network is made up of a lot of Windows servers, Cisco routers, access points, and Linux machines - so it's really diverse - yet NetCrunch is able to handle it all. All in all, it's a real workhorse, we're just happy with it.
I have been using NetCrunch since version 6. The Dashboards make it easy to manage all the different devices throughout our network locations in different parts of the country, and especially recently with the new widgets. Tech support is quick, and often offers to connect remotely to assist with any configuration, and questions. It also helps that they release new updates about 4 times a year, constantly introducing new things.

Our network is made up of a lot of Cisco devices, and NetCrunch's build in Nbar support, and the ability to add widgets, and create custom maps of the different locations that we have - just make sense to go with NetCrunch. Also, the build in MiB compiler makes it easy to for us to monitor the generic devices
