PA Server Monitor makes it easy to monitor a wide variety of products. We monitor Windows servers, Linux servers, switches, temperature and humidity sensors, VPN devices, and more. It provides critical visibility into everything from cpu, memory, disk space and other performance metrics to important logs from all of the devices mentioned. PA Server Monitor was easy to set up and provides a wealth of information with minimal effort. It was very easy to integrate into our current environment offering multiple ways to be alerted about issues.

Drawbacks:

PA Server Monitor is a great product but for some devices such as the temperature and humidity monitor we use, we have to manually set up the devic... Read more

It was great to monitor whole bunch of devices on dozen locations, on desktop, mobile, web, mail, SMS ... Many monitors, a lot of options. Windows, Linux, VMWare, built-in server monitoring (like iLO for HP servers). I did not founf anything we was unable to monitor. We have built own temperature sensor and use it with Power Admin to monitor temperature in server rooms ... just great

Drawbacks:

The alerts are where WhatsUpGold really shines. They are all fully customizable and once they're setup to your specifications they work like a dream. A majority of the time we will know when something on the network goes down before our users even notice the problem!

Drawbacks:

This product can do so many different things it becomes a little overwhelming. Once alerts are setup they work great, but the configuration process... Read more

We mainly benefit from the alerts system that will notify all specified employees via text/email whenever a part of our network goes down. Typicall... Read more

It fits exactly what we need it to do. Monitor our devices and send us alerts when there is an issue. The schematic is also very helpful because we have it broken down into locations and grouped together to make things easier to use. It is also very helpful to put in all the information we have into the details of the device so that its all in one place. It helps us stay organized!

Drawbacks:

The set up was atrocious. We had to run a scan like 6 times to find everything. Eventually I had to add things in one by one which took forever. It... Read more

After everything was set up, we have had almost no issues. The customer support is great and the reps are great. The software has free updates whic... Read more

We use it to monitor in real time if a site is up or down. Then escalate to helpdesk to try to remotely resolve the issue. If they cannot, then we will make a truck roll to the site with replacement equipment.

Drawbacks:

The downside to it is the occasional false alarms. Sometimes the software would send out saying that it was down when in fact it was responding t... Read more

The ease of adding a device, and getting monitors configured with alerts is what like best. To go from no monitoring to getting a text/email when something goes wrong is relatively easy with this product. The ease of putting specific graph items on a page (dashboard) is also very useful.

Drawbacks:

The biggest problem with this product is the performance/capacity of the product to generate graphs. Using java to fetch data from the database to ... Read more
