Overall rating

Benefits:

Very easy to setup and use. Most products are overly complex and you don't use all/any of the features, but that is not the case with Corner Bowl. Price was also very good. Support response is excellent!

Drawbacks:

Tough to get WMI work with machines that are NAT'd, sometimes requiring a local administrator account for multiple machines can be difficult.

In sum:

Very easy to use at a great price with good support. Weekly reports give us a good idea of what is going on with the machines in the system and it hits all of the auditors check boxes.

Benefits:

After ditching Microsofts scom because of its complexity. We were looking for a easy to use software with support for basic functions we wanted to monitor. Servermanager does tick all The boxes for us. Easy to use ready templates for all basic monitoring needs. Customizable for more advanced monitoring and logging.

Drawbacks:

The oldfashioned gui. The new tabs opening everytime you edit a setting is Hard to navigate.

In sum:

Easy to use. Doesnt need a fulltime technician to run it.

Overall rating

Benefits:

This software had a little learning curve for me, but with the help of the development team, we were up and going in no time flat, easy to add in devices, and it just plain works. Never any production down incidents as we have had with others. The support is fantastic

Drawbacks:

Missing a couple of reporting features we would like, but overall, nothing to complain about and no problem children with Corner Bowl.

In sum:

CornerBowl allows us to leave our eyes on other issues, and it tells us when we need to look at problems. Overall, this is the "ONLY" monitoring solution you need. We have 3 instances doing very different work for us and love it.

Benefits:

Server Manager is an inexpensive, easy way to pull back the logs from my servers that are in multiple locations to store them for PCI compliance. Being able to filter and email certain information is a big help administering my servers.

Drawbacks:

About the only Con I have is that sometime it can be a little difficult to set up a filter, especially when you are only making changes every now and then.

In sum:

I've been very happy with the software and anytime I've needed help there support has quickly helped me out. It helps me meet the PCI Requirements I need to fulfill monitoring my servers.

Benefits:

The reports of the audits are very straight to the point. The software unlike SPLUNK is extremely easy to setup and manage, which cuts time down while running audits.

Drawbacks:

Nothing so far. We love the software, if there were cons we would not have considered the software.

Benefits:

The best thing about this software is the daily reports that rollup warnings and errors from all of our Windows Servers into one, easy-to-scan email.

Drawbacks:

It's sometimes a little awkward to manage templates, reports, schedules, etc. in the user interface.

Overall rating

Benefits:

We probably only use a fraction of the functionality, but that speaks to the large feature set. It's a product composed of many feature groups. Each time we have new monitoring requirement for Windows servers, we've found a solution via Cornerbowl. We initially used it to monitor services, moved into event log monitoring, syslog files, website uptime monitoring, and now also use it for IISlogs and text log files.

Drawbacks:

For some functionality, there is a learning curve, but since the developer is readily available for assistance, we've been able to configure the desired functionality, or the developer has made changes to the product to accommodate our needs.

In sum:

Feature packed, personalized and prompt customer support, value pricing, all adds up to a great product.

Benefits:

Ease of setup and configuration is smooth. User interface is simple to navigate and adjust settings as needed.

Drawbacks:

Software struggles when more than 200 end devices are added. Despite adding additional CPU/memory the software will lag when making configuration changes and sometimes enter a state of "not responding"

Overall rating

Benefits:

I have used this software for many years . Basically, I get a consolidated report every morning with event log errors and warnings from all my servers. I filter out informational events and many of the "noise" events that are inconsequential. I get a separate report of login anomalies. Very helpful to keep a close eye on the pulse of the server environment.

Drawbacks:

Once you understand how to use the admin interface, it is easy to use, but it took a little effort to understand.

In sum:

Anytime I have had to contact Cornerbowl they were prompt and able to assist.
