Installation Wizard Cont. As you can see form the Installation Wizard, it has found my local workstation and added it to device list. The Wizard was very easy to use and not complicated.
OpManager Home The OpManager home gives us an snapshot of our Network Infrastructure. The layout is easy to view and understand. It also shows us Availability of Distribution and Alarm Graphs
I really enjoyed the Maps Tab. It begins with a drop list of Infrastructure Views, Business Views and Network Views. When I click on Infrastructure Views Desktop it then shows a very nice layout of Devices. It shows a multiply graphical views for Availability, CPU, Memory.
OpManager Admin The Admin Views shows us an entire layout of the functionality of OpManage. It list all the tools and setup we need and easy to navigate around depending on location you are looking for.
One thing I have noticed is that Opmanage has some excellent features for monitoring devices and networks. You can set up to monitor:
Windows Service Monitoring
Event Log Rules
SNMP Trap Processors
You can setup Monitoring Intervals, this allows you set different time intervals for each type of device to be monitored.
The OpManage has a built in support area. Within this area you are able to access knowledge Base articles, request support among many other features.
Working with the OpManager I found it very intuitive and easy to use. They system is very powerful with a lot of functionality. I only had it set up on my local workstation, however it easily found my system and began to monitor it. The system has many functions and with a price range from $1,200 to $10,000 it would be worth its price.
