A good network monitoring tool performs three basic jobs: monitor how things are going, alert administrators when things go wrong, and automatically correct problems whenever possible. Depending on the size of your network infrastructure, there are different monitoring tools available. Some enterprise-level management products available are the following:

  • Computer Associates Unicenter
  • HP OpenView
  • IBM Tivoli
  • Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM)
Other suites available in this category are as follows:
