RE: What wre you using for network administration?

I think that all depends on what you are using it for. A re you making
copies of configs, updating IOS, etc.? Cisco works is probably the
best. Are you looking for up / down ? there are a lot of tools out
there for that. Checkout Solarwinds. They have some good integration
with Cisco gear

I'm working on getting CiscoWorks set up and although it has its
advantage there are a number of, ah, frustrations. Does anyone have a
suggestion for a commercial replacement for a medium sized network of 75
to 250 network nodes?

Thanks

Jim

RE: What wre you using for network administration?

We use Numara network Monitor. I can monitor up and down (ping tool), ports
as well as NT services (Microsoft shop). It can email me or use its built in
modem to txt me an alert via a POTS line. Its really for systems not Network
Hardware.

For SNMP port monitoring and Fiber backbone monitoring(network Hardware) , I
tested "what's up gold" and found it to be intuitive and useful. May try to
get it purchased this year.
