IT administrators need to stay on top of the events that happen in their network for proactive monitoring. An intuitive network monitoring tool that assists them in these operations is essential for this, especially for enterprise networks with thousands of devices and events. Zabbix is an open source tool that covers the basics of network monitoring, but the need for a Zabbix replacement is evident due to the amount of work needed to setup monitoring with it.
ManageEngine OpManager delivers advanced monitors for network devices, servers, storage devices, and virtual devices. It complements this with automation and AI, and the most important part- deploys quickly and offers the best protection to your network from the get go.
