Hey ladies & gents,

I would be very curious to find out what's your take on network device monitoring software.

I've recently been tasked with looking deeper into commercial solutions to monitor large estates of IP telephony and supporting data switches & / or routers.

Device stats (SNMP) along with QoS (IP SLA) measurements and traffic analysis (NetFlow) is a big deal so I'm wondering is there any single piece of software out there that can do these things?

I've heard good things about PRTG. Then again I've also been told about & came across several others like WhatsUP Gold, SolarWinds, HP OpenView etc. Anybody know which would the better deal?

I can't say I've done too much monitoring etc. (have some experience with some proprietary solutions that aren't necesarily SNMP bound) so I appreciate any input.

Thank you for taking the time to read into this :)
