performance/planning software

Hello Experts,
I realize this is a HP forum, but I am looking for expert opinions on the available Performance, Planning, Storage Management (SHARK and Nike 20 and 30), and Help Desk software. We are a SCO, HP, and AIX Unix shop, as well as, Citrix and Windows NT. I am particularly interested in your opinions regarding CA, BMC, Tivoli and HP. But please feel free to tell me about any product that you feel warrants your recommendation.

I appreciate any information you can provide. I respect your opinions.

Clara,

We went through a similar process some years ago and ended up with HP GlancePlus. We did not look at BMC but elminated CA after a really bad experience just trying to get Unicenter to work at all (I think we were basically a Beta site for them) and Tivoli was just too expensive.

Hope this helps,
Pete

If you are considering Shark, you should also consider Hitachi. Shark was the original, and Hitachi has surpassed it in performance. HP markets the Hitachi product under the HP label.

We use GlancePlus/MeasureWare. We use BMC's Best One product on the mainframe, but feel it is too expensive for our 250+ Unix servers and 450+ NT Servers.

Using the MeasreWare performance alerts is also a plus.

The shark is being set up as we speak. We recently brought in two IBM 670's and six 660's as well as the shark, and the tape storage. So there is no going back.

Re: performance/planning software

hello,

I would try getting Tivoli, but the best bet will be HP's GlancePlus. This tool have a lot of funstions which you are looking for and on a better price. you can also try getting the 'prfview' software.

Re: performance/planning software

MeasureWare/PerfView are good tools.

You might want to look at AdminUX (www.adminux.com). Runs on multiple Unix platforms, written by a Unix sys admin.
