NetCrunch is an on-premise network monitoring, alerting and reporting solution suitable for businesses of all sizes across various industry sectors. The solution helps businesses remotely visualize their system performance and monitor network services, bandwidth utilization, switches, routers and traffic flow. 

Once deployed successfully, NetCrunch automatically gathers every network device’s information and generates layer 1 and layer 2 maps displaying the connection between various devices connected to the main network.

Pros

NetCrunch software has facilitated our everyday administration of the network and IT systems while improving the security of our infrastructure. It also streamlined control over our IT assets and software.

Cons

I like the simplicity of the programe most. It really helps everyday network monitoring by error management (by collecting and alerting events from Windows Event Log), syslog messages, and SNMP trap.

NetCrunch solution has everything we needed to monitor our environment and way more than we ever expected. Support/Professional services team is great and able to walk us through setup as well as give pointers on best possible way to setup and monitor our environment from our servers to our network infrastructure. Would definitely recommend this solution to anyone looking to discover everything and anything going on in your environment!

Pros

Ease of use, availability of options for monitoring

Cons

Overwhelming at first due to all options but support team was able to simplify everything for us.

First experienced NetCrunch at a user conference where a presenter done a presentation on it. I was highly impressed by the functionality and spoke with him after to get more details. The ability to auto run scripts and auto restart services if they stop have lowered support time as well as increased up time.

I am very pleased with support as they reply back very promptly with suggestions to address any issue we've had.

Pros

Once set up its a set it and forget it. It sends email alerts as well as when they clear.

Cons

Can be pretty intense setting up but that's because its so highly customization.

We manage ~12 NetCrunch servers on various networks ranging from 100 to 1000 devices in all sorts of configurations. Once configured NetCrucnh is by far the best NMS for the price. That said, getting it tuned just right will take some time. It has many built-in monitoring packs and can be expanded by importing MIBs or even writing your own custom monitoring packs.

CONS: Unfortunately we have been plagued with issues when updating the past few releases which caused us to lose our config/Atlas for most servers. Adrem support has been adequate however in most cases we were forced to build everything back up again which is obviously less than ideal.

In our search for an economical monitoring solution, we came across NetCrunch. By far, it was the easiest platform to get up, running, and monitor information from with very little initial configuration.

As we've grown with the platform, we've through the customizations specific to our environment making the logged information even more valuable. The depth of customization can be staggering once you realize how much power is really under the hood.

AdRem has not stopped moving the product forward. Early on, I remember product updates occurring about every month - correcting issues and adding features. This continues to this day but at a slightly slower pace, a sign of a maturing product.

So far, loving the product. Easy to get in to and use. Powerful enough to let us get down and dirty homing in on any specific metrics we want and/or need.

Even with this excellent tool your own resources and time spent working with NetCrunch determine the level of your success. I have been using NetCrunch since around year 2000 in all companies I have worked - found it searching the Internet for monitoring tool and we've been together since :) Imagination and technical knowledge set the limits what you can do with it. With the latest major addition GrafCrunch visualization you can also get step closer to your business people and offer top level dashboards or perhaps in industrial sector make visual monitors of your factory automation. Anything is possible!

Pros

It does not much limit what you can do - your skills set the boundaries. Its development stays in speed with what you expect of such tools. Cost effective - I am using the Premium version

Cons

Perhaps some improvement on the NetCrunch server side needed - to get its own management module for that purpose

Advice to Others

As I said earlier - when you invest in the license of this product, be sure to invest personnel resources and time as well. NetCrunch is not an AI product :)

I have been using NMS products for many years, Adrem Netchrunch is head and shoulders above all the others that I have experienced. The power and ease of use are well balanced. I am able to accomplish all of the usual management tasks and many things I was not able to do with other, less sophisticated products. I am very pleased management console. It is easy to navigate and intuitive to use. WE have been able to manage and monitor devices on our distributed network, across many locations with out any issues. The flexible notifications have alerted us when problems are occurring and we have been able to either prevent or recover from outages. Our users are very pleased with the improved and timely support they are receiving since we started using Netchrunch.

I use it to monitor approximately 40 servers, a mix of Windows, Linux and VMware.
It send me an email if a node its not responding, low on free disk or services that don't respond.

There were a server that tomcat crashed regularly. Waiting for a patch, I've set Netcrunch to check the service. If its down, it restart it. If after 3 minutes its still down it send me an email. Really great!

I monitor around 150 switches too, for node down, service down and statistics, the "Top Charts" is really cool!

Overall its a really great software, I have the client on my workstation which is always opened! :)

Eric.

Pros

It monitor services, it can even check a non-standard ports and execute scripts on alarms!

Cons

I cannot change the SSH port to execute scripts for a Macintosh server, I have only 1 but it would be cool.
But it can be changed for Linux servers.

We've been customers of Adrem for quite a few years now. This monitoring systems is one of the best we tested for both ease of use and overall capabilities. We tested a number of other systems but none of them had the same capabilities and if they did it was at an extra charge. Adrem got it right with their NetCrunch. I highly recommend it.

Pros

Ease of use and capabilities.

Very intuitive setup right out of the box. The software automatically detects if it's installed in a virtualized environment and the autodiscovery almost immediately gives you an overview of your entire network. Most machines and devices are categorized on the spot, so you don't even have to remember which machines run Windows, Mac or BSD.

For fine-tuning, the software can be customized quite extensively, from alerts to which protocols NetCrunch monitors and at which intervals. Alerting can be done by SMS, email, sound, action or many different ways, so if you're outside the office and have SLA in mind, it's definitely worth the investment.

Pros

Extensive alerts, value for the price

Cons

Nothing so far

Advice to Others

Much better investment than other similar pieces of software we had under consideration.

We maintain a company with 4 separate locations, 400 PCs, 25 servers, VOIP phones, and all different types of routers, switches, and access points. NetCrunch can handle everything. It also has the ability to import MIB packs for those that are not natively supported. The reports we get from it are very valuable and gives us an insight on what's really going on. Would definitely recommend this product to anyone that wants to keep an eye on a large infrastructure.

Cons

I wish the monitoring time could be less than 1 minute. It is nice to know about a problem as instantly as possible. Many times, the end users report to us before we get the NetCrunch alert.

As their knowledge of NetCrunch's incredible capabilities grows, they keep getting it to do more and more.
