A network monitoring platform with a useful reporting feature, but permission-based options could be better

What is our primary use case?

It's basically used for network monitoring. It lets you know what's happening on a network at all times. For example, it lets you know if there's an intrusion or anything like that. I know you typically have a firewall to deal with that, but sometimes you'll find certain solutions that show that there's plenty of activity happening on this port or this IP,

Pros and Cons

  • "Reporting on NetCrunch is pretty good. It's very similar to SolarWinds. It's just a different interface. The majority of everything there was beneficial."
  • "I didn't care for the role-based, permission-based options, which were not the best."

What other advice do I have?

I would tell potential users that it's great for the SMB market. I'm not sure about the enterprise market because I haven't tested it on a larger scale. For a small company looking to monitor a couple of sites, a couple of network devices, and a couple of servers, it'll definitely fit the bill. On a scale from one to ten, I would give NetCrunch a seven.
