The HP OpenView family of products provides the richest portfolio of Information Technology (IT) management solutions in the industry. HP OpenView Network Node Manager is the cornerstone of the HP OpenView Solutions Portfolio and the foundation upon which hundreds of third-party solutions have been built, enabling a sweeping and growing repertoire of tools to meet diverse integrated network and system management needs.

Network Node Manager's distributed discovery and monitoring approach lets you locate processing closer to the local domains of your environment. By deploying multiple copies of Network Node Manager, you can manage your enterprise IT environment through collection stations and management stations. Both collection and management stations run Network Node Manager or Entry Network Node Manager, which provide you with a scaleable solution adaptable to unique network and organization needs. It optimizes network use by reducing the volume of data flowing to central management stations for processing, allowing available network capacity and processing power to be channeled to business information needs.

Network Node Manager delivers unconstrained visibility of your network for successful monitoring and control of your computing environment. As the market leader, Network Node Manager offers a winning strategy for managing distributed multi-vendor networks and systems, from work-groups and management domains to the complete enterprise. It is designed to handle the vast array of technologies, applications, and equipment used to build the networks of today and the future: local, regional, or global. You conserve network assets and use all your resources to their best advantage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has a limit on the number of systems that can be managed but it is proactive in heading off failures. Valuable Features:The intelligent agents which allows for detailed instruction sets to be deployed to systems.Improvements to My Organization:It is proactive in heading off failures that would be catastrophic to the business.Room for Improvement:Any product can be improved, regular "enhancement requests" are a part of the way the product is improved.Use of Solution:I've used it since it was released by HP. I first installed it in 2003-4 to do a gap analysis between 4 products.Deployment Issues:Some, but all are workable.Stability Issues:Mostly with the WMI and the SQL database (Microsoft issues).Scalability Issues:It has a limit, like any product, on the numbers of systems that can be managed.Customer Service:Average, but a lot depends on the level of support agreement and the responses of the sales representative who sold the product.Technical Support:Average, as HP has many methods of disseminating technical information. Again, it all depends on the level of support agreement a customer has; Regular or Premium, and some companies offer additional support matrices.Previous Solutions:I have used a number including shell scripts to monitor things. Most companies want something "out of the box" instead of unsupported products.Initial Setup:They have decent documentation on the process.Implementation Team:All of the above at some point in my career.ROI:If a system or application goes down, and any lag time occurs, depending on how much income is generated or lost as a result, along with proactively monitoring various aspects of an environment the return on the cost is minimal.Cost and Licensing Advice:Depends on how detailed you develop it and how many systems it is deployed on. I have seen A-Z. Small environments with a few systems and policies takes less, larger ones, more. The product does take considerable care and feeding especially in the later case.Other Solutions Considered:Generally, I am handed a deployment as a consultant, many times it has been as a result of a company wanting more from a monitoring solution. I have seen it replace many others, but, on the other hand, I have seen it replaced. It generally boils down to a number of factors starting with cost funneling down to the technical expertise of those who deploy and maintain OMW, NNM or OMU/L. Cheaper and easier though do not equate to better in my experience.Other Advice:Have someone who is skilled and who has experience implement and maintain it. It generally takes two to three years to become proficient with all the nuances of the product line, just being a good technician and taking all the prescribed classes are not qualifications for installing and maintaining the product. I have watched scores of those who did that wash out.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It consumes too many servers for installation but the ​Network Node Manager is good. Valuable Features:Network Node Manager is good and so is Operations Manager, although they are a bit archaic now. Also valuable are the RTSM Agent, agent-less monitoring, SPI, and integrations.Room for Improvement:Lots. Consumes too many servers for installation. Why separate products for agent/agentless, licensing simplification.Use of Solution:I've used it for eight years.Deployment Issues:BSM /OMi is not stable.Stability Issues:Yes. BSM/OMi is not stable. It takes time for event dashboard to refresh.Scalability Issues:It needs a lot of CPU/memory anyway.Implementation Team:We are MSP.Other Solutions Considered:We also looked at BMC.Other Advice:Too many products, so be careful what you want to implement.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We have a Strategic Partnership with HP.
