Help with monitoring software

Hello,

We have a several exchange 2003 servers running on windows 2003. I was asked 
to find a monitoring software that will allow us to monitor exchange server 
(services, uptime, connitivity, logs,database,...) and windows 2003 in very 
comprehensive way for under $5K. Can any one recommend a good product? By the 
way, we have MOM but it's handled by a different group so we need something 
else.

Thanks

Why do you need something else? They can put the agents on the Exch
servers and give you access to the console.

We have used 3rd party Monitoring for 10 years + and they work fine.  That 
said, we also have been using MOM the past 2yrs,  and really this is the 
optimal way to Monitor Exchange.   We have removed the MOM agents and 
Monitor via Agentless MOM.  You'll find not much functionality is lost when 
going agentless and when MOM servers have issues you don't have to deal with 
hundreds/thousands of MOM agent errors in your Logs.

On a 5K budget you might try this.....

1).  Exchange Built-in Monitoring doesn't cost anything and will monitor 
Services and Disk space very nicely with very minimal false positives.
2).  We use Perfmon alerts to monitor SMTP queues and Alert when above a 
threshold level, again no cost.
3).   You could try What's Up, Servers Alive, IPSentry or many other 3rd 
party products to ping, monitor services, exercise ports and scrape Event 
Logs etc .

Can't help but insert a <shameless plug> for Zenprise (www.zenprise.com) - 
it goes beyond monitoring and does
real-time troubleshooting & root-cause analysis of issues related to 
availability, performance, and integrity of Exchange and the related 
eco-system (AD, DNS, network, etc.) </shameless plug>
