Do not depend solely on the opinions of other experts when trying to select the best network management software. Carry out your own research. Take into account the type of network and the networked systems you have. Do you want an agentless platform? This software will be installed on your server or workstation connected to your network. The advantage of this system is that it does not require installation on every device. At the same time, the server in which it is installed must have sufficient power to run it.

The agent based system works on the SaaS (software as a service) model. You will access most parts of the software through the web. The end-user devices store the monitoring programs or agents only. Its advantage is that you will have access to more in-depth data because the agents get greater access to the hardware systems. On the other hand, it must be installed on each device that requires monitoring. You must have the compatible operating system in each device where it is installed. Choose the type of software that best meets your network management needs.
