I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with LanSpy Banwidth Monitor Pro. The application seems to be a decent Windows based MRTG replacement with 95th percentile calculations. If anyone has used or evaluted this product for a data center environment, I'd highly appreciate your thoughts. The trial version of the program is limited to 5 ports, which is pretty weak.
Beyond this specific application, I'm also open to suggestions for any sort of Windows based MRTG replacement, especially one the generates reports using ASP or ColdFusion, as I'm fairly well versed in both of these lanagues and this would make customization very easy.
Please note, I'm not looking for an entire "data center management" product like NOCWizard. We already have a custom developed backend system ... I am really just trying to find a more robust MRTG-ish application that gives me the ability to caluclate 95th percentile and actual data transfered for a specific date range, preferablly in a Windows based package. For what it's worth, the system could even be *Nix based as long as I could develop some sort of web service and interact with the system using CFHTTP or MSXML to get the data I need.
Price wise, I'm looking to spend $500 - $1000 get this system up and running. I've already dropped about $100 on a CF based SNMP component and tried to completely roll my own MRTG system, but the ColdFusion graphing sucks for X,Y type scatter graphs and the componet I purchased was a little flakey.
On a somewhat related note, does anyone know what is required to get RTG up and running. Could RTG concievable run under a shared Linux account or a VPS? I'd need to poll about 200 ports to start off with.
