mom 2005 for workgroups the jewel

after reading this article, I gave mom a try http://www.pcpro.co.uk/realworld/68148/mom-knows-best.html
 
yes it is ms software, but it looks so handy and easy that with the ever growing pressure on ever shrinking networkstaff which don't have the time to configure and test things that you can start with this and it works for up to 10 servers (so take the most important ones)
 
what we like is that next to a problem a possible solution is added and that the alerts are quite clear and complete without much configuration
 
do  never forget the golden rule of  logging, only log what you can treat or what you have to log legally
 
the startpage  http://www.microsoft.com/mom/default.mspx
download the 120 day evaluation version  http://www.microsoft.com/Mom/workgroup/evaluation/trial/d...
 
the difference between the 10 server version and the full blown version
see for yourself with these indicative prices 
http://www.microsoft.com/mom/howtobuy/default.mspx
and you can always start by using it for all your most important servers and services

before installing the stuff, control that you have the necessary hardware
