We are really proud to receive the highest marks from MSExchange.org. Jean-Peter Bruzzese, Exchange MVP has conducted a product review and tested the latest version of GSX Monitor & Analyzer from the installation to the performance of our solutions.
He notes “I’ve been watching GSX Monitor & GSX Analyzer for several years now and I’ve always liked the product. I’m a sucker for colorful, at-a-glance monitoring solutions that come with a lot more under the hood and GSX has that, and they keep adding to it…. Solid all around, easy to install, configure and use, combined with robust analysis tools. Thumbs up!”
What he really likes the most is the multi-platform functionality, as GSX Monitor and Analyzer allows you to keep tabs on Exchange, BlackBerry Enterprise, SharePoint, and IBM Lotus Domino servers. He also praises our agent-less operation, which leaves no impact on existing servers and “really cuts back on the installation and configuration needed to begin the monitoring process.”
Also cited was GSX Analyzer’s ability to provide administrators with a deeper level of insight. “Through extensive analysis and reporting you can design and plan migrations better, determine better management solutions, come up with more accurate SLA reporting and ultimately baseline and monitor the health of your collaboration environment.”
One of the best new features of v10.3 is its monitoring of Unified Messaging servers, including services like the Exchange Speech Engine. You can also new is the ability to monitor and report Outlook Anywhere connectivity. “Much like UM, where we expect to see this being utilized even more so with Exchange 2013, we should expect to see more Outlook Anywhere connectivity as well, so it’s nice to see that GSX is already focused on OA monitoring and reporting.”
Other plusses highlighted were the ability to monitor URLs, and the ability to configure alerts based on pre-defined Key Performance Indicators or PKI’s. “It’s miserable when you run out of disk space on an Exchange server simply because you were so busy running around putting out fires that you forgot to check until too late. With a monitoring solution like this you can avoid those issues.”
