Tivoli, Openview, Unicenter, ipmonitor, mrtg, nagios?

There are many network monitoring options but each option has its
pitfalls.  I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that any software
Computer Associates publishes is designed for the criminally insane.
However, there 'has' to be something that offers more visibility into a
major WAN than MRTG/RRDTOOL.  

Intermapper  http://www.intermapper.com 

You can create charts showing realtime bandwith usage on each of your
routers.  I also use it to check bandwidth on my web servers.  With a
glance, you can tell everything is "OK", "abnormal", etc.

No IDS, but it is great as a enhancement/replacement for
mrtg/rrdtool/nagios.  ( I run all three) 

No affiliation w/ intermapper
just a happy customer for ~6 years

Let's face it, there's no Hollow Earth, no robots, and
no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense.  I tried it.  Only tinfoil works.
