Vendor: LogicMonitor

Cost: Starts at $20 per host with volume discounts; five host minimum

LogicMonitor is designed to give IT managers a consolidated view of their switches, routers, firewalls, servers, storage arrays and applications via a single Web portal. The service uses pre-defined alert thresholds to warn of data center issues, but admins can tune the thresholds to prevent being overwhelmed by false alarms. By entering a device hostname or IP address, LogicMonitor automatically starts monitoring the device, eliminating the need for IT staff to write scripts.
