This is honestly one of my favorite products to use. It’s the most fun I have using IT software.
“Pros: Auvik is great for mapping out your networks. It’s really nice to get an overall view of your networked devices and how they all connect to each other. And it’s wonderful for troubleshooting outages and connection issues because you can see everything including the actual switch ports being used. But my absolute favorite part of Auvik is the discovery portion. You install the agent and it goes out and sees what networks it can see. And then it starts querying the devices with either the default credentials it has or the ones you put in yourself. And it starts building out your network. It shows you where everything is and guesses at the things, like unmanaged hubs, that it can’t see. And then it finds new networks and asks if you want to scan those too and you have your main office and all the branches all in one beautiful picture with different lines indicating Layer2/Layer2/VPN/Wireless and I just find it so enjoyable. It also is great for MSPs. The billing breakdown is very nice, and it’s very easy for us to have access to all our clients but then give our clients access to just their own stuff. And the notifications are easy to setup and very granular.
Cons: Honestly I have very few problems with Auvik. Sometimes it’s harder to view really large networks in an easy way. I would like better options for exporting the network map but I honestly might just not understand how to use the options I have now. I would like some more integrations but they are constantly working on that, and they have already announced IT Glue integration, so it’s a very small issue.”
