    If having both Spectrum and UIM integrated - which tool to be preferred as MOM?

    That depends on what you want to monitor and the amount of alarms you'll have to deal with. That also depends on the way you want to use this MoM (only as a gateway to do automated things or as a primary interface for users). If that's primarily network oriented, I would suggest Spectrum. If that's more heterogeneous, I would consider UIM. If flash is forbidden or not usable, Spectrum is the only option for now. If you can use flash and you also have servers and want to leverage probes to enahnce the monitoring UIM is the way. Correlations are far more flexible in Spectrum than UIM to my point of view, so if you want to build many correlations, Spectrum might be easier...


    As you can see, there are pros and cons in both side, you can expose a more detailed set of use cases if you need more help!


    Hope this is helpful...
