Good question, we do not use manageengine for NMS and I have no desire to use them either.
I tried their NMS platform last year and it was "ok", the interface just seemed a little clunky....

Setting up ManageEngine syslog was a breeze and now we get alerts based on what kind of messages
we want, it's pretty hands off, I'm sure you could fine tune it further...

But I hear that solarwinds NPM has syslog built into it, so I'm thinking of going with one product that covers
it all....

I don't have any interest in using ManageEngine as an NMS; I have a couple of tools that I use for that already.  Can you use ManageEngine's syslog without having to set it up to monitor all of your devices first?  Have you looked at the TRAP support in ManageEngine?
