Usable dashboards, good mapping, and has solid technical support

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for network monitoring, SNMP, WMI, queries against services, and occasionally for certain devices that have stopped, we would restart services.

Pros and Cons

  • "I like the mapping that you could do and the dashboards were very pretty."
  • "The security needs improvement, which is why we are moving away from Solar Winds. We have security concerns."

What other advice do I have?

In summary, it's a good solution but it's expensive. I would rate SolarWinds Network Device Monitor an eight out of ten.

Proactively warns us about infrastructure outages, but event correlation needs to be improved

What is our primary use case?

We use this product to monitor our infrastructure, detect outages, and monitor performance.

Pros and Cons

  • "This product proactively tells us about issues before the users notice."
  • "Integration with different tools, such as ServiceNow and Excel, can be improved."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this tool is to have a dedicated resource for it. It has to be maintained, and it takes time and resources to get the best out of it. Overall, this is a good product. That said, no solution is perfect. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
