AlertBot Website Monitoring

It is well suited for a business that wants simplistic web monitoring of their websites. It does a great job of alerting depending on how you fine-tune the timers.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

Our servers and applications must work continuously, according to the 24/7 rule. Depending on the size of our information systems infrastructure, the number of our experienced personnel in this field is not sufficient. For this reason, we take advantage of the experience SolarWinds has developed over the years, and we benefit from the workload from time to time by being informed through alerts only when there is a problem.

Pros

AlertBot Website Monitoring

  • Domain monitoring.
  • Page checking.
  • Monitor different parts.
  • SSL monitoring.
Jason Myers | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

  • SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor helps monitor the status or some of our most important applications. It has the capability of letting us know when an application goes down which helps us fix the issue faster.
  • SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor helps monitor the resources on servers. By knowing the key components of the server such as CPU, RAM, and storage, we can forecast whether we need to increase or decrease resources on any server.
  • SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor helps us by sending real time alerts when issues occur related to servers that we are monitoring.

Cons

AlertBot Website Monitoring

  • Give more granular logs.
  • Easier web GUI that's more user intuitive.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

  • The new node based licensing model makes it difficult to justify the price for nodes that only utilize a few components.
  • Script results need to be a statistic. It would be a lot more useful if we could populate a table of results, including alpha-numeric strings, boolean, etc.
  • A lot of the AppInsight components cannot be disabled. You have to either use the whole template or nothing.

I love the product and the alerts are within the millisecond, which can be the difference between life and death in some cases. As a beginner user, it was difficult getting around or add new hosts to monitor. However, after reading guides an familiarizing myself with the product, I realized how powerful and extremely useful this product. The reason I don't give a 10 is the learning curve.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor is quite easy to use and super versatile. It allows you to do just about anything you can through premade templates or through scripting. You can use an agent on the servers if you want to, or you can monitor through WMI or SNMP credentials. You can customize thresholds for alerting quickly, and you can configure alerts to be as complex or as simple as you want.

I think there was only a couple times I had to open a support case for SAM and one time they got multiple engineers on the phone to get a better idea what I was trying to monitor and was able to point me in the best direction to monitor that system.

Make sure SNMP and WMI are configured ahead of time

Alternatives Considered

AlertBot Website Monitoring

As I have reviewed previously. It offers more positive and friendly stuff when it comes to its application. It doesn't redirect visitors elsewhere and also gives updates when the website is being tampered or hacked. Even though there is a delay on updates but the good thing is, it suggest solutions to every incident.
Jason Myers | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

Solarwinds Server and Application monitor is my first choice of tools preferred for server and application infrastructure monitoring because of the following reasons - 1. Single product to offer on-prem, hosted, cloud monitoring2. Single Product to offer Server, Database and Application monitoring.3. Flexible in monitoring methods such as - SNMP, WMI, Agent, API etc4. Flexible in Distributed architecture across multiple geos.5. Easy integration with other platforms such as Service Now, Splunk etc6. Less cost comparatively.
