SolarWinds ipMonitor

I have been using ipMonitor for the past 10 years to successfully complete small to mid-size network projects by providing visibility of the network and the devices in addition to reporting to the client throughout the acceptance process. It has also proven to be a valuable resource when it comes to identifying network problems and improving overall network performance

Pros

CoScale

  • Visualizes Kubernetes web performance in context.
  • Automatically creates a number of default, but very informative dashboards.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds ipMonitor

  • ipMonitor is well suited to use SNMP sources to monitor up states and usage such as network interfaces
  • ipMonitor does a great job of measuring bandwidth usage and delivering a long term 'picture' of usage
  • ipMonitor has an exceptional interface that is easy to use and simple to navigate
Mike Maner | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

CoScale

  • It is missing a summary view of resource consumption by all instances of a given service.
  • Takes an old school approach to save dashboard changes with a button.

SolarWinds ipMonitor

  • The interface could be more intuitive.
  • Alerts could be less dry.
  • Rebooting the ipMonitor host seems to trigger every monitor you've selected to send an email.

I have very few pieces of software, that are specific to IT and IT services, that just work. Honestly, I don't need the support as it never breaks, but I believe in rewarding vendors that make valuable products

We have been working with CoScale for quite some time now, and we have not encountered too many problems really. The majority of minor issues we ran into were quickly solved by reaching out to technical community forums. When it comes to the remaining ones, we were able to solve those efficiently with assistance from the supporting team of technical experts.

There are very few pieces of software or equipment that I use on a daily basis that just work. This is one of them.

Alternatives Considered

CoScale

CoScale was developed as a next-generation monitoring and alerting system for Kubernetes container orchestration engine, and it largely delivers what was promised by leveraging direct integration into the orchestration engine itself. Compared to other vendors, CoScale's in-container monitoring allows even to monitor the services running within the containers, which makes a huge difference for us.

I feel that ipMonitor does not provide the granularity or level of configuration we require for our teams. We actually are looking at other means of customizing our monitors using the products listed, which I think will provide my teams with the ability to create better alerts that can be customized easier and can provide more depth of monitoring and alerting.

Return on Investment

CoScale

  • Information provided by CoScale accelerates problem solving for us.
  • Significantly lowers the time to identify any issues with our container environment.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds ipMonitor

  • We experienced a network issue that our provider stated was us generating more traffic that our allotted bandwidth. Solar winds allowed us to identify and traffic actual flow of traffic and quantitatively prove we were not saturating our bandwidth connection.
  • We used the log summary to identify an employee that had more access than they should have and were access information they should not have had access to.
