SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) is pretty good at forecasting capacity consumption, which was a must for us. If you have LUNs that have high latency in a normal environment (user shares, for instance), you'll need to customize the alerts to tune out the noise. As with all SW modules and most other products, there is a time lag between what is in the console and what's happening now. Data in the console and alerts are typically 5 to 15 minutes old.

  • Unmasks storage performance metrics and gives a common dashboard for monitoring.
  • A simple, intuitive interface for adding supported storage frames.
  • Lineage -- "The guest OS is connected to the virtual host and the virtual host is connected to the ... wait, what LUN is that?!?" #SOLVED.

Cons
Open Source
  • It could be a lot easier to grab a download link. Currently you have to right-click, scroll to "Copy URL," and then pick your desired version of the download URL. There are WAY too many options, and it makes it difficult. I have never needed any option other than the HTTPS version of the URL. So it's overly complicated when it doesn't need to be.
  • There are at times completely unnecessary alert messages that pop up. Usually when connecting to a server to upload a file it will pop up a message that says the connection has been verified and it's safe to continue uploading. It's really unnecessary and annoying to have to dismiss it every time.
  • I think the UI could be a little less cramped. Everything is so close together--really feels like a dated UI. If items were just a bit more spaced out, it would improve the UI significantly.

Usability

I really like the basic interface and folder like structure. It makes me feel like I'm in a regular folder window on my Mac. Navigation is simple. The toolbar is customizable to be able to add or remove icons to improve the simplicity and ease of use of the application. The app is very simply designed, which I appreciate.

I've never needed to use their support service. The few issues I've had were user-error and quickly resolved with a little googling

Alternatives Considered
Open Source
FileZilla and WinSCP are the two main alternatives to Cyberduck within my organization, and really the two main freeware competitors that I know of. Cyberduck is suited for those without a high level of technical background, and as one might guess, is also the easiest to use and navigate. FileZilla and WinSCP are both easier to use when it comes to key storage and SSH configuration, but these are tasks that our IT department does on Cyberduck for users with less technical knowledge. By us doing these tasks, the end business user is able to utilize a simple tool for their needs.

We have a full suite of SolarWinds products and did not evaluate other options for a full package. For selective monitoring we log into the devices, but this has made that much easier as we have a dashboard rather than logging into devices one at a time.
