It is perfectly suited for keeping all your developers up-to-date with the latest best practices. In the case of a really huge system, the possibility to identify the most critical line of script that needs to be fixed for the most severe production issues is a huge benefit. It will not be that useful for smaller projects with just a few people in the project team.

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

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.

Cons

germain CRT

  • Email alerts configuration is not user-friendly

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.

Alternatives Considered

germain CRT has a richer set of features when compared with its competition. The pricing policy of germain CRT works better for our type of products. The free trial allowed us to thoroughly evaluate if required features can be found and integrated to our advantage. Availability of both on-premise and cloud deployments is very important for us and not every vendor has it.

Flexible in Distributed architecture across multiple geos.5. Easy integration with other platforms such as Service Now, Splunk etc6. Less cost comparatively.
