This software is suited for a smaller organization with a small datacenter that uses mainly HP hardware. Once the environment gets larger it would pay to move to some of their paid for products
Alex Gouskos | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Pingdom

I've found Pingdom to be the best solution for relatively simple uptime checks when you need a reliable way to run those checks and alert on failures. I haven't used their transaction monitoring or Real User Monitoring features but it may be great at those too.

Pros

HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

  • HP Systems Insight Manager is very good at scanning for devices and adding them for monitoring is almost effortless.
  • HP Systems Insight Manager is very good at detecting most HP hardware and integrating with local management software.
Alex Gouskos | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • Monitoring as many websites as we can throw at it.
  • Customer Service has been extremely great with quick responses and resolution.
  • The ability to integrate with our chat client or via web hook with allows for maximum visibility amongst team members.
John Birks | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

  • I think some of the areas that HP Systems Insight Manager can improve is non HP hardware.
  • This software also sometimes struggles handling larger environments.
  • This software also has issues managing environments that aren't set up perfectly.
Alex Gouskos | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • sometimes sends false alerts
  • there should be some threshold value for when an application is not reachable, it should alert after 30 seconds and keep sending hello packets for those 30 seconds and if still there is no response, then it should send the alert.
  • too many unwanted metrics.

Recently added features have made Pingdom less intuitive for our requirements. While Pingdom has a broad offering and remains a good value, it is becoming more than we need. Our customer base is becoming more and more global and Pingdom still lacks Asia-Pacific monitoring, which we will need within a year.

For basic functions it's very easy to set up and use. However, for more advanced functions it takes a lot of time to figure out its quirks

Pingdom is easy to use, very intuitive and has a very short learning curve. From the onset, we've been able to jump in and leverage the tool to accomplish our goals for page speed performance and discover the insights we need to make improvements. Its a well-designed tool and makes for a good user experience.

Customer service from Solarwinds has always been stellar. We've never gone unnoticed, even though we're currently within their tail segment. They're a great partner to us and indeed an important one. When we've had to submit a ticket, we've always received a response within 24 hours. I'd highly recommend SolarWinds to any organization with a server network

Alternatives Considered

HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

Some of the other products I use for system management are HP SiteScope and SolarWinds Orion NPM and APM. SiteScope is another good HP product but it isn't very cost effective to use for general system management. It's good for performing complex alerting and monitoring. SolarWinds makes a great product but it is better geared for gathering statistics and performance data real-time and historically. Again the cost of this product makes it ineffective for general system monitoring.

SolarWinds Pingdom

Some of the products mentioned here are much more "holistic solutions" for monitoring, analyzing, logging, alerting, etc., but for the use case, we use SolarWinds Pingdom. I think that SolorWinds Pingdom is much simpler and friendlier for configuring and maintaining. We selected SolarWinds Pingdom for this case due to our previous acquaintance which left a good impression on us.

Return on Investment

HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

  • Since this software is free if you buy HP hardware the cost is nothing which is nice for cash strapped businesses.
  • This software has a somewhat difficult time handling large environments where systems are not configured perfectly for this software.
  • I would always recommend having multiples of this software installed for redundancy because generally unless it and the environment is properly configured it can require maintenance.
Alex Gouskos | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • Makes sure people trying out Quepid.com don't experience broken onboarding experiences.
  • Confidence that when I bring up a demo for a customer, it is up and responding!
  • Keeps my cloud-deployed services "warm" by hitting them every minute, so when I go to hit them, they are up and running.
  • Confidence in your infrastructure.
