Intermapper

Intermapper is a light weight, quick and easy to use monitoring application. It will get you up and monitoring key infrastructure devices with a simple management interface and effective alert system that doesn't generate a lot of noise. It provides mobile device access through a web interface and is relatively inexpensive.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

Absolutely I would recommend the product. If you want a single product to monitor and manage your whole environment, whether it's hardware, servers (physical or virtualised), networking and all from a single "portal" Solarwinds SAM is what you want to use. You could quite easily start off with SAM, and then decide you wish to monitor the networking side of things, you can obtain the NTA/MPM module, if you wish to monitor IP address usage, or IP conflicts, DHCP etc., you can install the IPAM module. It all neatly integrates into the same portal, meaning you go to one address and all the information is there at your fingertips.

Pros

Intermapper

  • The best thing about Intermapper is that it is map-based. You start by building your map, which is done completely automatically. I've used many different monitoring software packages, Solarwinds, Nagios, Opmanager, and it is a royal PITA to create live maps with those.
  • Another great feature is that it shows you, visually, the bandwidth utilization of your network by using "ants" and color codes. Incredibly useful.
  • Alarms are very easy to setup, again much easier than the packages mentioned above.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

  • Identify and monitor critical services on an IBMi platform.
  • Identify and monitor critical services on a Windows Server Platform.
  • Set thresholds to provide notifications where necessary to address serious issues before it hampers the operation.
  • Provide usage reports and other data that can be useful for forming IT Strategy.

Cons

Intermapper

  • Setting up probes in bulk can be difficult, so it can take a long time to get the system set up correctly to start.
  • Sometimes the probes can be sensitive and report false positives.
  • Interface can be a little clunky and non intuitive at times.

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.

The product works well and is very easy to maintain. As such, we haven't had many occasions to use support. When we have called them they were easy to contact and responsive to our questions. We have had the product for years and it may have been a year or better since the last time we contacted them.

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

Intermapper

Intermapper is a cross between WhatsUp Gold and Nagios. WhatsUp Gold being for a less technical end-user and Nagios doing more than just SNMP scans and up down monitoring.

I have tried and researched many products including Cacti, Zabbix, Dynatrace, as far as I have read the best crafted product among them is SolarWinds. [Already], SolarWinds company is the most successful company that has proven itself in issues such as monitoring and logging.
