Monitis

Monitis does extremely well at monitoring external connections in a simple and intuitive way. However, it doesn't provide deeper insights into why those services may have gone offline. There isn't an integrated trace route or net path type capability for individual uptime monitors. Great for alerting, not so much for investigation. It is a fantastic tool for alerting you to outages.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor is well suited for the environment where we need to monitor infrastructure architecture and applications purchased from other vendors. It is not suitable to monitor the applications made by the organization itself as it doesn't give full stack trace and is unable to monitor business transactions.

Pros

Monitis

  • Monitis is very strong in networks
  • Monitis is valuable in all the monitoring procedures relating to telephony and general control of lines.
  • The administration of networks in the servers allows an adequate and centralized control.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

  • It integrates with MS Windows, so you can keep track of services, processes or nic utilization/bandwidth.
  • You can also view the history of a lot of the monitor you choose. It can be helpful to isolate an issue if it's happening at a regular interval.
  • Linux and non-Windows OSs are supported using SNMP and even an agent if want to take advantage of other Solarwinds features.
  • It plays nice with other software, so you won't have conflicts with monitoring. Always a plus if more than one team is looking at data on the host.
Fernando Villamil | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Monitis

  • User experience
  • URL sharing
Tomasz Sikora | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

  • I would much like to see the modules sold in categorically grouped bundles, such as a networking bundle which would include all modules relating to the network.
  • Would love to see an addition of an API or something like that to connect to VMware Vcenters.
  • Found that if you acknowledge alerts, it makes it very difficult to remediate them inside of the program.

What makes this product great is that it is easy to setup and configure. Many products are very time consuming to get setup and implement. This leads to a delay in their use, and slow adoption. Because of the ease of use of Solarwinds we have gotten a lot of use out of it.

We talk to a initial person and they may not be specialized in what we are trying to resolve. They then have to call back or have someone call back after that person is free from working on another issue with another customer.

Alternatives Considered

Monitis

Monitis isn't a true RMM system in that it really lacks the second "M". This product does fantastic at remotely monitoring a large variety of endpoint types without an agent and is capable of getting even more in-depth with its agent-based monitoring. However, it is definitely not a replacement for a full RMM product like SolarWinds, Kaseya, or ConnectWise. It can be a great product to augment your existing tools but isn't likely a replacement.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

The tool does what it says, and gives you great insight into your environment. Out of all the SolarWinds products that I have used over the years, my top two are SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor and N-Able. Depending on your business needs, either will do the job, but it depends on your use case. For me, I like to work remote, be able to diagnose issues quickly, and fix issues from anywhere that I have an internet connection.

Return on Investment

Monitis

  • It has been adequate since it identifies my levels of financial indices which I wish to reach or maintain.
  • In the time I had this tool, the control has been more positive than negative, and I like how effective it can be in the different aspects that use it.
Jose Raul Faria | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

  • One of the biggest areas of ROI is for our DBA, with the combination of SAM and DPA we have been able to streamline the maintenance and troubleshooting of applications. On several instances, it has taken us probably less than 5 minutes to tell supervisors where the issue lies when something is not working.
  • The second area that it helps is helping us see trends on our servers to know if we need to address specific areas of growth to ensure continued productivity and smooth operations.
  • Initially this was not part of our "initial" purchase with SolarWinds, however, now it is definitely one of the core SolarWinds modules that are used on a daily basis to assist in monitoring our network.
