Single window to look for hardware statistics and application monitoring. Easy to configure, and a lot of stuff is available online related to its configuration. However, the team at Munin should work on the mobile applications as well and also look for bundling professional services at a cost. That will be helpful for startups to hook to Munin instead of running across websites for the integration.

Ease of admin and relatively easy to configure. People have been using it for decades, so the market is well aware of its functionality, and you will get answers to most of the questions or problems. Community support is also there to seek advice. In a nutshell, people are well aware, and it's stable.

Well Solarwinds is placed much ahead of these products because of the following reasons - One single tool which can perform Fault, Performance Monitoring, Network Bandwidth Utilization, Devices configuration backup, IP Address Management, NetPath, Voice Infra Monitoring, Traps and Syslog Logging, Alerting's, Users Ports Monitoring, Rpeorting etc and hence this make Solarwinds a complete solutions. Whereas other products Like Microfocus requires multiple modules and installation is not easy. LogicMonitor on the other side is well competing (Specially SD-WAN Monitoring) with Solarwinds but it still lacks Devices Configuration Push feature, IP Address Management, NetPath, Users Port Monitoring etc.
