We were trying to evaluate different providers and ipMonitor suited us because we had on-prem and cloud instances and management decided to check the paid tool. The ipMonitor is a very responsive tool and it served the purpose well but as IT is evolving and needs are changing, we discontinued the ipMonitor and shifted to Zabbix due to the customization which was the need at the time.

LogicMonitor is software with a fast-loading interface, with integrated alerts, so establishing them is simple due to its pre-configurations. However, SolarWinds ipMonitor [has] more complete characteristics because its interface is modern and easy to use. It offers fast and continuous monitoring 24/7 and has automated repairs which are of great help to shorten the downtime of the business infrastructure, that is why we have decided to keep it.

The way SolarWinds has clubbed the features and capabilities in SolarWinds ipMonitor is not available in other 3rd party or native tools. Even if they are available then they are very costly. I think SolarWinds is positioning ipMonitor so as to test their footprint on SaaS world with these small scale monitoring tools such as Loggly, ipmonitor, AppOptics which is a good sign to enter the SaaS based monitoring solution.

Both alternatives were great offerings, but were too extensive for our business needs. We needed something that had very low set-up costs, was easily usable, and did all the basics we need; performance metrics analysis, rogue IP detection, network mapping. In the end, along with the reasonable price point, SolarWinds offering won out.

Although there are very less SaaS based tools available in the market, SolarWinds is somewhere in middle as compared to other tools such as LogicMonitor and ScienceLogic. Reason being the timing of the product launch and features enhancement. However current capabilities in SolarWinds SaaS products is improving day by day still it requires some more time to become a mature product including ipMonitor. Appoptics is doing great but the competitors are doing much better in terms of marketing, feature set etc.

We have run Zabbix in the past and while it is a great and very flexible tool (much more than SolarWinds), it is also an Open Source tool that depends heavily on the community. When it comes to more complex environments and global implementations with business critical applications, we could not rely on the community to support us.
SolarWinds is a leader on monitoring industry and has a great support.

I had some limited exposure to Zabbix that was provided by the client for monitoring the existing network. I found it not as informative as I previously experienced using ipMonitor and we were preparing for a network migration. I ended up setting up remote monitoring using ipMonitor on a laptop and successfully migrated the network.

ipMonitor is easier to set up and is straightforward. The other products seem to require getting a bit more into the weeds to get everything to work correctly. It was more work than I was willing to do and opted to just go with an off-the-shelf solution that could get my objectives met quickly.

I feel that ipMonitor does not provide the granularity or level of configuration we require for our teams. We actually are looking at other means of customizing our monitors using the products listed, which I think will provide my teams with the ability to create better alerts that can be customized easier and can provide more depth of monitoring and alerting.

These are only a few of what we looked at, and at the end of the day it came down to cost, low footprint, and ease of use. I have suggested SolarWinds to anyone who asks what we use.

IpMonitor is easy to set up and has a clear and easy reading interface. It's user-friendly for entry-level technicians. The price is good.
However, for big enterprises, PRTG Network Monitor might be a better solution.

There are some great free or low-cost tools out there. It all depends on your budget and size. We have used a wide variety of products over the years but we recently switched our entire monitoring backbone to SolarWinds products only. They cover just about everything and ipMonitor is great for monitoring the environments we spin up in tests.

I've used simple scripted monitoring tools before, used IP monitor until we upgraded the enterprise to one scalable tool that can replace and upgrade per SLA SOX compliance standards. I moved to a larger company (much larger) and we don't use SolarWinds here. We use WUG which has its perks but nowhere near the support, tools, community, and overall simplicity. It has helped me noticed how nice SolarWinds was and is.

Used ipMonitor for 7 years. Switched recently to Idera because of larger feature set and monitoring capabilities not available on IPmonitor. For tasks that both products can do, I still prefer IPmonitor.

We have used Pasessler PRTG and ManageEngine OpsManager. Both are good products, but aren't really monitoring products, they are more management products with monitoring built in. The smaller footprint of ipMonitor, as well as the historical data storage options, were a better fit for our organization.
