SolarWinds ipMonitor is well suited in situation where customer do not wants to hold the responsibility of underlying monitoring infrastructure management such as Servers, Database, website and their high availability. And of course when you need Network, Servers, Services fault and performance monitoring. When you have specialized network monitoring requirement such as Configuration backup, netflow traffic analysis then this is not the right tool.

SolarWinds ipMonitor is very easy to set-up and use, but can be quite slow to execute. Therefore, I don't think it will work in a medium-to-large organisation. Also, the interface is not suited for 100s of devices. The customisibility could also be better, so enterprises that require strict branding rules need to look elsewhere.

ipMonitor is well suited where there is a requirement of SaaS based fault and availability monitoring requirement and where customers do not want to purchase heavy hardware's and software to run the show. All they have to do is to subscribe ipMonitor plan and start monitoring using the simple monitoring wizard. It also has a feature of auto remediation and hence much useful

SolarWinds ipMonitor can be used in small to medium sized environments. Can provide basic monitoring and easy to setup. Light Weight and easy to deploy and maintain. Provides decent analytics, dashboards and reports.

Is not useful for advanced monitoring or large sized environments. Does not integrate with other SolarWinds modules like SAM or VMAN.

SolarWinds ipMonitor is great for small to medium organizations and departments. It is well suited for web applications running low-resource servers which could be either virtual or physical. This tool is great for servers which are running with low resources such as CPU cores and memory. This tool is also easy to install and easy to operate. Maintenance is very easy and cost effective. Basically, organizations or departments that run low to medium applications will be best suited.
For the organizations which are in busy environments and having high network bandwidth consumption, this might not be suitable. There are issues identified for web applications running on clustered environments.

  • It is ideal to carry out the monitoring of the devices, servers and applications that are managed at the level of the business infrastructure, because it keeps them under supervision and alerts [us] to any change or the presence of the entry of an unknown device so that it does not their performance is affected.
  • It provides effective monitoring and provides high visibility of each of the devices and applications from a single console, making it ideal for observing where a problem comes from.
  • Its reports are very detailed so they are of great help to obtain critical information about each device, server or application.

On a scale from 1-10 I would say I'm somewhere in between an 7 and 8. The only gripe I have is the way ipMonitor is licensed per "monitor". With the number of devices we had, we saw an expensive bill. Other than that, it's easier to use than most of the other monitoring apps we've tried.

It does a pretty decent job when it comes to monitoring. It is able to monitor a wide range of protocols/services (ICMP, HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP) and it has a good set of configurations for alerting. Of course, there are some 'more-flexible' tools and easier to manage, but SolarWinds ipMon is also a good choice.

I have been using ipMonitor for the past 10 years to successfully complete small to mid-size network projects by providing visibility of the network and the devices in addition to reporting to the client throughout the acceptance process. It has also proven to be a valuable resource when it comes to identifying network problems and improving overall network performance.

In lieu of having an actual NOC or a network/system admin or even using an outside service, ipMonitor performs like an additional team member tracking network devices making sure all your critical nodes are up and active. If you are looking for a fun, visually interesting interface that you want to reference on a daily basis, ipMonitor leaves some room for improvement there.

IPMon is well suited to monitor server resource usage and uptime. It does this job perfectly. If you want to get more involved custom alerting, it can get a little tricky. Also, the historical data is not stored in a way that is easily exportable for outside reporting.

Checking to see if a service is responding or a specific port is available on servers is the best case where I see ipMonitor working well. In most cases, though, it is limited to a simple up or down situation without a lot of ability to customize an alert or the condition of an alert.

Good for monitoring pings, SMTP, HTTP, HTTPS. The ping monitor has been critical for business operations. We can figure out very quickly if a building or floor is down. After ping, being able to monitor certain services has been helpful with different systems and deliverables for the IT team. Reporting is simple to configure and use effectively.

I have tried several other solutions for server monitoring and overall I prefer to use SolarWinds ipMonitor for the servers. There really is not a scenario where I would not recommend this product.

If you do small tests of DEV environments, then IPmonitor is a great solution. It is not suitable for large enterprise environments as the features and detail are simply not heavy enough to provide a full picture.

If you are looking for a way to 'set it & forget it' with regards to network hardware and software, ipMonitor is for you. It's a perfect mechanism for monitoring usage and up states network-wide.

It really depends on what tools you have from SolarWinds and how you deploy and configure them to each environment. You don't want nonstop alarms from users' machines blipping a certain point on hardware or related. Once you have monitoring, when you have large projects utilizing and/or patches you need to remember, that monitoring may need to be disabled or tuned to not react to planned use on hardware networks.

For basic monitoring, ipMonitor is easy to configure and use. At the simpler end of the scale, I would highly recommend it. If you have a need for more advanced features and complexity like triggering scripts in response to events then another product might be required.

IpMonitor can be perfectly used in small infrastructures, branch offices etc. For enterprises, I'd go with other tools.
