SolarWinds Network Device Monitor is used as a bandwidth analyzer here at my company. We use it to monitor and measure new and existing network traffic. It definitely helped us be aware of random devices logging into our network. It also allows us to monitor traffic of the current users. It would alert us if a device is down or not connected to the network.

We set up NCM as a way to continuously monitor and report on network device configuration adherence to hardened baselines standards. We also set up alerts to Jira via email such that if a device became out of compliance an email would be sent that would create a ticket on the network team's service desk. The ticket had the necessary detail to define the compliance violation and even suggest the remediation, this included config-line numbers and even some contextual information about where in the config the problem existed. The scope was all our network devices and it solved the business problem of network device compliance to hardening standards which was part of our ISO security program.

The network is the highway to all things for the client server communication! If you want to create an app, it will more than likely touch the network, or live there. Whether it’s an sql query or a shared file to a mobile app, you need the network. So why don’t we monitor it? That was my question almost six years ago. Then came Solarwinds and the network device monitoring. From device health to resource utilization and trending. What bandwidth are going out to what port and the type of traffic if the device supports it. I know what is going in and out of the network devices, I can show you.

We utilise SolarWinds to monitor all sorts of network devices that support SNMP from different vendors e.g. Cisco, Juniper, Extreme Networks and other similar infrastructure such as IP phones, etc. The SolarWinds product allows us to quickly get an overview of the state of our network at a glance.

Solarwinds is used in our organization as a centralized point of management for all the network infrastructure. This includes switches, routers, and Firewalls, among others. In our use case, we have around 10 000 devices from several customers worldwide. The best use case for us is to understand the live utilization of device interfaces. Solarwinds can tell us instantly whether an interface is having issues and if it is saturated or not. This can be useful to spot network issues, like Spanning-tree, network attacks, and on the contrary, if an interface is not receiving any traffic at all it can help us understand other types of problems. Finally, thanks to the way it displays data it is easy for the support team to understand where each device is located.

We wanted a product to scan our environment to determine all devices on the network, whilst also mapping out the connection paths. This product enabled us to view our network topology and all active/inactive ports on our switches. It also assisted with building a visual representation of our environment.

I manage a large WAN with over 15 geographically dispersed sites, all within the same country. I primarily use this product to monitor my WAN links, network appliances and measure performance, uptime and for alerting. SolarWinds Network Device Monitor provides a central console for viewing all my devices on a single screen and I can also plot these devices on a map if needed. The system allows for devices to be grouped by site, type, etc. This allows me to see site issues at a high level if needed.

SolarWinds Network Device Monitor use to monitor the network management and monitoring the network in an organization. It is mainly for performance, and overall data network. In this, we can add nodes individually or multiple ones simultaneously.

The tool is ok for small businesses and low amount of data generated. Once you reach the "limit" which was 12 months after the launch, we got the problems, navigation got slower, DB needed some fixes, data retention policy has to be implemented. Live data is not working as expected. The overall experience gets worst as and data continues to grow. NPM module helps to find network-related bottlenecks, easy to set up and gives a great picture. My experience is ok with this module.

We currently use SolarWinds Network Device Monitor to provide visibility into our layer 2 and layer 3 network resources. The visibility gives our team tools that help mitigate network issues before they become real problems. It also provides a resource that is scalable and grows with our network and provides advance alerting.

SolarWinds is one monitoring tool that was being actively used by one of our major Petroleum/Mining clients for monitoring Network devices and was configured in each of the critical assets with ease. The interface of Solarwinds is very easy to use and learn the monitoring setup. The alerts were easy to understand and had good integration with ServiceNow.

Our use of Solarwinds Network Device Monitor is to monitor a single device via SNMP for health status and issues. Issues such as disk space, and network bandwidth. We have alerting thresholds set to email when the respective bandwidth/disk space is exceeded. This enables us to take the appropriate actions before they become a real problem.

We have offices in many other locations around the world. The Network Device Monitor for SolarWinds works with our other SolarWinds Monitoring and Automation implementations to allow to quickly view and triage any outages or performance degradation. It also helps us keep track of devices that are in use or need to be decommissioned.

I use the SolarWinds Network Device Monitor to monitor everything from hardware network devices to virtual devices on my network. Knowing when a node goes down, reboots, has latency or simple uptime metrics is extremely valuable and this tool provides all that and more. I have alerts set up to email us when any issues arise.

It's very easy to set up and use to monitor devices using SNMP or ICMP. We have alerts sent to us when devices go down and are able to change how often it monitors and the thresholds before sending us an alert. We can also easily add and remove devices from being monitored

We use it every day and heavily rely upon it for further insight and visibility into our network. It saves a lot of time diagnosing and recognizing what devices are causing bottlenecks or are having problems. Without it, you feel blind to what is going on in the network at a given time.

I use SolarWinds to help troubleshoot issues with network outages and/or network delays and resource delays. If we receive a call regarding a network outage or network slowness we can easily use Solar Winds to pinpoint what appliance may be down or experiencing an issue and to recommend that it be looked at by our network team.

Today we use SolarWinds Network Device Monitor to proactively monitor our Network Infrastructure across 2 sites. We use it to Monitor PROD and DR sites. The main problem it helps us address is high availability and reacting in a timely manner to issues that may arise.
