Product Details

What is SolarWinds NPM?

SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) delivers comprehensive network fault monitoring and performance management that scales and expands with a company's network monitoring needs. Users can collect and view availability, real-time and historical statistics from routers, switches, firewalls, servers, and any other SNMP-, ICMP-, or WMI-enabled devices directly from a web browser.

The vendor states that SolarWinds users can get a full NPM installation up and running the same day they download, and that implementation does not require a team of consultants. NPM provides visibility into the health of network devices and servers on the network, ensuring that users have needed real-time information to keep their network running at peak performance.

Network Performance Monitor helps IT Pros:

  • Quickly detect, diagnose, and resolve network performance issues and avoid downtime
  • Respond to multiple condition checks, correlated events, and device dependencies
  • Automatically calculate capacity exhaustion dates using customizable thresholds based on peak and average usage
  • Streamline network troubleshooting with an easy-to-use Web interface
  • View paths to critical business services hop-by-hop, even into the cloud, with the NetPath™ feature
  • Get deeper visibility into complex network devices with Network Insight™ features for Cisco ASA firewalls, Cisco Nexus switches, and F5 BIG-IP load balancers

NPM is our only enterprise level monitoring tool and we like to keep it that way!!! the last thing we want or need is to try and fix something that isn't broken. No need to try something that won't benefit our needs. We plan on staying put for a long time.

The entire IT staff relies on NPM in its daily operations. It would be impossible for us to maintain our level of service without it. If SolarWinds gets to proud of their product and begins to over charge for it, we would be forced to reconsider and use a different product. But as it stands it is worth the price to renew it.

We've had SolarWinds for over 15 years and can't imagine trying to manage the network without it. The price for support is reasonable for what we get. They continue improving the product so it is a value for us. Plus they have improved updating the product a lot. It is so easy now to update.

We have utilized SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor more efficiently over time. As we have begun to use more advanced settings, we have required help from SolarWinds support. We need to keep the system updated to comply with the security standards and to benefit from the new features in the updates if any.

We gave it a 10 because there seems to be nothing on the market that comes close to all the features that SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor gives us. All of the features that come with SolarWinds helps to make our IT department more efficient and gives a better ROI for our company.

Low maintenance cost and great support on problems and issues. SolarWinds has been used here for over 10 years and we are able to have minimal down time and has been solid on monitoring and alerting on our network setup. They are constantly adding new and improving the product and making it better to use all around.
