SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor is able to provide 90% of the functionality my business requires. SolarWinds is able to scale out functionality by purchasing additional modules to meet the individual needs of its customers. While this functionality provides flexibility to build out a robust platform, it can quickly turn into purchasing more and more add-ons which can begin to provide a decreasing amount of value. Companies with requirements for more detailed APM metrics may find SolarWinds comes up short for their use case scenarios.

Solarwinds Server & Application Monitor is a great comprehensive monitoring solution. It covers all aspects of monitoring your infrastructure via a modular approach. While other applications can be slightly better at asset management or monitoring one specific application or application suite, Solarwinds Server & Application Monitor does a great job across the board while being extremely flexible and customizable

PRGT Network Monitor seems to be very good, initially, but, in our experience, when we reached close to 100 devices, the system kept crashing and behaving erratic. Prometheus was missing many features and required some CLI scripting and the GUI was years behind SolarWinds. The learning curve was higher whereas SolarWinds Nagios Core was more lightweight, but required scripting for everything that we wanted to add and monitor. It was not feasible for many servers and the learning curve was very high compared to SolarWinds.

SolarWinds Pingdom and AppOptics [are] full-fledged Application Performance Management Tools. [SolarWinds] SAM provides Server and Application Monitoring using [SolarWinds] SAM templates, [but] it does miss out on APM capabilities which other APM solutions offer.

In comparison to Spiceworks [Connectivity Dashboard,] SolarWinds [has] way [more] features and [an] easy-to-use system. ManageEngine [Application Control Plus] also provides a good look [at the] dashboard but needs a lot more enhancements when it comes to real-time monitoring. PRTG [Network Monitor] could be a good competitor for Solarwinds [Server and Application Monitor] and can be rated almost the same. [The] support level of SolarWinds [maintains the] upper hand when the products [are] compared.

I can safely say SolarWinds comes up on top versus the individual products we used in the past. SolarWinds was selected because of its ease of use, its visual layout which allows you to easily and quickly browse through the information its currently providing for a monitored object, as well as how it integrates seamlessly between different systems and hardware, all from a single portal. As a result, we have saved time and money, as it has given us a clear picture of our environment from a single portal which meant we no longer had any black spots or areas of our environment which had poor visibility.

Event Sentry was the previous product we relied on for monitoring and alerts. SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor simply has more features, is more comprehensive, has a better use interface, [and] has better support and knowledge base behind it while not being cost prohibitive for an enterprise product.
