Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM)

It is being used to monitor our network, data center, all the IP devices and automation.

It is a customized application that monitors and reports the performance and availability status of our network and other critical components to us.

Think of it as a 24x7 guard to keep an eye on our network. It also can run automatic processes to react to certain tasks, so it can be a 24x7 fireman to put out small fire in our network.

This is suitable for an enterprise network with a lot of applications, and devices. Then, the cost to keep it running can be justified.
  • Automation.
  • Monitoring.
  • Reporting alerts.
  • Creating logs.
  • Presentation.
  • Pre-packaged monitoring items with other manufacturers.
  • Lower the cost.
  • Keeping us informed.

Enterprise monitoring is a must.
We have a map of our district on our Orion, it shows all 90 buildings. Green dot means good, yellow dot means partial issue, red dot means critical or down.

This simple presentation and all the automatic data collection are done behind the scene. Orion pulls data and creates a nice presentation front end for people like me to understand the health of our network. It is powerful and you must configure it right to explore its potential on [how] it can help you daily.

SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) Support

That I don’t know. We do not need to call their tech support much. Therefore, I can’t tell you it is good or bad. At least I have not heard any bad reviews. The product is pretty well developed and designed, so it should work well after a right installer installs it.

Using SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM)

It does what I ask it to do. It does it pretty well too.
