Yes - SolarWinds: too expensive and required constant tweaking. We also are replacing Cisco Prime with SL, since the capabilities are contained within SL in a consolidated platform. We wanted to move to a consolidated toolset with much fewer product lines and fewer silos, so SL was a perfect fit for our organization.
Our level of visibility across our infrastructure has increased dramatically. SL provides excellent metrics and data that helps keep on top of network events, and application and business services monitoring are being built to support the changing needs of our organization. With the move to a hybrid environment of private & public cloud application installs, SL has become key for us.
SL is helping us automate many workflows and processes, and is being integrated with our ServiceNow platform and orchestration products.
- Asset management tracking by original purchaser orders.
- Trending of bandwidth on WAN links to trigger increases if needed.
- Device license tracking.
- SolarWinds Log & Event Manager
SL is hands down better that SolarWinds in all aspects.
Trending of interfaces on routers, switches, servers is excellent. Building dashboards and reports with relevant data for executives is easy and intuitive. Adding new assets to the system is fairly easy, and discovery works well. Integrations with other toolsets is easy, and pulling data from the SL database via REST-API is easy to setup and test. I look forward to the AI features in Big Ben.
