Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

Within our organisation, we use SolarWinds to monitor the most important applications. We give permissions to our customers to view their own data. DPA is saving us on logging in on servers and telling the customer to modify their application (they can see it themselves and fix it themselves). Also it gives us background information on the Virtualization layer and their isseus. It is really helpfull as a first responder to a customer with performance questions.
  • monitor databases
  • monitor servers
  • monitor on virtualisation isseus.
  • adding permissions for users or domain groups
  • adding boxes is not easy
  • being able to remove servers after x month (automagically or via an API)
DPA is well suited in larger environments. In a MSP model it is not very usable because of all the open ports needed. The culprit of agentless operation.
