Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset

SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset is used in some of our customer's SolarWinds environment as an adhoc utility for quick debugging of some of the issues which requires user's to login manually on SolarWinds NMS servers and then test it. These toolsets helps suer to allow basic checks right from the SolarWinds orion console such as for ping check of the devices, SSH connectivity, Telnet connectivity of devices from SolarWinds NMS servers.
  • Debugging Tools

  • Licensing structure
  • More debugging commands support

We have used LogicMonitor, PRTG and WhatsUp Gold previously which are similar to SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset capability. However SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset is completely unique with features like - Realtime monitoring, diagnostics on the fly, network discovery, easy integration with core network fault and performance monitoring. Although SolarWinds Toolset is not cost effective.

SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset is well suited in dynamic environments where monitoring teams and network teams requires to login to the server again and again for basic troubleshooting such as Ping Check, Telnet logging and SSH Logging. However most of the users just purchase this product but never use this since the way its licensing is designed is not cost effective.
