Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

We have been centralising our IP allocation after years of neglect and Solarwind's IPAM turned out to be a great product making the whole experience much easier. Furthermore it gives us live monitoring of utilisation of particular subnets - which then allowed us to be proactive to problems, rather than wait for reports from users about devices not working.

I quite like the hierarchical structure we can put the subnets in, as this makes the whole management easier. We're still on a journey to leverage it's full potential but in our environment we tend to implement tools as far as needed to solve a problem (which it did) and refine it only when there's time to spare. I'm sure in coming months we'll have a chance to explore it's functionality further.
  • IP address management.
  • Subnet utilisation reporting.
  • Network structuring.
  • User interface is a bit complex.
  • Ability to mute/tailor alert icons for transport subnets.
  • Facilitates network management.
  • Removes reliance on spreadsheets.
  • Saves engineer's time.
We checked Windows IPAM which seems well suited for smaller networks. Other products didn't cut it based on cost - this also integrates with the rest of our SolarWinds estate.
Always responsive and there's a lot of information on Thwack/internet as it's a fairly popular product.

Are you happy with SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)'s feature set?


Did SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM) live up to sales and marketing promises?

Would you buy SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM) again?


The interface takes some getting used to and some aspects coule be easier to manager. However, it does the job and fairly quickly becomes a go-to tool.
Best case is for managing broad or complex addressing spaces. For simpler networks I would find it more difficult to justify the expenditure or setup effort.
