Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds ipMonitor

SolarWinds ipMonitor is used at the level of the entire infrastructure of our business network. It helps us to carry out the monitoring of each of our network devices, servers, and applications, which facilitates us to observe their performance and to be able to find where, how and when critical problems occur in our network. Its interface is simple and very easy to use and gives the advantage of being able to view, from a single console, the status of the entire infrastructure that is monitored 24/7. We not only observe performance but also we are aware of any device that wishes to harm the network.
  • Monitors the entire infrastructure 24/7, which facilitates the vision of any unknown device that wishes to enter the network
  • Send alerts immediately upon detection of a status change in network devices.
  • It allows to visualize the performance from a single console of each device, server and applications
  • It is very easy to use and implement
  • It is a very complete and versatile software, but its price can be somewhat high for small companies.
  • During the analysis of the collected data the process can be somewhat slow, so it takes more time than expected.
  • Its configuration process can be somewhat complex since it requires several configurations so having prior knowledge is helpful.
  • By having effective monitoring 24/7, it is much easier to monitor the performance of each of the devices, servers, and applications that are part of our network.
  • Adding devices for monitoring is a simple process, thus saving a lot of time that can be implemented for other activities.
  • By having a large infrastructure at the business level, it is very important for us to maintain its performance correctly, as well as to avoid inactivity and any problems. Thanks to this software it is possible to reduce downtime due to your automated repair.
LogicMonitor is software with a fast-loading interface, with integrated alerts, so establishing them is simple due to its pre-configurations. However, SolarWinds ipMonitor [has] more complete characteristics because its interface is modern and easy to use. It offers fast and continuous monitoring 24/7 and has automated repairs which are of great help to shorten the downtime of the business infrastructure, that is why we have decided to keep it.

SolarWinds ipMonitor is a software that is generally easy to use online thanks to its modern and versatile interface, so using this tool to start in the monitoring world is a good option, however its configuration has a somewhat learning curve elevated but with the help of its support team it could be carried out without any inconvenience.
SolarWinds ipMonitor has and provides a highly qualified support team, which is always available in case of any inconvenience, so their equipment is very useful and if the solution is not found in their documentation, going to them is the most indicated solution, since the problem is solved quickly, as contacting them by phone call makes the process even easier, but there are always other means of communication available such as mail or tickets, but it is possible to choose the means that best suits our needs.
  • It is ideal to carry out the monitoring of the devices, servers and applications that are managed at the level of the business infrastructure, because it keeps them under supervision and alerts [us] to any change or the presence of the entry of an unknown device so that it does not their performance is affected.
  • It provides effective monitoring and provides high visibility of each of the devices and applications from a single console, making it ideal for observing where a problem comes from.
  • Its reports are very detailed so they are of great help to obtain critical information about each device, server or application.
