Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds ipMonitor
We have deployed all our EC2 instances on Amazon and ipMonitor was used to monitor all the instances. ipMonitor is a very responsive tool in terms of monitoring your resources. We had in-house and cloud-based resources which were monitored through ipMonitor and the best part was the responsiveness. We were monitoring the server health checks with storage and resources usage through ipMonitor.
- Cloud monitoring
- Can be used to monitor on-prem servers as well
- Applications and websites monitoring
- Cost was much higher than the services
- ipMonitor was well suited but the costing factor wasn't justified as there are tons of open-source tools available in the market with more functionalities
- Alerts response was very good and ipMonitor served well with health checks.
We were trying to evaluate different providers and ipMonitor suited us because we had on-prem and cloud instances and management decided to check the paid tool. The ipMonitor is a very responsive tool and it served the purpose well but as IT is evolving and needs are changing, we discontinued the ipMonitor and shifted to Zabbix due to the customization which was the need at the time.

ipMonitor is well suited if you only want to monitor the server health, website responses, and applications health. ipMonitor serves you well in case you do not want to install agents in client machines as this will communicate through the SNMP port. In case, you need to customize the monitoring tool, you cannot perform it with ipMonitor. Adding host in ipMonitor may be a little tricky.
