Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer

We use Solarwinds for real time monitoring of network devices and servers at multiple locations. Solarwinds can be one of the best monitoring solutions around, though it is very modular so it can be pricey to get all the features.
  • Real time
  • Alerts
  • All-in-one solution
  • More Features
  • Price
  • Initial setup can be overwhelming
  • Big learning curve
  • Complex licensing model
  • Monitoring and alerting capability
I feel the product is at the upper end of what I'd expect to pay. I also have found the hardware requirements to be somewhat high (to be fair-we run multiple Solarwinds apps on the server).
Overall experience with web help desk is good.
Solarwinds has more feature customization, but they are complicated to use however the vendor provided support so we decided to go with Solarwinds.
HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC)
The ability to have config backups and use those backups for config checks. We have port-security on a set of switch ports and we can check every night that those ports still have it configured. As well when no security policies are put in place we can check all routers for the new config and make sure it is there. SolarWinds tends to be slow and unwieldy. Maintaining nodes to make sure that everything is monitored tends to be labor intensive. The UI needs a major overhaul.
