Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Automation Manager (NAM)

We ae using Solarwinds NAM (Network Automation Manager) for our end customers. We implement this product to monitor and manage our end custom Network infrastructure end to end. One of the module of NAM i.e. NCM is used for devices configuration backup and compliances monitoring. IPAM is used for IP Addresses management.
  • Fault and Performance Monitoring
  • Devices Configuration Backup
  • IP Address Management
  • Voice Infrastructure Monitoring
  • Users Ports monitoring
  • Netflow Traffic Utilization
  • Event Management
  • REST API Pollers
  • Telemetry Data
  • Centralized Network Monitoring
  • Centralized Syslog and Traps Capturing Solution
  • Bandwidth Utilization Monitoring
  • One Vendor
  • One Tool
  • Easy Integrations
  • Centralized Monitoring
  • One Console for monitoring
Well Solarwinds is placed much ahead of these products because of the following reasons -

One single tool which can perform Fault, Performance Monitoring, Network Bandwidth Utilization, Devices configuration backup, IP Address Management, NetPath, Voice Infra Monitoring, Traps and Syslog Logging, Alerting's, Users Ports Monitoring, Rpeorting etc and hence this make Solarwinds a complete solutions. Whereas other products Like Microfocus requires multiple modules and installation is not easy.

LogicMonitor on the other side is well competing (Specially SD-WAN Monitoring) with Solarwinds but it still lacks Devices Configuration Push feature, IP Address Management, NetPath, Users Port Monitoring etc.

Do you think SolarWinds Network Automation Manager (NAM) delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with SolarWinds Network Automation Manager (NAM)'s feature set?


Did SolarWinds Network Automation Manager (NAM) live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of SolarWinds Network Automation Manager (NAM) go as expected?


Would you buy SolarWinds Network Automation Manager (NAM) again?


Solarwinds NAM is well suited if you want following -
1. Monitor multiple vendor devices from single tool.
2. Multiple capabilities from one umbrella tool.
3. Easy and default integration with ITSM Solution.
4. API driven architecture and hence automation can be done easily.

If you planning to monitor SD-WAN devices then Solarwinds may not be good solution as it does not have in-built pollers for the same like for devices v-manage, viptela etc. In this case either you have to leverage native solutions and integrate with Solarwinds or use different solutions.
