Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Device Monitor

SolarWinds NPM, NCM, NTA, etc.. are all
Cognizant one of the preferred Monitoring tools and Many of our customers uses
this for network performance monitoring.
  • Exceptionally good in Network devices performance and availability monitoring like CPU, Memory, Interfaces throughput, bandwidth utilization, etc...
  • Broad network devices like Routers, Switches, Firewalls, Load Balancers, and vendors coverage like Cisco, Juniper, Avaya, Broadcom, EMC, Fortinet, etc...
  • Good diagnostic and logging method
  • I believe we should have more flexibility in Integration Options with event Management tools and ITSM tools other than SNOW
  • I believe its high time for Solarwinds to come up with good Event Management or AIOPs capability that includes correlation, Anomaly detection, Predictive analysis, and RCA
  • Quick response to the support tickets Irrespective of severity
  • Devices Performance monitoring CPU and memory
  • Interface- WAN, LAN, POS, Ethernet Monitoring
  • Wireless controllers and Access Points monitoring
  • We have a lot of Banking and financial customer, even a short outage can cause a huge financial loss and NPM helps to avoid such outages and save dollars and improve customer experience
  • It did affect negatively when supply chain attach happened, few of our customers decided to move out of the Solarwinds, however, post that incident I could see vendors bounce back aggressively and overshadow the incident
Cognizant has done extensive POC/POV on SolarWinds
modules specifically on NPM and we believe it has out of the box broad range of devices, vendors, and versions monitoring and
also multiple modules options like NCM for
configurations Management, NTA for network traffic analyzer, DPA for database performance
monitoring, etc... and BAU is very easy.

One of our preferred network monitoring tools is
SolarWinds, we recommend these tools for complete network performance and availably
monitoring and advanced monitoring like monitoring the network traffic,
bandwidth utilization, IPSLA for voice devices, etc...

We usually do not recommend if the customer is
looking for basic monitoring like only availability. it can be achieved with any
monitoring tool.
