Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

SolarWinds NPM is used in our organization by the network unit in the IT department, mainly to monitor the infrastructure which contains routers, switches, a wireless controller, a load balancer and link controllers. A weekly, monthly and early report is generated which shows the usage of each and every device.

Pros

  • Tracking of online andoffline devices
  • Multi vendor support

Cons

  • i wish that it could allow to capture live usage of bandwidth per device (currently it supports 30 second interval for data capture)
  • Faster detection of a problem
  • Increased the network team's efficiency
Multi vendor support and support of the majority of products used in an infrastructure is plus point for SolarWinds NPM.
SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor is well suited for multi vendor devices in an infrastructure.
