Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

We use SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor in the IT department to help us keep an eye on our network resources, from UPS to routers to servers and wireless radios. We monitor our VMware environment, server resources, VPN tunnels, battery levels and output. We have it send us alerts when things get out of whack, and weekly reports of outages. It's really a Swiss army knife of monitoring. It helps us be more proactive in dealing with issues, like disk space, CPU and memory spikes, failing power equipment or high loads, and network line issues. In addition to real time status, we can also check historical trends to help identify any issues.
  • Integrating with equipment to pull the data you want.
  • Interface is easy to configure, manage and maintain.
  • Threshold alerts and automated reports.
  • Would be nice to have integration with SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer.
  • Allowed us to be more proactive in dealing with growth issues. This led to less overall down time.
It is well suited anywhere where someone is responsible for monitoring network equipment.
