Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

We use NPM for monitoring the up/down status of all of our Cisco switches/router (350 devices). We use it to monitor the bandwidth usage of all of the critical ports (server ports, uplinks, Internet links...). We also use it to monitor stack ports for stack switches. We get email notifications on all up/down statuses.
  • Great for reporting (email notification) up/down status of network devices.
  • Great to see status of stack ports in case 1 switch in a stack is down.
  • It is critical to see bandwidth usage and NPM does it well.
  • Not really anything. It does what we need.
We totally depend on the alerting part of NPM. We get an email when a switch goes down along with the name and IP of the switch. We also get an email when there is a routing change in our network. The alerting is why we have it.
  • Our network is very stable, part of that is because NPM helps us see issues that we would never know about.
  • You cannot have a large network without SolarWinds NPM to help having visibility into your network.
SolarWinds is so easy to set up and to use. The alerting is better. It is a much cheaper product.
NPM makes my team proactive instead of reactive. We have 30 locations that we monitor and could not live without NPM.
