Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

SolarWinds NPM is used across the entire organization to help identify problem areas which previously we had difficulty detecting. NPM provides the data we need to improve network performance for all of our departments. Our employees depend on our network to be there for them, and NPM helps us to deliver.
  • The ability to add custom alerts.
  • The ability to change up the dashboard with Orion integration.
  • The speed of agent reporting.
  • Server performance. The product seems to use a lot of resources.
It helps us to organize equipment and gives us a better visual perspective of what is going on with devices.
Yes, we've set up alerts which have helped us to either shorten the duration of a segment outage or helped prevent it altogether.
  • We haven't had the opportunity to put the pencil to paper to determine ROI yet. However, we have reduced manhours by addressing issues faster.
Price and features - SolarWinds won.
I believe it is well suited for any business network environment.
