Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

We use NPM for the Monitoring of network devices across the whole organization for all our offices around the world. We are using Netpath services as well as the user device tracker, NetFlow etc. to monitor and troubleshoot various issues on a day-to-day basis. It address our various problems by providing insights on different statistics e.g. we can actually see the end to the path in the internet for services, and it actually tells us any packet loss or latency in the internet between end to end nodes -- that's so cool. :)
  • Quick to set up new nodes.
  • Simple to navigate across different components.
  • Very good documentation on any of their components and the ability to customize a lot of stuff.
  • Nothing that I can think about.
NetPath is, of course, a great component and is a great help to us. We are able to see performance statistics from the past and can see what was wrong and most importantly where the issue was in the end-to-end path, which is a huge help when showing past performance to anyone. :)
Our organization is using network insights and its great components.
Yes, we are using this to filter out unnecessary alerts, and it is great to save time for troubleshooting rather than looking for related alerts. Kudos!
  • This is a great help to get visibility on our devices and helps to take backups and send emails in case of any failure so we can comply with the policies.
It is well suited for configuring and monitoring nodes in our organization. NetPath services and NetFlow monitor are really valuable tools for us along with the User Device Tracker.
