Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

We currently use NPM in addition to other SolarWinds modules to manage all of the devices for the MDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems statewide. It is being used by our staff and other agencies to assist with construction projects, network planning and integration, and reporting to compare against systems utilizing the devices.
  • Ease of identifying network issues
  • Alerting and Notifications
  • Customizable Reporting
  • Cost
  • Hardware Requirements
  • Licensing Renewals
  • NPM has had a positive impact on the Network Health.
  • NPM has provided additional visibility into the network traffic.
  • Remote monitoring has cut down on our cost to maintain the devices by identifying the root cause of issues before deploying technicians to the sites.
We have found SolarWinds NPM to be a good solution for our clients with mid to large sized networks with the budget to support managing their assets. We have used alternate (open-source) solutions for some of our clients with smaller networks but find there are a lot less features available compared to NPM.
