Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor
We use it on customer's networks for monitoring, alerting, and reporting. We have too many devices to monitor manually. We also use NCM, but I don't believe that is included in the scope of this review
- I currently don't have any knowledge regarding this.
I would rarely suggest NPM to someone I think is familiar with SNMP and willing to do more manual configuration. Zabbix is free and provides essentially everything NPM does, just with a lot more manual configuration required. However, for a business requiring support contracts and easy use/setup, I would recommend NPM over anything else.
