Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

SolarWinds is being used to monitor our entire Infrastructure, from Server & Application to Network monitoring. SolarWinds help us maintain and respond proactively to incidents and perhaps before they happen. We have great visibility with what's going on in our Infrastructure and if devices or applications are being affected. SolarWinds gives me peace of mind knowing that I have a system that will alert me if something is wrong.
  • Server hardware monitoring.
  • Server performance, CPU utilization, memory utilization, disk spaced utilized.
  • Application monitoring gives us a clear view on how our applications are behaving and making sure they're running.
  • I believe that SolarWinds covers all the areas that I, as an engineer need to monitor to assure business continuity.
  • I have no recommendations at this point, keep up the good work.
  • Definitely troubleshooting performance issues.
  • Alerting of application/devices downtime to allow us to respond immediately to immediate the problems.
The ease of use and the GUI is way more interactive, I feel that I get more for my money. SolarWinds is a better product hands down, there's no match to the visibility SolarWinds provides.
I believe that SolarWinds is well suited for any type and business size. From my experience, I have seen SolarWinds mostly in medium to enterprise size businesses. Some companys are small and don't have the capital to purchase SolarWinds' products because it's not cheap. I also believe that it's less appropriate in an environment that is not running critical applications or services.
