Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

It is our one-stop shop for monitoring all of our nodes. SolarWinds Server & Application Manager (SAM) is a great tool that really gets under the hood of the OS and APP layer and can give you some really good detailed information about your environment.
  • It can do the basics like alert on up/down but you can go way past that and get very detailed metrics and run reports and/or trigger and from there do just about anything like reboot a server or run a PowerShell script
  • The product is always getting better and they listen to their customers and make changes
  • I like a single pane of glass and it's getting closer and closer to that
  • The application mapping needs a lot of improvement and I can't wait to see it mature
  • I really like the AppInsight tools as that really shines light on IIS
  • Need way better O365 integration and visibility
  • It tells us before something breaks so we can fix it
  • You can do a ton with this product but you also don't want to alert on every little thing so you have to ask the business owners what they truly want to be alerted on
I think this tool can be used for small and large companies. You don't really need a full time admin of SW to administer it and only needs a reboot from time to time to keep the resources purring along.
