Best NPM and Application monitoring software on the market.
Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor
There has definitely been a benefit from using this product to help provide reliability. Having an end to end monitor has greatly increase our visibility into application performance issues. We are able to get alerted when an application is down and be able to resolve the issue by restarting a service if it stops right in the SAM in SolarWinds.
- Quicker time to problem resolution
- Being able to restart services in the console is a plus
- We are able to notify other support teams that there services that they support have stopped. This makes us look so much more on top of things, rather than the user calling to complain that something is not running and when is it going to be fixed.
The ability to monitor scheduled tasks. Our company performs a lot of automation through windows scheduled tasks and cronjobs, monitoring those task for failures allows the IT department to not be caught off guard.
One thing that I feel is lacking in this product is the report building. I also wish the licensing was better.
