Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor
Solarwinds is being utilized by our IT department. Both Infrastructure and Application owners use the application. It addresses several areas of concern for us. The most addressed issue that it serves is up/down of server and networking gear as well as CPU and memory utilization across 4 data-centers. Also, we have replaced a couple of other monitoring solutions with Solarwinds product. The latest utilized Solarwind product is WPM.
- Up/Down alerts, memory, and CPU utilization alerting.
- Ease of use.
- Hardware monitoring.
- Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnect and Chassis monitoring.
- Alert testing to see which servers would be impacted.
- No additional ability to have monitors based on scripts.
We have had some issues trying to monitor UCS Blades and Fabric interconnects core infrastructure. It does a great job of monitoring each individual server but lacks the ability to understand which FI is in standby and which one is active. It would be nice to have this functionality built in.
