Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor
We use SW to monitor all our of routers, switches, servers, and applications. We baseline our gear and actively alert on thresholds, CPU, memory, storage and bandwidth utilization. We have a large SQL environment and we purchased the SQL modules which provide us with eyes into our databases and their performance.
- Monitoring gives us the ability to view the servers in real-time.
- We also have the ability to look at the servers/applications historically.
- We haven't come across anything that is lacking.
- It has helped us limit the amount of staff needed to support our environment.
Solarwinds was in the environment when I started at MoMA. I had used it in the past so didn't feel the need to look at another product.
