Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

I was working with the IT department using SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor to monitor our company's server environment and alerts. By using the tool, we are enabled to maintain at the level to be informed of the status of our servers at all times. It also enables us to monitor SQL and other apps.
  • Quick insights.
  • Continuous monitoring.
  • Alerts.
  • No auto-tuning.
  • A bit clunky.
  • Low flow visibility.
  • Resolves issues quickly.
  • Low investment.
  • Short learning curve.
Compared to New Relic, SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor definitely is a better option and a better tool to use due to it is more user friendly despite the poor UI of SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor. Because of the above reason, my company is switching from New Relic to SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor.
SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor is well suited for start-ups and small IT departments when the budget is limited, despite the clunky and low visibility issues that it has. The tool gives you the basic monitoring work that you need at a fairly low cost. After all, you get what you pay for.

Overall, it is a pretty useful tool that can help you navigate the application status via application health overview map and you can quickly check how many apps are still up running and how many of them are having issues. Apart from that you can also change the usage percentage for CPU and memory.
