Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor
It is being used to monitor servers and application metrics all over the many Infosys clients' IT environments. I use it to gather metrics of servers CPU, Memory, Disk, and much more and alert on them. Also, it is very useful to monitor application processes and performance counters and set up an alert for them.
- We have unlimited licenses and we are monitoring more than 4000 nodes.
- So, it provides a good return on investment.
We selected SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor over AppDynamics because SolarWinds product suited our needs better. We needed better infrastructure monitoring and internal application monitoring brought from other vendors. If we wanted to monitor an application that was being developed by our company and we needed to track every transaction of it then we would have gone for AppDynamics, but SolarWinds was a better fit for our use case.
SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor is well suited for the environment where we need to monitor infrastructure architecture and applications purchased from other vendors. It is not suitable to monitor the applications made by the organization itself as it doesn't give full stack trace and is unable to monitor business transactions.
SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor Feature Ratings
This best tool for servers infrastructure monitoring .It is also very good for Applications monitoring but ,i have deducted 2 points because there is no stack trace or code level monitoring that can be done by it .But this tool is very easy to use and if you are not developing applications in house and only monitoring third party applications then this is the best tool to monitor those .
