Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

SolarWinds Server and Application Monitor is being used effectively in our organization to monitor applications, databases, processes, services, etc. We are having multiple instances across the globe with separate instances being procured in each region. We are ble to manage and monitor entire customer applications, servers, etc. in an easy way.

  • Easy to create templates.
  • Easy to deploy templates.
  • Easy to manage templates.
  • It covers lot of things for monitoring server and application level parameters.
  • As I have experienced while monitoring processes, it should give the exact process name while selecting for Linux/Unix related systems.
  • Oracle database monitoring requires lot of work to do.
  • Oracle database monitoring requires permissions for a lot of other views or tables, which we have to mention explicitly for component monitors. But the documentation mentions the views, which varies from views for component monitors.
  • Cost wise its very cheap compared with other vendor products.
  • Easy to manage applications with a click.
  • Easy to configure and complete the application monitoring in less time, thus saving a lot of time and human efforts involved, which saves customers a lot of money.
