Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

The SolarWinds Server and Application Monitor is used to provide us up-to-date information on the performance of our applications hosted on virtual servers. It's most useful to give all users visibility to critical health monitoring where Linux may not necessarily be their strength. Having a single pane of glass to track health makes troubleshooting issues quick and easy!

Pros

  • Flexible
  • Easy to use interface
  • Large product monitoring scope

Cons

  • Cost somewhat high
  • Scalable licensing could be better
  • Upgrades can be painful
  • Protect critical production applications
  • Prevent user related errors where failures may be missed
  • Overall cost savings by preventing issues
SolarWinds Server and Application Monitor is well suited to applications that are hosted across a bunch of machines, virtual or otherwise. It really does help by providing a single place where we can monitor everything at once. It's easy to identify when issues come up, and integrates well with the existing SolarWinds' ecosystem.
