Overall Satisfaction with Solarwinds Storage Resource Monitor

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor allows us to see at a glance all of the metrics that are available on our storage devices. Without this tool we would either have to connect to the CLI and look for specific things or build scripts and custom dashboards on our own. This makes monitoring and reviewing much easier.
  • Asset inventory for storage
  • Predicting the future usage
  • Performance metrics
  • Revealing the internal statistics such as temperatures and hardware condition
  • The list of devices covers the most popular, but adding more types of devices is always helpful
  • Device types make it difficult to connect some times (on the vendor side) but the product does a good job, configuration could be easier for setting up devices.
  • With SRM we have proactively monitored devices to stay ahead of data growth
  • SRM makes monitoring of internal asset condition much easier
  • SRM make monitoring of live statistics much easier.
We have a full suite of SolarWinds products and did not evaluate other options for a full package. For selective monitoring we log into the devices, but this has made that much easier as we have a dashboard rather than logging into devices one at a time.
If you have rare, very old or very uncommon devices you may need to look elsewhere, but if you are using current tech then this product probably supports your devices.
