Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Virtualization Manager

I use VMAN to monitor VMware and Hyper-V managed services environments for a number of companies. It allows for a great breadth of visibility across all of our virtual hosts that no other module of SolarWinds allows. It is an integral and fundamental part of the monitoring solution that our clients purchase.
  • Capacity planning in storage.
  • Recommendations to improve environments.
  • Separate VMWare and Hyper V specific tools.
  • Quick identification of problems on hosts that otherwise would be missed.
  • Speed of access to metrics on hosts.
  • Less disruptions to customers as problems are dealt with before customers notice them.
This is a great troubleshooting tool when there is an error you aren't familiar with, you can marry up seemingly unrelated metrics to find solutions.
It is suited to monitor VM host environments, but without SAM and NPM does not have the specifics to monitor the VMs inside the environments. Not that it should have this, those products handle that very well, but for information's sake, it stops at the generality of Hosts and their needs.
