Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Virtualization Manager

Currently, segments of the company are using SolarWinds Virtualization Manager. This is the primary monitoring tool.
  • Monitoring of our devices
  • Quick access to all info on status
  • Repository for historical status
  • Maybe more info on discovery failures on what failed rather than coded info
  • A phone app if it's not already available
  • Multi-view home screen to view selected devices as a group and flip between--Tshoot tool
  • Better insight to each device via discovery
  • Real-time alerts on device status
  • False positives on alerts are difficult to remove
If you used these two products, you know the difference. It's too vast to explain here. PRTG does have its place in a network, but SolarWinds is the high bar in this space.
SolarWinds Virtualization Manager is well suited for monitoring less appropriate for MAC-level work on individual devices. It's easier to use the CLI for these tasks.
