Overall Satisfaction with Solarwinds Web Performance Monitor

We monitor several internal and external web sites and generate alerts when sites are slow or down. We monitor a number of public sites to measure general Internet performance and availability at our primary location.
  • Very detailed step performance monitoring.
  • Easy-to-use graphs and charts.
  • The recorder is clunky and must be run on a local machine.
  • It does not support frames.
  • We can be proactive in addressing down sites or slow links. Not easily measured with ROI but keeps our users happy.
  • We can use historical access and performance data to justify (or not) using on-premise vs cloud services.
  • Nagios
While free, Nagios was limited and hard to use on a Red Hat platform where we don't have the skillset.
Solarwinds support is top-notch, and while we rarely have to call them, they are always very helpful when we do.
