"Amazing Network Monitoring Tool"

What do you like best?

If you are looking for a network monitoring tool, this is the best fit. The user interface is very easy and the dashboard is loaded with options from basic to advanced. The reporting is another great plus to this tool, the reports are very in-depth and informative ranging from current date to very old historical data as well. We can keep a watch on the Network traffic, number of requests coming in and going out, CPU Usage and almost anything that you may need to monitor over the network.

What do you dislike?

It's very well built tool, hard to find any issues in it. The only problem is they need to come up with better documentation to explain all the features which they have put in and keep updating as well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It serves to monitor CPU, Network Monitoring and Managing the IP's. Data backup is also very fast and effective. Vastly increased our ability to provide better service to our end users.

"efficient management of the web environment"

What do you like best?

SolarWinds has a very fast response time and alert which allows you to be effectively informed of what happens in your web environment. In addition, its excellent toolbar allows you to decite individual switch port errors as well as discard reports among many other things. Finally, the reatreo of networks on public connections is a very useful tool when it is used in a large company.

What do you dislike?

Solarwinds has a lot of tools but unfortunately there are some that really do not have much use as is the case of the alert of unknown status which are little used due to the little margin of utility they offer. In addition to this, the software could make a quantum leap if it improved the internal resource categories in order to efficiently isolate and track specific segments.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a software with high performance capable of being very profitable in any company, its network performance monitor is very good, especially in internal network environments where the response time must be important. SolarWinds is an interensante software with great tools that can improve the web environment of any company in an efficient way.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use solard winds to track in real time the different jumps that are generated in the network in several endpoints, through this we can have a greater resolution of problems. In addition SolarWinds also has an internal use in our company which is to help us monitor the latency as well as the time of activity between our different web segments

What Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

I like how this has various tools and helps with daily network management. The tools are very versatile and help to monitor a variety of devices such as the CPU. My fav is the ease of monitoring route, switches, and pbx servers.

It is a very useful tool. However that being said, it can be very pricey. I haven’t seen a lot of departments in my company use it due to the high cost. Hopefully that will change over time. Nonetheless I don’t have many things that I dislike about this.

It is very quick and easy to setup. You can be running reports and dashboard monitoring within a few hours.

I do not really dislike anything. The only thing I could see someone griping about would be that they offer so much that it could be a little over whelming if they've never used tools like this before.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using the Network Performance monitoring more than anything else. We watch different traffic and usages.
