Why do I recommend this product?
As compared with other products we found Solarwinds to be more robust and includes more powerful functions including:
-Scheduled scan of the network automatically discovers network devices and monitors the IP of the device, the name, machine type and polling method.
-Support multiple vendors so it will support lots of devices to be scanned.
-Mobile view for IPHONE, BLACKBERRY and ANDROID
-Microsoft active directory integration
For the above reasons our company has chosen it instead of Angry IP Scanner or solar winds engineering toolset.
Room for Improvement:
-New, web-based interface lacks some features of traditional GUI.
-Increases the processor load if it operated for a period of time.
Solarwinds is a strong company in the network monitoring, management and configuration market -- it has a lot of products and one of the most famous is solarwinds TFTP server. Solarwinds engineering toolset is a set of products that include all monitoring and management network programs combined in one software package. Solarwinds network performance monitor is a strong product that combines management (SNMP), monitoring (SYSLOG) and configuration of routers and switches. It is also very effective to analyze the link bandwidth and network device performance such as CPU utilization and memory.
