SolarWinds NPM Review

An extensible and scalable solution that suits our expanding network


What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for network node monitoring and alerting.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has scaled as we have grown.

What is most valuable?

It is very extensible with 'SWQL' and APIs to where we are beginning to integrate it with network automation.

This solution has a very large and active user community.

What needs improvement?

This solution would benefit from expanding on the capabilities within the API.

Network automation is a hot topic now, and SolarWinds needs to be focused on developing the product with that in mind.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two years, but it has been in my company for much longer.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We are a larger and dispersed company so there are many, many network nodes monitored by NPM. It has been able to expand and scale to manage that well.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

12.4
