What is most valuable?

I love the GUI. Almost everything is accessible through the web interface. It is very user-friendly. It is easy to drag and drop resources wherever you want them. NPM also includes additional features that come in handy, such as a web SSH... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I have been able to customize so many things using SolarWinds. I have set up baseline configurations and quickly remediated devices against them. I am using the SYSLOG and trap functions for my non-priority devices. I have NetPath set up to... more»

What needs improvement?

I think there needs to be more granularity in the permission sets in almost all of the SolarWinds products. I want to be able to specify almost everything that a specific user group can do. I am being a little picky with this, as there are... more»

What do you think of Spiceworks?

Valuable Features Network Helpdesk • Improvements to My Organization Tracking common issues has been improved. • Room for Improvement I don't really use anything besides the free stuff so I can't say. It does, however, require help-desk and minor server/firewall config XP experience to set up. • Use of Solution I've used it for two years. • Deployment Issues There have been no issues with the deployment. • Stability Issues There have been no issues with its stability. • Scalability Issues There have been no issues scaling it. • Customer Service and Technical Support Customer Service: I've never had to contact them.

What is most valuable?

ITRS can define rules to alert when certain parameters that you monitor breach a threshold. Rules can be configured to fire recovery actions automatically to clear the alert. However, if the alert persists for an extended period, then it has... more»

How has it helped my organization?

ITRS helps us to identify a lot of production issues proactively. E.g., ITRS alerts for a critical process memory that grows beyond the configured threshold limits. The limits are set to alert before the process crashes. This allows support... more»

What needs improvement?

ITRS has setup XML that holds the entire monitoring configuration. Only the last 10 versions of the setup XML is saved locally on the gateway server. These 10 versions get overwritten quite easily when you are working with a big configuration... more»

What do you think of HPE OneView?

Valuable Features The most valuable feature is the capability it provides to implement automation and write automation scripts. This is what the world is going after. • Improvements to My Organization We deliver faster now. • Room for Improvement Sometimes it gets slow, so it doesn’t always perform well. I think it's a work in progress. • Stability Issues Every product has it's bugs, but they are getting fixed. • Customer Service and Technical Support Technical support was very useful. For me, when you are choosing a product, good technical support is a must. • Previous Solutions We were using HPE SIM. That's fairly buggy. It's okay for monitoring hardware, but it's a bit of a drama for other things. • Initial Setup The initial setup was straightforward,...

Principle Systems Engineer at a Consumer Goods with 501-1,000 employees
Nov 06 2017

What is most valuable?

Integration with a wide variety of infrastructure systems is the most valuable feature; most critical to us was VMware integration and Citrix NetScaler integration. We use a lot of other products with LM, as well, but the biggest gaps we had... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Good, accurate dashboards: I can pull data from multiple sources, whether it is VMware CPU Ready stats, server CPU utilization, application metrics (MySQL, etc.), load balancer metrics, and even 3PAR storage metrics and show them all in one... more»

What needs improvement?

I much prefer the older UI for managing devices and dashboards. They gave assurances that they would not retire the old UI before making it feature parity with the new UI, but they did not follow through with that. I was a VERY happy customer... more»

District Technology at a K-12 educational company or school with 1,001-5,000 employees
Feb 28 2018

What is most valuable?

The feature which I like the most would have to be the GUI. At first, I was put off, as I felt it was too complex or busy. Upon using it to setup devices, I found it was well laid out and has come a long way.

How has it helped my organization?

Before we didn't really have a centrally managed monitoring solution, so adding this product has been a blessing as we are able to actively monitor and react accordingly. Being able to monitor almost any device in one location is extremely... more»

What needs improvement?

I wish it had more options for personalizing the product, such as being able to include your company's logo without editing text files. More templates for specific devices.
