More CA Cross-Enterprise Application Performance Management Pros »

"The more valuable feature of this solution is the Exchange feature.""I'd rate technical support at eight out of ten.

It doesn't matter which service desk you have, you can implement and integrate it with SolarWinds.""This product can monitor application environments no matter where they reside and provides capabilities for deep insight into infrastructure.""The solution is great for monitoring. If something is going wrong, we can immediately find the root cause.""The most valuable feature is the Access Rights Manager.""The most valuable feature is application monitoring.""It's good at monitoring system-specific things like ports, services."

Cons
"The UI could be better. When I look at the dashboard, for example, the information looks cluttered and unorganized."

More CA Cross-Enterprise Application Performance Management Cons »

"Some custom applications cannot be monitored, and a lot more applications need to be included.""It would be helpful if the solution could integrate more with the security compliances, like this IDSS, etc.""When you implement SolarWinds on a larger scale my customers complain about the speed.""This product has no real downside unless they fail to continue development of its capabilities.""The templates could use improvement. Currently, they are quite complex. They should have drag-and-drop functionality instead. It would make it easier to use.""Support for the IBM Mainframe is needed.""I would like to see support for non-Windows or non-Microsoft domains, especially Apache and other non-Windows servers.""It lacks a user experience for measuring things like the end-to-end time for which a user waits for a specific response in the system. In the application layer, it has some very basic stuff. You have to build your own with manuscripts and things like that."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"The product might cost you $30,000 USD to buy, but scaling this solution requires the purchase of additional polling engines at $20,000 USD each.""The licenses start from USD 3000.00 and go up to USD 20,000.00 for the year. It's a perpetual license. Nothing is free in SolarWinds, anything that you need is an additional cost.""Pricing is inexpensive, starting at 2440 euros. For that, you get the ability to monitor a couple of nodes and one year of maintenance and support.""I like the pricing for this SolarWinds product.""Price can always be lower. It is neither on the expensive side nor on the cheap side. We have worked with them for a lot of years, so we get a discount due to the size of the installation."
