"One feature I like about CA Performance Management is the certification of the devices."

More DX Performance Management Pros »

"This solution gives us important information about the utilization of protocols, particularly in terms of how often they are used.""I like that it is able to monitor multiple devices and it's vendor-agnostic.""The dashboard alerts me when a critical device goes off the network.""In terms of the implementation, we've actually used SAM, the server and application monitoring tools. The network configuration tools are very useful in terms of bulk upgrading switches and infrastructure. Also, the Network Traffic Analyzer was extremely useful to track down errant users soaking up bandwidth.""With SolarWinds, we are now able to accurately gauge bandwidth consumption.""The performance analysis is a valuable feature. With the performance analyzer, we can see the realtime monitoring, the realtime performance, and historical performance on specific components like virtualization storage, CPU, servers and network equipment.""The solution's most valuable feature is its traffic analysis.""The program is scalable enough for our usage."

"This solution is not very scalable."

More DX Performance Management Cons »

"I would like to see more training videos and additional material for learning how to use this solution.""This solution would benefit from having more security-based communications between the actual devices and the software itself.""Customer Support is quite complex.""The problem is that SolarWinds is trying to bolt in too much and that can leave bugs, which you have to then sort out, leaving the product unstable. SolarWinds needs to try and slow down and improve the stability of the product, as opposed to bringing out more and more features.""The licensing should be more realistic so that we can adjust the number of nodes according to my needs, rather than in fixed increments.""The price of the solution is a bit high for our clients. They should consider adjusting their price model.""Technical support needs improvement.""It is very slow to pick the dynamics of the network."
