We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is NetFlow."
"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."
"SolarWinds has improved our organization because whenever a device is down, we get an alert."
"The most valuable feature is the alarm that is set up to trigger based on bandwidth utilization."
"The monitoring is perfect, showing you the details for the utilization of resources and network bandwidth."
"The security should be improved."
"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."
"It does not flow. It cannot do our metric performance monitoring. So it is very limited. They can do it but in a very limited fashion. It is only good for SNMP-based alerts."
"This solution does not do a very good job when I am trying to look deeper into my internal network, in particular with respect to individual ports."
"The Atlas module that is used for building the network map is very bad."
"The licensing for this solution is based on the number of nodes."
"The price of this solution is exceptional."
"While the pricing is fair, it could be better."
"The pricing is reasonable."
"We pay yearly, and we are happy with its price."
