Thus, the model approach of the product and out-of-the-box probes, which deliver direct value.You can integrate clouds, hybrid infrastructure, and on-premise infrastructure into one product.It is the foundation for our monitoring solution.Having all of our information within one tool set; our alerts, our monitors, and the things that our operations team needs to function.It reduced cycles for a lot of quick out-of-the-box functionality.

Solarwinds has an open database that allows you to do serious integrations. It doesn't matter which service desk you have, you can implement and integrate it with SolarWinds.I'd rate technical support at eight out of ten. They are helpful and fast.The more valuable feature of this solution is the Exchange feature.The solution's most valuable features are PerfStack, AppStack and AppInsight.One of the most valuable features are the reports. They're pretty good. Also, the ease of installation and customization for the client is another feature that we value. SolarWinds has a lot of features but these are the ones I like the most. We also like that the KPIs have the ability to be preset.There are many valuable features, including the network configuration manager, and the network performance manager.The solution is end-to-end from the network and the application to the processes. Everything about the enterprise infrastructure is being covered by the solution. It's easy to use and easy to navigate and one of the leaders among monitoring solutions.Monitoring the components on your devices with out of the box monitors or the ability to create new ones (SAM)

Cons
There is also room for improvement in the reporting. It is not really good enough, according to our customers. So what we now usually do is use Power BI to get them the kinds of reports they want.Reporting capability can be improved especially when it comes to availability.​We want to see more investment in the UI and the dashboard.How we can get more native information from CA's solutions.They need to continue to advance the filter capabilities, and provide more input fields.I would like to see auditability. We've built our own audit functionality to ensure that every CI has the desired model configuration applied to it. And we run that on a daily basis. If that became part of the product, I think it might be a little bit less intensive in terms of resource, because we're doing it with scripts.It is a little complex to use versus other softwares.The biggest feature that I've been hoping they would enhance on is inventory management: things like adding/removing nodes.

When you implement SolarWinds on a larger scale my customers complain about the speed.It would be helpful if the solution could integrate more with the security compliances, like this IDSS, etc.Some custom applications cannot be monitored, and a lot more applications need to be included.The solution should implement something like a network configuration manager, or some baseline for server configuration. Many of my customers need a recommendation for server configuration. Implementing that as a feature would be perfect for them.They should incorporate more artificial intelligence. There should also be more predictive features.The setup was complex. We had local support to assist us.There is one feature that is a report writer. And they are currently trying to take it out from being a stand-alone application and integrating to the web. This doesn't give us the flexibility and it doesn't expand what we can get when it comes to reporting. So, putting it on the web is going to make it difficult to get some information. Leaving it where it is now will help us a lot.

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.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.Understanding the counts of objects to monitor will determine the licensing need. In terms of pricing, it’s not cheap but it’s not expensive as larger vendors whose products don’t have all the features or integrations.
