The user interface was not good.

I would like to see support for non-Windows or non-Microsoft domains, especially Apache and other non-Windows servers.Support for the IBM Mainframe is needed.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.This product has no real downside unless they fail to continue development of its capabilities.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.They should incorporate more artificial intelligence. There should also be more predictive features.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
I like the pricing for this SolarWinds product.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.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.
