More LogRhythm NetMon Cons »

"It would be nice if SolarWinds could have a polling engine on the site that would collect the reporting and then manage everything itself.""It is not that stable. As a Windows software, I have seen issues with SolarWinds. The performance is slow.""The aesthetic widgets should be dynamic widgets, so the customization can be even more customizable.""Application Performance Monitoring should be included in this solution.""I would like to see integration with antivirus or other security endpoint solutions.""This solution would benefit from expanding on the capabilities within the API.""We are looking to change away from this solution because of the documentation and the solution doesn't have enough integration in our country. The documentation is too weak.""Scalability is a bit tricky because it requires more gateways in order to get the performance you may need. It also requires a lot of licensing."

That's a huge disadvantage for it.""We have a perpetual license for this solution, and my impression is that this solution is cheap.""The cost is based on the number of nodes, so it is expensive when you have a lot of them.""It is expensive.""Some solutions are open source and free.""It is relatively inexpensive compared to other products in the same category.""It's expensive and there are costs in addition to the standard licensing."
