I use it for monitoring the entire network for the company. We oversee nodes down, we oversee devices heading up to crossing the threshold for CPU usage. We oversee power so power backups on the switches, we oversee if they're down or if they're failing. We oversee any node down or any router from any vendor.The features we find most valuable is the configuration backup automation, the configuration compliance, the security vulnerability detection and upgrading devices.Compared to other vendors, like NetBrain, managing the solution is easy. They made it very user-friendly.The most valuable features the solution offers are compliance, reliability, and information about reliability.We push all our configurations to the servers with ease and the logs capture almost all the transactions needed for an internal audit.

The network logs could be improved. When the error logs come across with those false positive alarms in the error logs.The Network Configuration Manager needs to improve the access control list compliance.On NCM, reporting could be a bit better. It's completely become just one report. When I try to create a custom report, the solution just commits old server data.The interface of solar winds could be improved.We want to be able to store it in a data warehouse format and integrate it with Google single sign-on.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
With a minimal bundle, we pay about $3000 a year in licensing costs. If you have multiple devices in your network, you must buy the bundle, which is 100% identical for your infrastructure. If you have 15 devices, you need 15 licenses, for example. That's one bundle. You don't pay for anything over and above that.
