Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The Monitor Templates functionality allowed us to spin up monitoring with .csv files pretty easily.""There's no agent you need installed on the servers. In our environment, we have some servers out of our control so we cannot manage them. We use SiteScope to monitor the availability, the resources on the servers, etc. This allows us to do this job without installing agents so there's no need to take care of anything on the server.""The product's ability to monitor systems and applications and send alerts and create support tickets are the most valuable features of the product.""For the system environment, SiteScope can be useful."

"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.""There are many valuable features, including the network configuration manager, and the network performance manager.""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.""The more valuable feature of this solution is the Exchange feature.""I'd rate technical support at eight out of ten. They are helpful and fast.""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.""This product can monitor application environments no matter where they reside and provides capabilities for deep insight into infrastructure.""The solution is great for monitoring. If something is going wrong, we can immediately find the root cause."

Cons
"They have not kept up with browser security requirements or advances in GUIs, they switched to a corruptible database architecture instead of text config files.""Sometimes in a huge environment, I think the documentation does not provide the required calculations so you can't know what the required set up should be. You need to test.""It may lack some features other products in the category have like more detailed transaction tracking.""SiteScope isn't productive if you want to monitor RAM or if you want to monitor some URL."

"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 setup was complex. We had local support to assist us.""They should incorporate more artificial intelligence. There should also be more predictive features.""Some custom applications cannot be monitored, and a lot more applications need to be included.""It would be helpful if the solution could integrate more with the security compliances, like this IDSS, etc.""When you implement SolarWinds on a larger scale my customers complain about the speed.""This product has no real downside unless they fail to continue development of its capabilities.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"You have to pay for their "solution templates". Other tools do not charge you for knowledge-based monitoring bundles."

More Micro Focus Voltage SiteScope Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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.""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.""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.""I like the pricing for this SolarWinds product.""Price can always be lower. It is neither on the expensive side nor on the cheap side. We have worked with them for a lot of years, so we get a discount due to the size of the installation."
