Powerful tool for DBAs with support for Active Directory
What is our primary use case?
We are a distributor and solution provider, and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients. It is used for monitoring the performance of applications and infrastructure.
Pros and Cons
"The most valuable feature is the Access Rights Manager."
"Support for the IBM Mainframe is needed."
What other advice do I have?
There are several tools included in this solution including AppStack (Application Stack Management), PerfStack (Performance Analysis), and NetPath (Network Path Analysis). This is an open platform so if there is something that it does not support then you can write your own scripts. You have the ability to include metrics from different systems, which is very good. In summary, I like this product and I recommend it. SolarWinds is one of the best products on the market and if they eventually support the IBM Mainframe then it will be perfect. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
