A Performance Monitor, Control Virtual Environments, and helps you build your CMDB

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for centralized monitoring of the server performance to ensure that the servers have proactive monitoring, CPU utilization, memory, and performance across the monitoring. SolarWinds was suggested to our clients running a mid-size infrastructure, with budget constraints and can't afford IBM, Broadcom, or Microsoft.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "When you implement SolarWinds on a larger scale my customers complain about the speed."

What other advice do I have?

Improvements come as we are moving forward. Requirements also change with time. There were times when we used to be a complete physical infrastructure.

I also use ManageEngine to research and compare CF quotas and then appraise them so I can propose to the customer which solution is suitable for their organization. For a small organization, I think ManageEngine is pretty… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The feature that I have found most valuable in ManageEngine Applications Manager is its dashboard."
  • "The information provided by ManageEngine is not deep-dive like IBM and CA provide."

What other advice do I have?

Before I recommend ManageEngine to a customer, I first look at the company size and their application requirements. If the size of the company is small or medium, I will propose ManageEngine. Secondly, I examine the capability of the organization. For example, if it is just an IT operation but they don't have an internal developer or systems expert, I might suggest using ManageEngine, but I also might recommend CA, AppDynamics, or Dynatrace. Lastly, I would examine the complexity of the application. If the application is not complex, I would recommend it. For example, if the application only…
