What needs improvement?

There is a customization feature, but it is not a good feature. While it's somewhat good, it is too complicated. The aesthetic widgets should be dynamic widgets, so the customization can be even more customizable.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is very expensive for SolarWinds. That's a huge disadvantage for it.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I previously used PRTG, but PRTG is now forbidden in Libya. So, we switched to using SolarWinds and ManageEngine OpManager.

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking for something which is very customizable for the customization of your network, then you should go with SolarWinds. However, overall, the customization feature is also a disadvantage because it can be very complicated.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

What needs improvement?

I think there are a few bugs now. Although they give some resolution for this, we cannot share the network remotely because of our company policy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are some subscription charges that are quite heavy. I need to pay for support every year and these charges can be quite expensive. Aside from the initial cost for the tool, you need to pay additionally for support.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend WhatsUp Gold. I would rate it eight out of ten. Although the features are nice, it is quite expensive. It's not cost-effective.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also considered PRTG and SolarWinds. I do not remember the report, but we came to the conclusion that WhatsUp Gold was the system for our position.
