SolarWinds NPM Valuable Features

A.J. DiLorenzo
Senior Systems Administrator at Privia Health
I believe the ease of setup and use, including everything, from the initial installation to the discovery of devices is the most valuable. The advanced alerting and notifications capabilities are helpful as well. Devices can be discovered automatically on a schedule, and grouped by vendor automatically, which makes it very easy to track down devices. The customizable dashboards and reporting are flexible and tend to come in handy as well. View full review »

When you buy the product, there's a lot of things. You can configure a lot. There's some variable in the report so you can customize the alert that you get or what triggers you want to generate the alert. It is really very flexible. Reporting is also quite nice. You can write your own SQL. Of course, if you have a small team and you have so many sites to monitor, then the alerts will help you already. Let's say you're monitoring MPRs out there, you know that the neighbor route could go down, so you know the site is already on a secondary link instead of primary. You are aware of what's going on, or if things go down, then you can react quickly. View full review »

One of the best features is the reports feature. We can get an editor's report for the last five minutes, fifteen minutes, hour, month, or more. And, the correlation data that we can get from the different resources of data from routing, routers, swtitches and samples is really a benefit. View full review »
