SolarWinds Server and Application Monitor Scalability

Steven Khan

Scalability was an issue in the past. It wasn’t growing the environment, but rather it was maintaining it on upgrades. It used to take a long time since we have a large deployment. Now that the lightweight scalability features exists, maintenance is not time consuming. Another issue was firewalls which is on our part due to “allow nothing, request everything” policy. No product out there will ever connect agnostically when it comes to firewalls. View full review »

Scalability is good. It's modular, so you can just keep adding as you need it. View full review »

It is expensive to scale this solution, simply because of the cost of the polling engine. You can purchase unlimited IPs, but the price of an additional polling engine is $20,000 USD. That is quite a lot. We are looking into other solutions because it is just too expensive to keep scaling. We have approximately eighty users and four hundred servers. View full review »

The SolarWinds server and application monitor scales easily from one technical platform to another. It's perfect. On my last POC, we had 10,000 users and 180 staff on the solution. We don't have plans to increase usage at this time. View full review »

It's very scalable. I installed it in a lot of companies. One had more than 1,000 users. There were no problems with it. We showed an internal team how to configure it for 100 devices and then they configured the rest of the 900. View full review »
