What is most valuable?

In terms of the implementation, we've actually used SAM, the server and application monitoring tools. The network configuration tools are very useful in terms of bulk upgrading switches and infrastructure. Also, the Network Traffic Analyzer… more»

What needs improvement?

The biggest problem with SolarWinds is that they've tried to integrate a lot into the core modules. I think it would actually really benefit if they are more focused. It's packing a lot of technology in now, it's very confusing areas in… more»

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

There are additional costs if one wishes to purchase other modules or increase the available functionality then you can pay for additional licensing options. It gets very expensive once you actually decide to scale the infrastructure but if… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were previously using Zabbix. We also looked at alternative products such as Nagios, but SolarWinds was actually decided on only because it's got a lovely graphical interface, it's easy to use, has powerful reporting features, and… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to someone considering this solution would be to look on the THWACK forums, which is the SolarWinds community support. It's a user support forum. I'd pose lots of questions on THWACK and I'd take advantage of the 30-day trial as… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ping going out every second, which gives us almost instantaneous alerting. The user interface allows us to sort according to the source of… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have Statseeker alerts emailed to a Google group, and one of the members of that group is a Slack integration. This means that we get instant alerts on Slack, from… more»

What needs improvement?

This solution would be improved with better automatic discovery for ping-only devices. Every time we add an access point, which is a ping-only device, we also have to… more»

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

We receive discounted pricing for being an educational user. Compared to other solutions such as Zabbix and AKiPS, this solution is very well priced.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have been using Statseeker the entire time that I have been with the company.

What other advice do I have?

If this solution offers a trial then I would suggest giving it a try. In my experience, there is not much better than this. We set a two-minute bundle time so that we… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have looked at a couple of other solutions like Zabbix and AKiPS, and Statseeker has consistently underpriced everybody.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is an all-in-one monitoring system. It handles a server, network devices, log management, and remote connections. Some other features we find valuable are: * Easy… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has improved our organization because we gain time by simplifying the root cause analysis. We can easily operate monitoring activities, which decreases operational costs. The features… more»

What needs improvement?

The automation for remediation needs to be improved. Improvements are needed for server and network discovery, including service-based discovery. I would like to see the following features in the next… more»

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

Pandora FMS is easy to implement and the pricing of licenses is competitive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I changed solutions because Pandora FMS is an all-in-one solution that is cost-efficient.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated several products including Nagios XI, HP OpenView, Zabbix, and ManageEngine.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of the solution was the ability to see how the connection quality is between the sites and get an alert if it was turning bad.

What needs improvement?

We didn't use the solution for that long, so it's hard to remember what we didn't like about the solution. It would be nice if the solution covered other areas like server monitoring.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I've previously used PRTG and Zabbix, among others. They are a little bit different because this solution is really focused on network quality.

What other advice do I have?

We used the public cloud deployment model. I'd recommend the solution and advise others to check to see if it fits with their environment even if they're using some other monitoring solution. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

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… more»

How has it helped my organization?

If we need to plan the network, or measure our network utilization, SolarWinds enables us to do so.

What needs improvement?

It would be nice to manage all network devces from just one single platform, instead of going to different platforms.

What other advice do I have?

I would like to see this product becoming more flexible in the future. In addition, integration with other solutions would be helpful.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I am looking at other solutions, to compare. For example, I am currently looking at ManageEngine OpManager. We also looked at Zabbix
