SolarWinds has recently introduced a change, or rather a payment option to pay on a monthly basis.

The licensing process is pretty simple. it's not too complex.

There is a permanent license and also a subscription level which has annual fees. The price of the solution is fair.

It seemed that they nickeled and dimed you for everything that you were doing. There are a lot of sub-products and it just continued to increase the price.

The product compares well against all the other monitoring software out there. It is not overpriced at all.

The solution is expensive and may not be very affordable for startups or smaller companies.

I renewed the licenses around two-and-a-half to three years ago and do not have the relevant numbers off the top of my head.

The licensing is based on the number of nodes, interfaces, and volumes.

It is too expensive.

I do not handle the negotiations on pricing, so that is outside my realm of influence. I know that our initial purchase was about $200,000.

Our annual maintenance fee is USD $15,000.

I don't deal with licensing or pricing, so I wouldn't be able to guess how much we pay for the services or if they are monthly or yearly. I'm not sure what our license agreement looks like.

I find that the pricing is acceptable.

I no longer work at the company that uses Solar Winds, so I don't have information about what they were paying or what they pay now. The current package I'm using myself is a free package as I do a comparison between PRTG and SolarWinds.

We have a perpetual license for this solution, and my impression is that this solution is cheap.

The pricing needs to be improved. It is too high. One full engine costs around $10 000, which is why we don't have high availability right now.

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

You have to license it per year, for the support. You don't really need to have support once you've already set it up. Once you install SolarWinds, you can skip on the licensing. It will still work.
