Make monitoring key performance factors in your enterprise customized and effective

What is our primary use case?

Our installation is on-premises on a virtual machine. When we purchased NPM I was particularly interested in the features of Orion. We were going through a maturation process propagating the monitoring of applications throughout the server policy here at the university. It was more to monitor various applications that are primarily used for individual schools. For example, we have the school public health, and we have the school of nursing and they have different needs. You have all these applications like Banner and Canvas and other web-based applications that get used by particular areas. We… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The product covers our needs for the basic care and feeding of servers, whether they are physical or virtual."
  • "Technical support and releases are not particularly reliable."

What other advice do I have?

One of the things I would suggest to people considering this product and products like it is having a clear agreement upon targets of what you really want to monitor. If it is applications or servers or whatever it is, it just makes sense to come at your choices with a plan. Implement that on the front end by picking out what is important instead of coming back on the back end and trying to do things after-the-fact. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this solution as about an eight-out-of-ten.

Lets us track down brownouts in a multi-host, multi-guest virtual environment

What is our primary use case?

We have been making use of the most recent version. We use it for monitoring our uplink ports on our routers and switches. We also use it to monitor our servers and we utilize its disc space and processor memory. We do the same thing for the routers and switches.

Pros and Cons

  • "As we look to add more servers to our virtual environment and to understand the impact, the solution allows us to dig into the historical charts related to capacity planning."
  • "The solution's network discovery and node addition processes need more work."

What other advice do I have?

I would estimate there are three insfrastructure managers, with myself as the head of the IT department. There is at least one other technician working on the wide area, local area network. My advice to others is to add their nodes manually, not to let the network discovery and auto ad run. I rate SolarWinds NPM as an eight out of ten.
