Which SolarWinds product are you writing this review for?
What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased?
We didn't have a product to monitor our virtulization envirnment. Being a small shop we do not have vCenter, but needed to monitor the ESX servers.
Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? Who?
No one in the price point.
How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?
Within a week, we identified overallocated servers. There were servers with 8 CPU, but the average CPU usage was less then 5%. Insane. We were able to put a stop to that and freed up resources to build a dozen more servers without purchasing additional hardware. Made the boss happy.
