Just to throw my 2 cents in - I've mentioned this elsewhere - I'd really like to see the scan come up with status monitors (up/down) for the interfaces the same way that the bandwidth monitors come up. If an interface drops, the bandwidth just drops to zero but nothing alarms unless you have manually added all the up/down monitors. Also, a selectable monitor for tracking interface errors (both in and out) would be cool too. That's another one I've had to add manually to each interface I need to monitor.
3. Define customized device types. This will help organize data in reports.
While you are at it please dont forget to introduce custom selection of table summary: Average OR Total. At the moment you cant select this at all and e.g. monitoring power usage of 20 device shows the average as summary while you would need the total of all device but the average per month.

+1. I've also asked for this one before. It seems crazy that a network monitoring solution doesn't by default tell you when a network interface goes down. Almost as crazy as the length of time it takes for these glaring omissions to be rectified, if ever.
Have you tried using the Exchange 2008 Monitor against your Exchange 2010 server?
As far as I know, they both use the same WMI classes.
Let me know,

I'm currently evaluating ipMonitor for my company (great product, by the way!), do you have any idea when the next version is coming out, and if features #4 ("templatized" deployment) and #7 (printer monitor) will be included?
Hi Ffreire - thakns for your input in IpM - we are currently working on those features - but we can't speak to release dates at SolarWinds. Right now, we are planning on both those features being included, but of course, they could always get pushed back if things change throughout the development cycle. I know we can be frustratingly vague around here - but this is why.
