Work as part of a
small network design and planning team in a 'financial sector'
organisation. Responsible for multiple network management tools covering
areas such as; Neflow, SQL, VMware, Cisco. Orion NPM was brand new to the
company and to me when I started my current employment in 2007. It wasn't long berore
we were taking advantage of NPM's flexibility and moulding the tool to gain its
fullest potential in our environment.
Since the initial purchase of Orion NPM,
our portfolio of tools has expanded to include a second NPM poller, APM, IP SLA
monitor, NCM and engineers tool kit. Running the various SW tools on a large
network requires a little tweaking & tuning but also some creativity. Not
many IT professionals can boast creativity as part of their role.
immensely important for the community and just as equally so for Solarwinds, it
has not only enabled a healthy dialogue between Solarwinds and its customers
but for me at least, it has certainly motivated increased dialogue. I
definitely feel that with this openness everyone has something to gain.
