    Solarwinds Review

      1. What industry is your company in?
      2. How large is your IT shop? (Small (1-250 elements); Medium (251 – 2000 elements); Large (2001 to 10000 elements); Extra-large (greater than 10,000 elements)
      3. Which SolarWinds product are you writing this review for?
      4. What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased?
      5. Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? Who?
      6. How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?


      1. Third Party Logistics (3PL)

      2. Large

      3. Server & Application Monitor (SAM) - Although we use most of the Solarwinds suite, SAM has been the most beneficial for our department.  Having insight into our server hardware and application performance has proven to be essential to our day to day business.

      4.  Our organization was trying to solve application monitoring when Solarwinds was purchased.  We found the Solarwinds did much more than monitor applications.  Now we have insight into our whole environment through NOC view.

      5.  We were recommended Solarwinds and found that it would work well in our environment.  No other products were tested.

      6.  We have been using this product since December of 2015.  One of the biggest benefits we found using this product was a deep dive into processor utilization.  With our SQL servers, we found that all of our processors were not being used.  We learned that we didn't have the correct license applied.
