Which SolarWinds product are you writing this review for?
NPM, SAM, NCM, SRM, VMAN
What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased?
Decision came from top that we needed a unified monitoring system - something to compliment our existing managed monitoring solution.
Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? Who?
We have a manged monitoring solution and they are using nimsoft
How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?
We need to validate the managed servers. We have had situations where the server was down, but the managed solution did not even know about it. So this will be to verify that they are doing the job. And if we find that they are not - then we'll have solarWinds do all of the monitoring and we'll get rid of the managed solution.
