3.- Which SolarWinds product are you writing this review for?
We have orion Platform 2015.1.3 with Network Performance Monitor, Integrated Virtual INfrastructure Monitor & NetFlow Traffic Analyzer.
4.- What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased?
We needed more control across our network, and we were more interested in netflow analyzer than in the other rest of tools.
5.-Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? Who?
Yes. In fact, we have another product for monitoring & SNMP configs, because we consider it is simplest to config than Solarwinds. Every platform has their good and bad things
6.- How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?
We specially use Netflow Traffic Analyzer, because is a very powerful tool for us. We have configured like a SNMP traps & netflow receiver in our routers, and so many times it has saved my bacon It is very useful for when you don't have so much information about a problem across our big network.
