    NPM review

      • What industry is your company in?

      I work in a Rural hospital as part of a larger provincial network.


      • 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)

      Our IT shop consists of around 250 people supporting thousands of users across the province


      • Which SolarWinds product are you writing this review for?

      I am reviewing NPM.


      • What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased?

      We are trying to find and eliminate bottlenecks.


      • Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? Who?

      Other solutions were considered, such as Heroix, and Nagios, but Solarwinds appears to be the gold standard for network monitoring, for good reason.


      • How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?

      Our production environment allows us to easily see where the bandwidth bottlenecks are and troubleshoot network issues.  The Orion suite of tools allows you to manage your environment, and can be set up to give you automated backups, alerts on changes to the configuration on your network, and can alert you to problems in performance that you may not have even realized existed.
