Best Off-Label Uses for Solarwinds Products

Solarwinds has awesome tools for monitoring and managing your environment, it's true, but anyone given tools capable of doing things will find things for them to do.

  • SAM can monitor anything, but what's the weirdest thing you've made it monitor?
  • We had an SE create a WPM transaction to order a sandwich from Jimmy Johns: push a button, get a sandwich!  What could you use WPM for?
  • Create a game like NCM Roulette: every [time interval] have NCM pick a random device, pick a random port, and shut that port down!  Or change a VLAN tag!  Fun for all ages?

Anyway, any off-kilter-but-clever (or not so clever) uses of the Solarwinds products in your environment?
