About Network Performance Monitor

SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) is a cloud-based network monitoring solution that enables users to detect, diagnose, and resolve network performance issues. The solution allows users to design a customizable topology for the entire network framework and tracks failure events, system checks, performance issues and more. NPM enables businesses to create a service-oriented view of their IT infrastructure and identify key network issues. NPM automatically discovers, maps, and monitors every device within a network and presents interactive charts, graphs, and tables in a fully customizable web interface. IT administrators and users can then collect, store and analyze performance data from these devices to determine network efficiency and resolve issues. NPM offers a web-based dashboard for visualizing and monitoring real-time system health and performance metrics. The solution also offers fault, performance, and availability monitoring as well as hop-by-hop critical path analysis, cross-stack network data correlation, customizable topology and dependency-aware alerts.

Excellent system for monitoring

Pros

This has to be by far the best networking and services monitoring tool I have ever used. It is rich in features and it just works.

Cons

It is an amazing system and I would recommend to anyone. It is however a little time consuming to set it up, for some people even a little challenging.

My NPM for critical NOC Monitoring and its operations

NPM is the best solution when it comes to performance monitoring as for sure no other product can beat in terms of monitoring like Netflow, web filtering, interface, CPU, bandwidth, disk, servers, DB, etc... and many more.
Even though it is best but has complications in learning and budget issues.

Pros

if there is something that everyone is interested in this product is its capability and performance. It makes network engineers' jobs easy and to identify errors quickly and focus on things that were really required.
Analysis of network firewalls on a very high basis like bandwidth utilization, Netflow, web filter, etc.. for engineers to analyze and identify when any issue comes up.

Cons

Budget is always an issue so many times after POC clients prefer for alternate solutions as it is best in capabilities of monitoring but its concerns about the budget when it comes SMB customers especially.

Alternatives Considered

ManageEngine OpManager and PRTG

Reasons for Switching to Network Performance Monitor

As the product is given more insights into the network for deep analysis when it comes to very big infrastructure makes Network team jobs easy to identify and troubleshooting. Product is capable of holding such information which we cannot identify with other products. Expect budget concerns NPM is best for the NOC team with any second thought.

SolarWinds NPM feels outdated and performance is lacking

I'd rate this product a 3/5. It does what you need it to but it requires more administration that it should and the performance is poor.

Pros

The tool does what you need it to do from a network performance standpoint. The features allow your typical network monitoring, including devices applications and services. As such it helps to troubleshoot and avoid unnecessary downtime.

Cons

Product feels dated and the performance is pretty bad when compared to other tools out there that are cheaper

Solarwinds npm

I have used multiple network monitoring softwares and there is no comparison with the support and quality of software with SolarWinds. A perfect monitoring tool with out of the box reporting and alerting with extreme customizations.

Pros

I have been using this software for a very long time and its graphical representations and reporting is so top notch and its very easy to install, configure, and troubleshoot and interact with highly skilled individuals on its Thwack Community and share and discuss new ideas and look for guidance/assistance and documentation with labs and we can collect points to exchange with gifts and certification vouchers.

Cons

Its a bit costly and fortigate firewalls are not supported completely to provide its site to site vpn details like it shows for cisco asa. It would be great to be able to monior our vpn and who gets in and out of our network.

Alternatives Considered

ManageEngine OpManager

Reasons for Choosing Network Performance Monitor

To get more visibility and quality with more customization in reporting and alerting with a vast number of supported devices.

Reasons for Switching to Network Performance Monitor

More customization and better visibility and very user friendly.
