A cloud solution for warehousing with a troubleshooting feature
The initial setup is straightforward. It's based on user requirements. We also conduct heat mapping using a couple of tools. The only requirement is to understand the technical or configuration aspects from the user's end and then configure it. Mist takes no more than 15 to 20 minutes for a particular deployment. You need to understand the end user's environment and have a concrete plan on whether it's a greenfield installation or an existing one, considering the density and height. Based on that, we need to develop a passive heat map. Then, you need to discuss with the user to understand exactly what needs to be configured and what they require in their environment. Based on that, you can proceed with the installation. Additionally, you can perform post-installation heat mapping to ensure it matches the earlier heat map. I rate the initial setup an eight out of ten, where one is difficult, and ten is easy.

A straightforward setup that's easy to manage and quick to deploy
We primarily use the solution for monitoring, managing our active directory and to deploy patch management The solution is easy to deploy. It's also easy to manage and monitor the environment. Instead of being reactive, it's proactive. The support offered after deployment needs improvement. The…

One of the best features is the reports feature. Consolidation of platforms would provide a smoother experience.
Our primary use case for this solution is for default of the stability of the network track If we need to plan the network, or measure our network utilization, SolarWinds enables us to do so.  One of the best features is the reports feature. We can get an editor's report for the last five…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The single dashboard is a valuable feature."
"We can manage the entire system across the network and troubleshoot the pain points."
"The product provides intensive reports."
"The solution is scalable."
"Device monitoring is a good tool of this solution."
"The uptime and monitoring are valuable to us because we need to monitor the uptime of our services, the memory, and the CPUs."
"In my three years of experience with OpManager, we haven't encountered any issues. So, I'd rate it a nine out of ten. It's very stable."
"Device backups are smooth and managed centrally, with a nice dashboard, so you can quickly see the status."
"Flexibility in the two view dashboard helps viewers and admins get the information they need about the fetwork in a flash."
"The most valuable feature of ManageEngine OpManager is the management of the virtual machine and the host machine."
"There are a lot of options for customization of the dashboard, alerts, and reports."
"The people in technical support are very good."
"I love the GUI. Almost everything is accessible through the web interface. It is very user-friendly. It is easy to drag and drop resources wherever you want them."
"The SolarWinds NPM framework, upon which most of their flagship products are built, empowers a wide variety of admins and users to quickly find value in their installed products."
"It's easy to understand, even if you are not too technical."
"The nice thing about SolarWinds is that it's kind of all-in-one. I can manage the status of my networking devices, whether they are up or down, I can see how much traffic is going across an interface, and I can run a report that tells me exactly what that traffic is."
"We have configured multiple alerts for our network devices, including routers and switches, so that we are notified if any interface goes down."
"The ability to customize the views and dashboards is nice. SolarWinds also allows us to access the data via the API. That's probably the feature I liked the most."


"The Wi-Fi side needs improvement."
"The technical support needs improvement."
"ManageEngine OpManager could improve by having a better cloud presence."
"The pricing could be cheaper. The initial integration does cost a bit."
"I would like to see more enhancements made to the product."
"If you have a ton of devices, it might slow down a bit."
"The solution's reports need to include the number of applications consumed."
"ManageEngine OpManager could improve the default dashboards that are available. We are not able to customize them easily and they do not give us the information we need unless we customize them. You need to have the technical knowledge to be able to do it, the customization should be easier."
"The main area for improvement for ManageEngine OpManager is its performance."
"With regard to configurations, however, it would be nice to have more documentation on SNMP configurations. For example, if I want to add a new vendor, it would be great if ManageEngine provided the requirements for that vendor, such as the commands needed."
"Having more technical and support resources available in Saudi Arabia would be helpful."
"The solution could be more secure."
"The tool can only monitor up to 1000 instances in a single SolarWinds console. Customers may have over 1000 instances. Hence, it needs to support a minimum of 1500 instances. It should also improve support."
"The product is scalable, but at a cost. Extra modules have to be purchased for each extra server. The initial set up isn't complex, but will require someone who is experienced with the network monitoring system"
"It has covered everything, so no improvement is required at their end. The only thing is the price."
"We also had to be attentive to vulnerabilities, because SolarWinds NPM have some issues in that area. We had to work with our security team, so that they could help us check and backup the data, and check what they needed to secure."
"It would be good to have high security."
"I would like to have a Syslog server module for this product. That would make the solution better."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The solution is expensive."
"The initial cost is low and the add-ons are reasonable."
"The tool's licensing costs are yearly."
"It is not really expensive; it is nominal licensing."
"The price of ManageEngine OpManager is reasonable. We have an annual license and the cost comes from how many devices are being monitored. There is not anything extra cost for maintenance and support."
"We have a standard license for ManageEngine OpManager. We purchased the license for one year and now we are upgrading it soon."
"It is reasonably priced."
"The solution's licensing costs are yearly and based on the number of applications."
"We had perpetual licenses. The cost was around 36,000 for OPManager, and then you'd have the yearly maintenance fee of 2,000 or 3,000."
"We have a perpetual license for this solution, and my impression is that this solution is cheap."
"SolarWinds is expensive. That's why it's primarily banks using the solution. Small businesses can't afford it. Due to its pricing, most smaller enterprises like manufacturing companies are not interested. For example, we have a client who is also interested in traffic monitoring, but they are not purchasing SolarWinds because of the cost."
"Though I don't remember the price for SolarWinds NPM, its price is somewhat okay when you compare it with other tools in the market. The price isn't too high and isn't too low, so it's okay."
"It is expensive."
"I think that the cost has risen, but the functionality and versatility is way above other products."
"The standard licensing fees are what we're paying. It's about $20,000 a year for all our licensing."
"The cost of the personal perpetual license for SolarWinds NPM is approximately $2,000."
"There can be fees in addition to the licensing fees if you add on."
