SolarWinds NPM Cons

CP
IT Infrastructure Analyst at Textron Systems Corporation
There should be a little bit more integration in some of the other tooling and utilizing the APIs of devices or tools could be a little bit better.

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.

The only real caveat that we have or that I have an issue with is when I go on vacation, it's a little hard for me to go and modify alerts so that I don't get alerted about things when I'm on vacation.

One of the challenges with SolarWinds is that in order to pull the data, we have to have a lot of false positives.

Fortigate firewalls are one example of a product that we are unable to monitor properly via SolarWinds NPM.

An area for improvement in SolarWinds NPM is the short retention period. Currently, it's just for seven days of data, which is very low, making it hard for my organization to keep that data. SolarWinds recommended a seven-day retention period, but my organization needs a fourteen-day data retention period. Hence, I'd like an increase in the retention period or the database limit in SolarWinds NPM because you can't go back to the data for any investigation if seven days have passed. Another area for improvement in SolarWinds NPM is the database, which needs to be a bit more mature. I want a modified database in the next release of SolarWinds NPM. I'd also like more options added to groups because, currently, it's very limited.

They have had a rather large security breach in the past. It's cost some companies customers.
