Its price can be improved. Their support can also be improved a little bit. In terms of features, it did everything I wanted it to do. With more features, I would have to start installing network agents or something else, and I don't want to have to install anything. This was the value for me about this device.

It is a very valuable tool. It goes out and does a discovery, which is a great process of it. You could have something like a rogue DHCP server, and it will identify it, and then you can see to which switch port it is connected. It is quite an impressive tool. I really liked it because you didn't have to install an agent on anything. It would just go out and do its discovery. For me, that's great.

Hello,  I'm looking for alternatives to SolarWinds NPM as it is expensive for my budget and has poor performance. Please share your suggestions and why you recommend choosing another solution.

You can check riverbed or our Saas solution (  You have several alternatives but it depends if you need network monitoring, infra, a solution like APM.  Also if you are low on budget and depending on your platform and other things (for example SQL Server or Oracle) you can find alternatives.  You have oppmanager, you can use Wireshark, etc. If you use Linux most of the OS have built-in monitors and if you know scripting you can take the data from the Linux OS monitors.  Regards,  Tjeerd
