Implementation was simple, but if you use the default install it creates a lot of warnings that may not true to your environment.

Just deciding what areas we can use this product has been difficult without training

SAM was a great add to monitor services on our windows systems. Later Solarwinds introduced enhancements such as APPStack that works with other modules that we already own. Because of SAM we now have a complete view of the integration of a single system. From the application to the VM server, VM host, the SAN and the disks in the SAN are all visible in a single view. Without SAM the application and server views in APPStack would be lost. This makes application/system troubleshooting simple and quick.

Software has proven challenging and at times not excelled. But service has, eventually, been strong.

Experience was for support, purchasing, to installation ran smoothly. Have not had any issues with any upgrades or support whne issues arise. Current infrastructure truns smoothly and would recommend this software for server monitoring.

The monitor met our initial requirements just to give us a single solution that did monitoring we requested rather than the larger solution offerings that seemed to have another module or licensed component required to see what was really desired. Over time as we have matured our services SolarWinds has been growing as well within the product giving us more of what we need.

Quick to implement and easy to maintain, SAM just works out of the box. It does require some de-tuning since it's designed to catch everything out of the box.

We have been using this product for several years. We monitor many different products (servers, switches, applications on servers, routers, firewalls) and it has been a good product. The product has developed well over time. Really the main issue that we've had with the products from Solarwinds is that they don't develop as fast as some other products. Also the cost. We have found the CAPEX and OPEX costs to be higher than we prefer.
