About ipMonitor

ipMonitor by SolarWinds

My techs love this software. it is run with Windows startup and their preferences and watched IP's load quickly and efficiently. They give anything SolarWinds a great big fat thumbs up! I on the other hand only know the basics of it, and know it gives me exactly what I want in regards to IP Monitoring on my desktop. (mind you my tech had to set it up for me...)

Pros

Very much a large and robust piece of software. Gives me a lot of abilities to manage my IP network.

Cons

Too many settings, didn't seem to have a basic user interface as opposed to having an advanced only user interface. Too many options for the layman.

ipMonitor no longer an enterprise product

When it was unhindered by the 500 monitor limitation, this was the best NOC product I've used to date. It was easy to configure, easy to monitor and act upon monitor status changes, and it required little administrative overhead once initialized. Now, with the limitations discussed above, it's relegated to an entry-level product for startups and small businesses.

Pros

The NOC UI is one of the most intuitive and actionable when configured correctly. Inexperienced NOC techs can quickly become proficient at responding to alerts or status changes with this system.

Cons

The limitation on the number of monitors is problematic for all but the smaller end of the SMB market. I expect this change was implemented to drive customers to the Orion suite, which is much more costly and time-intensive to administer.

Reasons for Choosing ipMonitor

At the time, it was because of the easy of configuration and quality of available monitors even though it was slightly more costly.

IPMonitor is a decent server monitoring solution

I used this software from about 2005-2016. It was effective, but could definitely use some UI changes as it didn't really change much at all in the time I was using it. It was really good and detailed when it came down to identifying problems and running reports, but could throw some false alarms from time-to-time. I would recommend this if the price is reasonable, but could also have a learning curve for new users that is not ideal.

Pros

It was easy to keep track of server status' It had alarms you could set to go off if a server was having issues.

Cons

The interface was dated and clunky to use. It would throw a lot of false alarms sometimes.

IP Monitor - not so cost effective but meets the requirements in very highly basis

Using IP Monitor since long back as we are mid-size company easy visibility to network and devices very much helpful in reporting to clients through the acceptance process. It is been a valuable process and asset to our organization may be not so cost-effective but acceptable with its features.

Pros

we were looking for IP management of our network devices, servers, VMware hosts on a very high basis. we looking for agentless monitoring. many tools IP monitoring thinks Pinging is just enough but in reality, only administrators knew its importance. The visibility which it gives is really satisfying for us. at least it came to us at very affordable pricing so we were very happy about it.

Cons

IP Monitor interface could be more effective, alerts could less dry, rebooting the IP monitor trigger every monitor we have sent an email. in the end, we need to submit it to managers reports which not so effective for us. cofiguration management.

Reasons for Choosing ipMonitor

IP monitor helps in oversee the status of all the network, Vmware, server status overall in NOC Dashboards. It gives us to track performance, space, uptime, etc. It also saves the need to login into a device and checks its status manually * best of its automated NOC feature. It also ability in monitoring VLAN zones better and best in understanding.

Quick and easy overview of Up/Down status

I started with IPMonitor, and quickly saw the business benefits coming from it, but later switched to the more comprehensive Network Monitor solution from SolarWinds which have much deeper reach into the network and server monitoring.

Pros

What I like most id the ease of use with SolarWinds IP Monitor. It is SO easy to get up and running, and it will deliver results right away. It's super easy to add new devices to be monitored, and removed once they are no longer needed. There is also a free version to try out before committing to a purchase.

Cons

The pre-build reports could be better, but with a little bit of extra effort, it's possible to create some pretty useful reports.
