Pros: If you run more than 5 devices you need this tool. With the ability to automate backups of iOS of the Cisco and other supported devices like HP and others you save time and money, it keeps a history and allows you to quickly restore a previous image. It also documents any and all changes to the device.

Cons: Really there are not many. Price is about the only complaint, its expensive. I have found that often Solarwinds is very proud of their software and think it needs to bring top dollar.

Pros: Able to View configs on devices without having to login to device through. Able to archive configs to backup location. Also able to send email with config changes to email address.

Cons: I wish they would have their network insight feature more than just for cisco ASA's . Not able to limit the viewing of backup configs to a specific time without limiting the backup retention to that timeframe.

Overall: Easily look at configs and copy and paste to new device in case of failure. Good solution for backups and monitoring.

Easy to setup, does require a little time looking at documentation to get it properly customized.

Pros: You are able to collect network device configurations using either telnet/ssh and you can obtain real-time config changes via SNMP traps. When a config change has been detected you can be alerted via email where you will be seen via change management the before and after configs with the changes highlighted.

It also allows you to upload new configs to any devices that you are managing that you have set up access to.

If you do experience any problems you will more than likely be able to fix them by applying a patch or upgrading to a newer version.
