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: Solarwinds is a very easy product to install, configure and operate. I love a lot of the automation that can be done on routers or switches

Cons: Sometimes finding the right menu option you need. Once I find the screen I am looking for, I bookmark it and name it to something that makes sense to me

Overall: I love that a lot of the automation can be done on routers or switches. I have it backing up our devices on a nightly basis

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.

Pros: The compliance policy feature was decisive in choosing this product. It is easy to implement and functional.

Cons: Sometimes you encounter simple problems despite all the improvements. An example of this is the occasional opening of the login page.

Overall: With the NCM product, we collect configuration backups from central devices and branch devices. However, we also provide compliance policy controls. The NCM product is extremely easy to use with a user-friendly interface. Seems incapable of working smoothly.

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.
