Pros: Detailed drill downs of applications, and the APP stack tool is light years ahead of its time. The Application Health Overview is a quick glance of how your monitored applications are doing. The best part is you can easily drill in to the issues and see the apps listed and continue to drill in to them to find the issues being presented. The Alerts are detailed and are a good tool to assist you in measuring your KPI's. From AppStack, you have access to more than just monitored applications but the Database instances, transactions, steps, servers, hosts, virtual clusters, datacenters, data stores, volumes, Luns, pools, and more. Its a professional tool for all.

Cons: Cost of ownership. The licensing is expensive. Although the install is easy, setup could be better. There is so much you will want to monitor and the licensing isn't forgiving. They offer a unlimited license but you better be ready to open the wallet for it.

Pros: Whenever a network monitoring tool like SolarWinds NPM is not enough because you need to monitor the behavior and health of applications and services, SAM is the best option, with it's powerful discovery, polling and visualization capabilities. We get very valuable technical insights on platforms such as SQL Server, MySQL, Apache, IIS, Tomcat, Exchange, Sharepoint, Active Directory, RDS roles, and also we've been able to develop hundreds o custom scripts for monitoring of in-house developed applications.

Cons: The same as with all SolarWinds products, their licensing model is obsolete, not adequate for service providers or for any enterprise looking for consume-based billing.

Technical support is effective but, at least for Mexico, not as fast as sometimes required.

Overall: We are able to provide our end customers with very detailed information about their applications activity and health. This information can be presented in different ways for different stakeholders, from the very technical detail -the customer can use the GUI to explore data- to C-level by building executive reports.
