Pros: I enjoyed creating my own dashboard which made it easy for me to track all alerts by priority, see the RAM, CPU, disk usage in every cluster and take proactive decisions accordingly.

The capacity planner tool was perfect when assessing the need for future server procurement. The reporting tool can be customized and has a very wide range of options that makes reporting fun & easy.

Installation and upgrades are straightforward.

Cons: 1-You cannot control the VM from the console directly.

2- The application runs on a VM that you deploy. If the cluster hosting that VM went down, you wont get any notifications of that failure.

Overall: I got alerted about issues in 7 Virtual clusters. The thresholds i set, helped me make proactive decisions and prevent VM, ESX, Vcenter and cluster failures

Pros: Integration in to Orion, it's insight in to your clusters, and other details you receive from it. I find it to be one of the more important tools in my administrative arsenal.

Use it to manage our ESXi environments with over 50 hosts.

Pros: Allow it to see usage (CPU, disk, memory, network) for you whole ESXi environments for either cluster or individual host. Has forecast capability to show future usage with data. Allow you to create alerts base on filter or criteria that you setup, and reporting tools as well.

Cons: Difficult to troubleshoot or upgrade it to the latest version without support from SolarWinds. User interface is not very straight forward to use at sometime....

Overall: Able to forecast the usage of my ESXi environments and provide purchasing decision.

Great tool for monitoring my Virtual environment

Pros: What i like most is the recommendations that it gives to move machines to different hosts to even the work load across my environment. You can also select system you cannot move and it will recommend other changes

Cons: The only Con i see is price of course that is what anyone would say but you can save money in the long run by being able to plan your data purchases better with using this effectively
