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.

Overall: 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: IPMonitor is extremely easy to set up and configure and is ideal for small companies that do not want to spend a lot of money for a network monitoring product

Cons: The one feature I find that is missing is an easy method to purge out historic data that is no longer needed or valid.

Overall: We have been using IP Monitor for the past 10+ years to monitor our IT Infrastructure (routers, switches, servers, etc). IP Monitor can be configured to generate alerts and a wide variety of reports

Pros: Ease of Installation and configuration

Great Dashboards

Great Reporting

Cons: can take a lots of time to probe a huge network to discover the connected devices and configure the required monitors

Cost is bit high in comparison with competitors

Can monitor only 500 networked devices

Overall: ipMonitor's new management features make it easier to control and monitor large complex networks and to pinpoint issues in a timely manner. There's little to choose between ipMonitor and WhatsUp Gold for smaller networks, and either will do a good job. If you don't need WhatsUp Gold's scalability and ability to monitor distributed networks then ipMonitor is a good choice.

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.

Overall: 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: Easy to scan your network to see which ports are active, nice repository for the whole company to utilize. Very customizable.

Cons: I wish it had easier integration with DNS.

Overall: I love ipMonitor. We use it as our go to verify active ports, IP usage and auditing, and for planning network growth. Also nice to scan the environment for any devices we aren't expecting to see.

Pros: Simple to use, broad list of monitors available, running stable for years

Cons: There was no significant development during the last 5 years, but you have to keep paying the yearly maintenance renewal, otherwise the product will stop working. Release 10.8.2 was in 2013, then nothing happend until 10.8.3 was released in late 2018 with very minor changes.

Overall: If you can live with a feature set that was frozen around 6 years ago, this software will work fine for you.

Don't count on the vendor adding any new features (IPv6, REST API, Mobile friendly display)

additional features expected

Pros: ease of use, the support around it and the way it integrates in to the other SolarWinds lineup of applications. Its very easy to understand and intuitive. I found that many of the features are exactly what I need to monitor the IP segments of my network.

Cons: Honestly there is not much. The cost could be a bit lower. I would like to see them package it with Network Performance Monitor (NPM for short).

Overall: It is not something I use every day however it is something that is used as a double check and also to help me manage the network.
