Fault Coverage

Why Monitor Only a Fraction of Your Environment?

SolarWinds® claims that you only need to monitor "critical interfaces" and they price their solution accordingly. That may meet your budget, but it’s going to leave you with a lot of unmonitored interfaces and a lot of potential issues. By the time you realize you’re under-monitoring, you only have two options: you can either continue with this minimal coverage or pay to increase your fault coverage. But...

  • The average cost of increasing SolarWinds® NPM fault coverage is 65 - 200% of your original investment.*
  • When you upgrade SolarWinds® NPM you must also upgrade SolarWinds® NTA, which can add another 50 - 150%.*
  • And don’t forget to factor in the annual service cost increases!

This is why IT teams are replacing SolarWinds® with WhatsUp Gold.

WhatsUp® Gold’s flexible licensing provides a simpler, easier-to-manage license model. One device = One license, which supports any number of monitors, elements and interfaces on that device. All without any additional costs or downstream surprises.

Add-on Licensing Adds Up

SolarWinds® add-on licensing limits your ability to adapt your monitoring strategies to your changing IT needs. Over/under configured SolarWinds® licenses cannot be transferred between add-ons. Your only option: buy more!
