One of the customer considering using Solarwinds NPM to replace Openivew NNM. I am not familiar with Solarwinds NPM.
Can anyone have some inputs regarding Solarwinds NPM? Is Solarwinds widely deployed in an large network?
I just has an impression they are only useful for specific functions such as monitoring netflow, ipsla...etc.
The customer network have over 1000 nodes over contintental US. They only need to monitor mainly the up/down state of the network devices.

I know Openview is widely used as an enterprise network monitoring tool under this environment. What about Solarwinds?
