SolarWinds provides best-in-class, feature-rich IT monitoring and management tools that operate efficiently when first installed. However, as with all systems over time, organic growth and additional feature implementation can heavily impact performance. Couple that with the fact that most organizations only use around 35% of the available features, and it’s easy to see how an organization can quickly stop realizing the true value from their investment in SolarWinds.
Alerting is a keystone of monitoring infrastructure and an infamously difficult thing to do well. When it goes wrong, it can profoundly negatively impact the productivity and happiness of the engineers who rely on it. Faced with a mountain of alerts, how will they know which ones are critical versus which can be tackled later? Too much noise and a lack of priority or urgency may make IT less effective, efficient, and more costly.
Here at Loop1, as part of our L1M3 (Loop1 Monitoring Maturity Model ‘LIME’) methodology, we term this as being ‘Feature Complete’—or perhaps more precisely, ‘Feature Aware’. Are you aware of all the available features and functionality in the SolarWinds Orion tools you currently have deployed in your environment? If not, you could be missing out on powerful functionality and insights that help drive value and maximize the potential for ROI.
Loop1 can help you reduce noise, and define your alerting strategy, identify hardware, server, or performance problems, identify gaps in your tool and feature deployment, and understand the bigger picture to plan for what’s next.
Based on key data points and recommended best practices, Loop1 will:
One of Loop1’s SCP-certified engineers will assess your Orion deployment leveraging the power of Orion Insights, alongside SolarWinds diagnostics tools, and undertaking a hands-on review with your technical team. The evaluation starts with a review of the underlying architecture, including server resources, system, and database health, versioning, and licensing, before turning to the number of alerts and alert definitions, polling and data retention, core feature usage, and scalability. The final stage looks more deeply into the health and performance of the individual Orion modules deployed in your environment.
A follow-up session is set up to present the report card and recommended action plan for improvements and enhancements to your environment. The report provides a high-level overview with an easy-to-navigate traffic light system to denote priority for recommended remediation actions.
Fix immediately—these items are likely to have a significant impact on the effectiveness and efficiency of your SolarWinds Orion platform if left unchecked.
Not as critical—however, we
recommend you address these items in the short to medium term to get the most benefit from your Orion platform and negate any resultant platform downtime
