Monitoring tool suggestion


Could someone please suggest a tool for monitoring our cloud based destinations from remote offices. We are using SolarWinds from HQ but through that we can only monitor routes to our remote offices. What we are looking for is a tool that can also help monitor certain destination from remote office using their public IP as source not HQ. If possible the tool should also generate an alert in case if the ICMP packets are degraded. The IP SLA option did not worked. We are using SolarWinds (Orion Core 2012.2.2, SAM 5.5.0, IPAM 3.0, NPM 10.4.2,). Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Monitoring tool suggestion

Can you share the ip sla configuration that is not working for you?

If you follow something like this example (used for route tracking there) you should at the very least get a syslog message when the threshold is not met. You would then send your syslogs to your Orion NPM server and define an Alert in the syslog viewer there to notify you when the ip sla operation reports a threshold violation.

See the Orion NPM Administrator Guide section titled "Configuring Syslog Viewer Filters and Alerts".
