SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

Powerful Network Performance Monitoring for Your Ever-Evolving Network

SolarWinds Network Performance Manager (NPM) enables you to quickly detect, diagnose, and resolve network performance problems and outages—before you start getting calls asking if the network is down.

NPM is the easiest product of its kind to deploy, use, and maintain, which means you can spend your time actually managing your network, not supporting your network management software. Plus, with one-hour, do-it-yourself deployment, you’ll be monitoring immediately, instead of filling out statements of work for more consultants.


  • Simplifies detection, diagnosis, and resolution of network issues – before outages occur
  • Tracks response time, availability, and uptime of routers, switches, and other SNMP-enabled devices
  • Shows performance statistics in real time via dynamic, drillable network maps
  • Includes out-of-the-box dashboards, alerts, reports, and expert guidance on what to monitor and how
  • Automatically discovers SNMP-enabled network devices and typically deploys in less than an hour
