I know I’ve been quiet of my blog this month, but that’s not because I’ve forgetting about this site! For the month of September I’m spending some extra time over at Thwack, this is SolarWinds community where everyone likes to get together and talk about network management. I’ve talked about Network Management quite a bit on this blog in broad topics, and during September at Thwack I get focus on VoIP Network Management.
That announcement aside, the Thwack community is great! I’ve been member of the community for many years (Unfortunately under a few different accounts until I nailed one down a single account). Especially if you are SolarWinds user here are a few highlights of the community:
- Content Exchange – There is a good chance if you are looking for a particular report or custom poller someone else may have already thought about it to, and there also a chance that it might be available in the context exchange available to be downloaded an imported into your SolarWinds platform.
- Feature Request – Got an idea that will make a SolarWinds product easier or better enter this section, the more users that agree with your idea the better a chance it may get implemented into the system
- Feel free to ‘+1’ my request for better & more stream lined monitoring of F5 Virtual Server 🙂
- Great discussions & news updates from SolarWinds – There are many forums on Thwack that focus on different areas of network and systems management, with many great discussions going on. SolarWinds is also great at keeping their users in the know in regards to updates and possible upcoming features.
So far my posts have been about the following:
- How do you prepare for a VoIP deployment? What items are on your VoIP readiness checklist.
- I also took some extra time to consolidate many of the great recommendations into a single document found here.
- What tools do you use to troubleshoot VoIP related issues?
Come join the discussions!
