    Depends on if you use it or not. Lots of uses of the application though. I have used it in an engagement before to my present assignment.

    Look it up on the solarwinds website.

    It is gaining importance - the software. The cert is just out. This is like a beta if you may !

    Cheers.

    I'm in. We use Network Performance Monitor at work and I'd like to know more about it. I'm sure it can do a lot more than what it does now

    My new gig uses their monitoring software so I sent in an email. Even if I don't get a certification from it it would be great to learn more about their software's capabilities out of a production network.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    This happened to me to, and honestly its a Godsend. So few people know how to operate this stuff and its a critical business function. I was angry getting stuck with this crap, but I've completely come around. In the future this will become even more important.

    So I got fully registered yesterday. Looking over the study guide it looks pretty comprehensive. Those of you with a CCNA/Networking background I think might have an easier time at it??

    Reason I say that is I dont deal with the first 3 sections of the study guide at all. I would Really like to get this cert but it will have to be after I finish the other ones I'm working on. Good look to anyone to pursues it and please leave feed back here some where.

    Here's what they told me in emailThe SolarWinds Certified Professional program is designed to validate a network engineer’s skillset in network management, in part with Orion NPM. The SCP exam’s primary focus is on industry standard technologies and best practices around network management skills, thus validating an SCP’s expertise in both.

    More information regarding the SCP program can be found here:

    http://www.solarwinds.com/certification/network_certification.aspx

    The SCP exam is now available online, 24/7/365, eliminating the need to schedule a specific date/time to sit for the exam as well as the time and expense of having to travel to a testing center.

    We are currently working on integrating the entire registration process and access to the exam through our online user community, Thwack. As a result, you must be a registered Thwack member. Until the integration process is complete, we are offering the SolarWinds Certified Professional exam 100% free of charge.

    To register for the exam, simply complete the information below and email it directly to myself or to certification@solarwinds.com.

    Took this a few months ago. I enjoyed some of the test that dug into Orion a bit, but other portions need to be a lot harder IMO- or they need to offer various levels. If you've A) used SolarWinds Orion a few times, and B) know networking on a Network+/CCENT level, you can pass.
