The Network Assessment report

The Network Assessment report in Report Manager is used predominantly by SolarWinds N-central partners as a pre-sales tool, after a probe has been launched on the network and SolarWinds N-central is successfully receiving the data. The report provides an overview of critical information within the various areas of the network, giving your customer an immediate demonstration of the thoroughness and value of your MSP offering, and giving you a detailed asset inventory summarizing the current status of the network, helping you identify any actionable issues that will need to be addressed before the customer can start receiving your services.
