Of all the traditions that surround the Thanksgiving season -- time together with family and friends, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and gorging on a usually socially unacceptable amount of food -- the best of all remains its namesake: giving thanks. In honor of this year’s most gratitude-filled holiday, we at SolarWinds asked our THWACK community of more than 130,000 IT professionals to share with us what thanks they would give to their IT infrastructure, if only they could.

The responses we received, which are represented on the following slides, are sometimes funny and sometimes sentimental. But taken as a whole, they help to spotlight the challenges we modern day IT professionals face day in and day out, including the challenges of monitoring and managing increasingly complex IT environments.
