The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is most valuable?

For us, what I find is that we have a declining workforce where we have a very experienced staff who are retiring, moving on in their careers, and we have an influx of newer, younger generation who don't have all of the experience. Because we... more»

I would have to choose two features: Investigate Mode and Troubleshooting.

How has it helped my organization?

All the useful information is right there in tabs for me to check on graphs; check if and when notifications went out. I can make notes on a particular occurrence, and check the history all of these features. It saves me time when... more»

What needs improvement?

Reload time: Although there have been major gains in the time to process reloads, I think that there is still room for improvement in this area. The major gains are between versions 5.0 and 5.2.. When ever you make a change or addition to to... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable component of Opsview might be the very good web GUI. It provides a great overview of all hosts and services; furthermore, adding new monitoring targets and modifying existing configuration is possible. The web interface is... more»

How has it helped my organization?

My company never used Opsview for themselves, but we provided it for many customers. Before using Opsview, they complained about chaotic web interfaces and nonsense monitoring messages in their old solutions. Afterwards, they were impressed... more»

What needs improvement?

The API provided by Opsview is, compared to other monitoring solutions, not state of the art. It would be great to see that more efforts would be put into this part of the product. Furthermore I would love to see support for more database... more»

What is most valuable?

It takes less time to install the product and to get maintenance. The users and our staff can implement those changes much quicker. It makes it a lot easier to install our products.

How has it helped my organization?

We used to spend a lot of time in getting fixes done and also in finding out that all the fixes are available. This product ensures that we have all the fixes in place and that they can be applied over time.

What needs improvement?

They are progressing in that direction. They are keeping track of our configuration changes. So, they will automatically move forward as we progress with our products. Right now, one of the challenges that we still face is to keep track of... more»

What do you think of Opsview Monitor?

Valuable Features For me, scalability and reliability are the product's most valuable features. • Improvements to My Organization It allows proactive event management for both infrastructure and business services. • Room for Improvement Opsview lacks few features. All of the areas we listed for improvement were implemented in version 5. Nonetheless, if it were to become more than a super monitoring tool, I would wish for an integrated CMDB and call-logging module to create a standalone integrated IT service management system out of it. It has the potential! • Use of Solution I have used this solution for two years. • Stability Issues We did not encounter any issues with stability in our implementation. • Scalability Issues We did not encounter any issues...
