Over 243,136 professionals have used IT Central Station research.
Compare the best IT Infrastructure Monitoring vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate
score. For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows: The
product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points.
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 17.5% (weighting factor) *
80% = 14. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 30 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, then its average rating is less
statistically significant. In these cases, 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.
IT Infrastructure Monitoring refers to collection of tools and processes that enable infrastructure managers to be aware of how key infrastructure elements are working, e.g. network, compute, storage and databases. Infrastructure Monitoring tools are used with physical, virtual and cloud systems. The tools are designed to deliver deep insight and visibility into an entire network and system infrastructure.
Asked what to look for in an IT Infrastructure Monitoring solution, IT Central Station members point to ease of installation, scalability and heterogeneous Operating System coverage as key differentiators. Members express a desire to have “out of the box” support for multiple applications as well as a Unified Monitoring Portal (UMP) and transaction monitoring. For some, a simple implementation of business and infrastructure dashboards is essential. Users like having a single point of configuration.
An intuitive GUI is considered a plus for administrative efficiency. Users want to monitor end user experience in context. For example, they want to be able to create business groups so they can track infrastructure performance by internal IT client.
Architecturally, members suggest that fully-featured, non-java, agent based technology can enable the user to install probes where needed. This is in contrast to trying to monitor everything, an approach used by some infrastructure monitoring vendors. Non-Java matters because it reduces the footprint of the agent on the server and can help with stability. A distributed, highly-available monitoring cluster capability is viewed as a “must have” for enterprises that run geographically distributed sites, especially organizations that have a high cost of service disruption.
According to IT Central Station members, the best infrastructure monitoring solutions do some of the work of forming insights for administrators. Users want granulated data on where traffic latency and bandwidth utilization issues are occurring. Reporting sophistication is also important, some users expressing an interest in infrastructure monitoring packages being able to report on compliance of the cloud environment, for example.
