Monitoring multiple environments improved our organization, but probes need improvement.

No Major issues but slightly delay in response if configuration changes after deployment.

No.

No.

How are customer service and technical support?

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes I did but I ended up with unreliable solution and stuck with platform dependencies.

How was the initial setup?

It is pretty straightforward as it has number of different ways to communicate with the end client that makes me feel very comfortable with is flexible product to work on.

What was our ROI?

Approximately but not constant to $65,000.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Managed by the company finance as I’m a Technical Product Manager and not familiar with Finance in exact figures.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes I did. That was Nagios but it platform dependent and there I had to switch to Nimsoft.

What other advice do I have?

This is the best product for Large Infrastructure companies/organizations to monitor their infrastructures/servers etc.


Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: I previously worked for CA.
