Room for Improvement

When compared to earlier versions, it looks like 4.x has lost the statusmap.cgi module.

Update April 2016:

I have fixed the problem with statusmap.cgi by upgrading to version 4.1.1. In the old version this module had not been compiled.

Use of Solution

I've used it for six years.

Deployment Issues

I have had no problems deploying it.

Stability Issues

I have no stability issues.

Scalability Issues

I currently do not need to scale on my network.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

I only have the free version, which does not have customer service.

Technical Support:

I only have the free version, which does not have technical support.

Previous Solutions

We use Cisco ASA and MySQL devices alongside Nagios as our network infrastructure needs expanding and required more serious hardware solutions.

ROI

I believe it is hard to calculate for hardware.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

I only use the free version.

Other Solutions Considered

  • Amanda
  • Cacti
  • Zabbix
  • Icinga (after installation).

Other Advice

As a rule, any device upon delivery is obsolete. Pick up the solution for your business, based on your specific needs.

Hi Artur, Nagios Core 4 still has the statusmap.cgi, both legacy and a newer, better(in my opinion) status map. If your install doesn't for any reason you can reach out to Nagios for help. Thanks for the review :)
