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


What is most valuable?

  • Reliability
  • Security
  • Flexibility
  • Functionality
  • Availability - controllability anywhere and with different methods

What needs 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.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for six years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I have had no problems deploying it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I currently do not need to scale on my network.

How are 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.

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

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

What was our ROI?

I believe it is hard to calculate for hardware.

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

I only use the free version.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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

What other advice do I have?

As a rule, any device upon delivery is obsolete.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

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

4.0.8

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 :)
