What is most valuable?

We like the automatic alerting functions. Also, there are a lot of free monitoring modules available for any purpose you may need.

How has it helped my organization?

We've got a medium size distributed system with a lot of locally installed machines, and Nagios provides us with a solid and reliable monitoring solution for these machines.

What needs improvement?

They should simplify the features so it becomes easier to setup out of the box.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for about five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There have been no performance issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's been able to scale for our needs.

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

Nagios was our first solution. At the time, we read that Nagios was the industry standard solution, so we chose it.

How was the initial setup?

It is a complex software with many-many features, so the setup not an easy task.

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house.

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

We are using the free version.

What other advice do I have?

The free version is good enough for most people, but it is somewhat hard to make it a working solution.
