We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The auto-discovery of the logs is the most valuable feature. It requires minimal configuration, we just need to set up on once and it automatically detects through the code."
"I like Business iQ the most, so far. It has great analytics configurations and I can get real-time updates. We have eCommerce releases every week. So the one use case that I use Business iQ is to compare before and after release performance using AppDynamics."
"This solution gives us quite good insights that we might otherwise overlook, or it might take a really long time to debug those issues."
"Simple network monitoring that is easy to install and manage."
"The most valuable feature is the support for monitoring Cisco switches."
"The implementation process is very straightforward."
"The most valuable feature is the alert and alarm monitoring."
"The best thing about Zabbix is the integration and the APIs that are included are very fast"
"The integration capabilities and APIs are the best part."
"Zabbix is both stable and scalable."
"The flexible licensing model is one of the solution's most valuable aspects. It really allows for great flexibility for companies."
"In the next release, I would like to see the configuration of the data and more support for new applications. It should support new languages."
"The one thing that I find it difficult in using AppDynamics is, for any new user, it's not easy for him or her to configure the transactions in AppDynamics because the UI is pretty complex. The configuration is pretty complex for a new, fresh user. They can make the UI simpler, that'll be very helpful for anyone to configure their website in AppDynamics."
"I would like the ability to choose from some pre-defined dashboards and reports because as it is now, you have to define them separately for each implementation."
"The product delivers false positives during reporting because of flapping. Other reasonably priced alternatives may have better performance."
"The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have."
"The server monitoring could be better."
"If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice."
"The only improvement I would suggest, revolves around its AI and ML capabilities."
"For us, the initial setup was complex"
"The documentation could be improved."
"Having a more customizable interface and dashboard would be an improvement."
"My understanding is that the price of this solution is quite high, compared to other products."
"I was using the free, Community Edition."
"We purchased Zabbix for a good price, including support"
"We are using the free, open-source version."
"It's an open-source solution that can be used free of charge."
"This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable."
"Zabbix is open-source so if one wishes to implement it in-house, they must have qualified professionals to set up and optimize databases, Linux/Unix OS, PHP, Apache, and depending on what is monitored, a full-stack network and systems administrator may be needed."
"Zabbix is free but if you use it in production then you have to pay for it."
