We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It provides common administration, and a Single Sign-On Platform with RBAC, which eases the cross launch between multiple toolsThe tailoring of the knowledge modules has been particularly useful as I can streamline the agents to only report on critical events.It is very helpful to be able to apply rule-based routing to alerts.TSOM's ability to consolidate alerts into a single location and provide filtering of alerts is great.It has provided us with a single location to host all events to be viewed/monitored by our NOC. This has greatly helped them to streamline their processes.It allows our operations team to have one single application to reference when investigating issues in our environment.Signature baselines, which have allowed us to fine tune many of our events and significantly reduce the number of events generated.The ability to pull hosts together to show what processes are running, so it can be used for change management.

The most valuable feature is drill-down monitoring, which shows us from one interface the transaction chain from the front end to back end.It provides a history of the activities on our SQL servers.Infrastructure Monitoring and End User Monitoring are the product’s most valuable features to me.Having standard monitoring features and a central repository saves us a lot of time and reduces risk of incidents.Dell Foglight does analyze and optimize your virtual infrastructure. It definitely reduces operational cost.FxV is valuable as we can playback the session.At a glance I can easily see what is going on with all of my VMware ​environments, including top consumers of resources.Intuitive, Single-pane-of-glass dashboards for real-time statistics and long-term statistics for capacity management and in-depth analytics

Cons
The knowledge modules could be more lightweight in size. At present, the installation packages can be quite large.BMC's solutions for cloud monitoring (monitoring of AWS and Azure resources) are very poor in stability and customization.BMC's online documentation is often incorrect or incomplete.I would really like to see out-of-the-box support for monitoring uninterruptible power supplies.More modules for less popular applications and better documentation.I think the ease of deployment needs to be looked at. It would be great if the deployment was faster and easier.The sizing (which is difficult), the maintenance of it and the upgrade paths. This is a difficult area which is not easy to cover, as every client has a different approach of implementing the product.

I want to see a new interface that contains HTML5 features. The current version of Foglight (on-premise edition) is so fusty in comparison with leaders of Gartner APM Quadrant - i.e. Appdynamics, NewRelic, Dynatrace.I would perhaps like to see more SSMS connections.We are running a Webmethods stack (Software AG) and Foglight is unable to instrument. We are in a POC with Dynatrace and it was able to instrument with little effort.Being able to incorporate other bespoke monitoring into Foglight would have made the tool even more useful.I think installation and setup needs little more improvement especially when you are installing with external database.I want to see mobile access application in the next release.They need to improve the stability of FxM and FxV.The “cartridge” concept for every little thing is a bit of a bother to implement.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The solutions are not the cheapest but are robust and stable. License model is rather complex and BMC do often change the model.Use conservative figures. In terms of hardware, monitored servers and also effort. The product is not cheap. But as with other products, you get what you pay for.

Since the product split – the licensing is a bit more complex.Foglight can be expensive I would go with the pricing at a three year deal.The price is expensive for us.I recall it being a very expensive solution relative to function and stability.
