Pricing and Cost Advice
The solution is very effective, despite the low price.Open-source solutions like this can be very cost effective for an organization looking for a product that they can quickly implement, as there is no initial cost and there are no license renewal fees. However, it is important to take into consideration some of the related costs that may come along as needed, such as training, support, and product enhancements.I think Centreon's pricing is fair, especially given the criticality of our system. They were cheaper than the other solutions. The licensing terms were pretty straightforward. I believe it was based on the number of hosts.The pricing is acceptable.They only sell four hour slots for support, so if you have just one question, then you need to pay for four hours. Or, you need to wait until you have enough questions to fill those four hours. They are not flexible in this.For more complex tasks, we use prepaid support days and ask Centreon to come onsite.Centreon is an open source product. Thus, there is no need for licensing.It's quite expensive when you use the Enterprise version, but if you compare it to other providers, it's more like a middle-of-the-line product. It's always good to have a price that is lower, but I would say the price is okay because we get very good support and if we have any other issues we can always contact them. There has never been a time when I didn't get help from them.

The Cx 4100 and Cx 8100 expand the capability of the cPacket Integrated Monitoring Fabric (IMF) by delivering wire-speed millisecond precision predictive behavioral analysis and load balancing across up to 4 x 100G links. With the transition to 100G, the ability to reliably monitor at full-line rate becomes a challenge that legacy monitoring solutions struggle to handle. The Cx 4100 and Cx 8100 expand the IMF to support these 100G requirements, and when combined with the other elements of the IMF (cVu, cStor and cClear), they provide the highest level of network visibility and analysis available for end-to-end visibility, capacity planning, and security analytics. With immediate access to the packet-level details customers can identify problems proactively, such as network spikes and bursts, oversubscription, misconfiguration, and equipment failures. With its advanced Distributed Monitoring Architecture, and patented Algorithmic Fabric Chip technology, cPacket can reduce troubleshooting time by over 80% compared to centralized legacy monitoring solutions.
