We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"One feature I like about CA Performance Management is the certification of the devices."
"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."
"This solution is not very scalable."
"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"

"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."
"My manager is very happy because it doesn't cost anything."
