We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Centreon is better than Nagios XI in regards to cost and support response times, when you have a problem. If you have a problem, it costs money to contact the Nagios XI support."
"Their licensing model is really easy. You have one license and you have access to all the features, compared to other tools where you have to purchase add-ons."
"Centreon is always available to develop new plugins when needed. The most important thing is that their maintenance account yearly subscription fee includes the fact that they will maintain the new plugins that you requested them to deliver."
"If you need basic monitoring without dashboards, just monitoring, the plugins are very useful and really cheap. If you want a more complete solution with dashboards and reporting, the EMS solution is great and it is not that much more expensive. It's a good value. Really good."
"The pricing works out well for us, given our environment and where we are."
"It is relatively inexpensive compared to other products in the same category."
"It's expensive and there are costs in addition to the standard licensing."
"I find that the pricing is acceptable."
"The NPM component of the system costs approximately $1,000 USD per year."
"There are a lot of sub-products and it just continued to increase the price."
"The price is more expensive than some other products, such as ManageEngine."
"We have a multi-year license for the use of this solution. There are additional costs for recourses in the environment."
"There can be fees in addition to the licensing fees if you add on."
