We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The interface is in continuous development and improves version by version."
"The managing and monitoring are the solution's most valuable features. They are something I find quite helpful in my work."
"This is a good product and I recommend it."
"I think it's stable, scalable, and flexible."
"This is a very good solution and it is simple to use, for any company."
"The most valuable feature is the dashboard, where I can have a single screen that provides a summary for hundreds of servers."
"The most valuable feature is its support for different types of devices, where it can use all of the equipment that you need."
"An excellent solution that is easy and intuitive to implement."
"The features I've found the most useful are the plug-ins, the fact that you can connect almost everything to it. That's very useful."
"Nagios is a custom API manager, and we can expose custom APIs for our integration. This is a great feature."
"Nagios is stable and it's easy to use the monitoring software, which is why we chose this product."
"Our customers would like to see the price lowered."
"If the solution could provide better integration to make it easier to manage everything on different servers, that would be helpful. Whatever servers a company has, be it IBM, Dell, etc., if the System Management could be a platform that links all of them together, it would make management across different server types easier."
"The return on investment report is too difficult to understand."
"I think that support integration could be improved."
"I would like to see support for notification via SMS."
"I would like a much easier GUI so that I can delete events and logs, which will free up a lot of space."
"I would like to see more customization in the network map because it is a bit tricky to use it."
"They need more documentation for the plugins."
"There's room for improvement in the visibility, and in the ability to extract information. Stuff like this should be more simple."
"We often need to develop custom plugins to get Nagios to work the way we want it to work because the features we need are not always available in Nagios."
"The installation and monitoring need improvement."
"The support is yearly-based and the license is permanent."
"The price of this product is fair."
"The license was included when we purchased the server."
"This solution is very expensive, at approximately $5,000 USD when I purchased it, which is why I haven't upgraded my version in several years."
"The licensing fees for this solution are approximately $3,000 USD per year."
"The pricing is high with separate licensing for the product and support."
"Nagios Core does not have any payment, but Nagios XI requires payment for the license."
Nagios XI provides monitoring of all mission-critical infrastructure components including applications, services, operating systems, network protocols, systems metrics, and network infrastructure.
