Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Flexibility in the two view dashboard helps viewers and admins get the information they need about the fetwork in a flash.""The solution's most valuable feature is its ability to reach most of our network devices and get the most from them.""The most valuable feature is the network-related reporting.""The most valuable feature is the monitoring alerts. The administrators are immediately notified and can do the required action immediately. This is the feature we value and use the most.""It helps us a lot for monitoring our servers in one console, instead of going to individual servers.""The solution offers very good integration capabilities.""The application monitoring is the solution's most valuable feature.""The solution is easy to deploy. It's also easy to manage and monitor the environment. Instead of being reactive, it's proactive."

"I really love the activity library. It gives the flexibility to discover data and metrics about my interface and data server.""It improves the status of my infrastructure, from networking devices to real-time machines.""The scalability is good. You can improve a remote host or the clustering. This gives it the flexibility to monitor another infrastructure remotely.""The best feature is that it lets me know what is going on. I need to know if something has gone down, I need to know if something is running very slowly. PRTG tells me that.""Its proactiveness is its most valuable feature. We already know when we come in, in the morning, if a server or site is down, as opposed to someone telling us.""One of its valuable features is the fact that it handles multiple operating systems... And I like the fact that it tells me when things are about to fall over, which means I can preempt it and not have to wake up at three in the morning to fix it.""The sensors and probes are great, nice and lightweight, they don't take up too many resources on the system. We just deploy them out and they start reporting instantly.""Speed of deployment is one of the most valuable features."

Cons
"The two views into the system are very good but could be extended to further customization to fit the need of end users in a variety of roles.""The initial setup is a bit complicated. It needs a technician who is very aware of the flow and how to officially set up the flow chart, etc.""The dashboard has some limitations and should be more user-friendly.""The storage level monitoring needs improvement. It needs storage level monitoring on the server itself. That feature is lacking right now.""The licensing for this solution is not straightforward and should be improved.""The pricing of the solution is high. They should work to adjust the pricing model to see if they can help reduce costs.""The licensing model is confusing.""The solution is a bit difficult to configure. There are quite a number of configurations and plugins that you must handle early in the process."

"I would like to see a more robust platform and a new dashboard. In addition, the code is good, but it needs improvement.""There seems to be a big jump from the basic scan to the really thorough scan. There is a big jump in the quantity of sensors it uses for certain things. One minute you might get ten and then the next you get 200. There seems to be a big jump between the two at times.""It probably has this already, but if it had a mobile app that would be helpful. For example, on a day like today when I'm out, if I could just fire it up and see green, green, green, green, green or red, that would be good.""It would be good if there were better graphical interfaces when you have it on multiple monitors... Because we have so many servers, things can get lost in the fog a little bit. Maybe having a better way of showing different geographies, Flash, etc., would help.""When it comes to third-party integration, one of the things we were looking at was putting some sensors onto our firewall, for instance. If there were a little bit more documentation and some step-by-step guides around that, that would be useful for us.""The Desktop app is good but it can be really sluggish at times, especially when you're editing different elements.""In terms of sensors and probes, it would be really cool if PRTG had a purely Azure-based solution. We had to install a probe on one of our cloud servers and then let that probe out from there. It would be really cool if it just monitored Azure without having to install something on the device.""Sometimes, it is difficult to drill down further to get information, e.g., if we saw spike in traffic, then we would want to drill down and find out what is causing that spike in traffic."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"As far as cost, it was around six hundred thousand rands ($40,500) for the year, for the renewals. That's the total cost for a four thousand node system including support and maintenance.""The licensing costs depend on the number of devices and accounts that are being monitored by the solution.""The initial cost is low and the add-ons are reasonable."

More ManageEngine OpManager Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price was pretty good, very competitive.""The pricing is not too bad. It's not massively expensive, and the ability to upscale or even downscale licenses every year is brilliant for us.""On a yearly basis, I believe it's between £1,200 and £1,500.""We've got 1,000 nodes and I believe it's a few hundred quid a month.""Because we are only on the free version, we have a limited number of sensors. Therefore, we are not monitoring as much as we want to be to obtain historical information.""We are licensed for 2500 endpoints.""We pay for a perpetual license and we have a support fee.""We've got the unlimited package... I believe it was around the £15,000 per year mark."
