This product is little bit slow sometimes. It may be that we need to change the configuration to improve performance.OpManager is slow but that just might be the server we have it on. I don't think that's the problem but I don't do the server. But it is slow. When you're interacting with it, it could be more nimble and could be faster.It is sometimes difficult to manage the user interface. It can get very complicated.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.The licensing model is confusing.The pricing of the solution is high. They should work to adjust the pricing model to see if they can help reduce costs.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.

More ManageEngine OpManager Cons »

Technical support and releases are not particularly reliable.It has covered everything, so no improvement is required at their end. The only thing is the price.SolarWinds needs to be improved such that it is on par with the leading products in the market.Complex and overly detailed setup.There needs to be more integration of widgets, especially for reporting purposes.Having more technical and support resources available in Saudi Arabia would be helpful.In terms of scalability, there is room for improvement. When you start monitoring, if you have so many interfaces and you're trying to monitor them at a faster interval, or a shorter interval, you get to a point where you need to request another node.It is difficult for stakeholders to translate technical requirements, which results in difficulties selecting a platform or implementing a solution.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The initial cost is low and the add-ons are reasonable.The licensing costs depend on the number of devices and accounts that are being monitored by the solution.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.
