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

Pros
"This solution allows me to have true visibility for any metrics when it comes to my cloud, and private.""This solution makes it a lot easier to figure out trends within very different data sources, which makes it easy to see why something is misbehaving.""The features I find most valuable is the querying and alerting capabilities.""People are very pleased with the implementation.""The most valuable aspects of the solution are its ease of use and its ease of implementation.""No issues with stability."

"Nagios monitors our servers, so we know if anything goes wrong and can solve the problem before it happens.""I like the way the solution sends alerts and how it keeps on escalating them.""The most valuable feature is the performance parameters of the system.""The most valuable features are the reports and the way it generates the report in a graphical manner."

More Nagios Core Pros »

"It monitors and continuously tests everything that is of importance to you and your users. It could be everything from monitoring disk space to CPU usage to memory. It could include determining if the response time in your e-commerce platform is quick enough, or whether you have too many bounces from some of the pages on your website. You want to monitor anything that could cost you money or time or resources. You can do that with this system. It's very flexible.""The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system."

Cons
"I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.""I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.""In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.""The implementation is a long process that should be improved.""They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.""It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality."

"It's not that easy to install the product itself. Also, the UI is a bit hard for regular users to navigate through.""I would like to see more training videos.""The core version is no match for the XI version.""The scalability needs improvement, it's not scalable at this time."

More Nagios Core Cons »

"IT environments today are in constant flux. This is driven by the newer cloud technologies such as Kubernetes and Docker, etc. The whole Nagios-based monitoring system that OP5 is created on top of, is based on a host-service model. There is a need for a strategy on what to do with more dynamic environments. There is some cool stuff going on in that direction.""The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Educational pricing is available for this solution.""We were given a year's worth of service. It was included within our ELA. We were trying to do a proof of concept, which is almost over now.""Different locations require different setups. In your terms, around 300 to around 400K USD."
