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 »

"In the future, we may have double the number of devices, and we do not want to have any issues with performance in the data display.""Improvements are needed for server and network discovery, including service-based discovery.""An update to the Android app would be appreciated.""A nice feature in the next release would be an automation module to run workflow actions.""I think some improvements to the Android app would be good.""I find that this software is resource heavy, and demands a lot of processing capacity.""I would like to have a dashboard with all assets displayed, with a quick hover-over status.""Pandora FMS is an overall great monitoring solution, but it does not have a community that is as large as Zabbix or Nagios."

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."

"Nagios Core is free to use.""Lessening the price point would be an improvement.""We are using the open-source, unpaid version."

More Nagios Core Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Only one payment and it includes support, updates, new versions, and access to the complete library of plugins except for SAP and z/OS.""Pandora FMS is easy to implement and the pricing of licenses is competitive.""You get the license and it includes updates, new versions, and access to the complete library of modules.""My rule of thumb would be that if you need more than thirty agents, and you lack an automation tool such as Chef or Puppet, you will save a lot of time and money going to the Enterprise edition.""In terms of money, the Enterprise version is the cheapest that I have found after a market study.""The open-source version offers 100% functionality and the hardware requirements for a solution like this one are very modest.""Growing the solution or migrating to the Enterprise version is easy, and various plans are available.""The Open Source Community Edition is great to just explore the software, or use it on medium-sized infrastructures."
