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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the monitoring of processes.""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."

"The most valuable feature is high availability.""There are a number of different user interfaces you can choose from.""The 13cR2 updates to the OEM family, strongly integrate Cloud (off-site, hybrid and on-premise) services providing a seamless way to see all of your resources regardless of where they are deployed.""The tried and tested services that Oracle provides is second to none.""The product gives us as much control as we can have by providing a complete picture of the whole set of Oracle products.""SQL Tuning Advisor, ADDM, Top Activity, ASM Space Manager, Incident Notifications""The most valuable features are security and speed.""This solution allows us to quickly drill down when there are issues."

Cons
"The interface could be more user-friendly.""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."

More Nagios XI Cons »

"RMAN tools need improvement.""There's a lot of documentation to go through as a new user.""Reporting and statistical charting is largely still left up the end-user to develop custom solutions.""The solution is considered expensive.""We would like to have a single dashboard for monitoring and controlling all of our products.""Patching. It's extremely difficult to determine what requires patching and the process to patch each component is slightly different.""The user interface is not very interactive. It needs improvement.""The product is pretty comprehensive, but quite resource hungry. This might be due to the majority of the application seemingly being written in Java."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We are using the free version of this solution.""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."

More Nagios XI Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is very high.""Based upon 3 days of implementation by a single person, plus licensing costs would be approximately $60,000, including the virtualized hosts.""We are satisfied with the pricing.""There are a few bugs with the software which require opening SRs with Oracle Support which contribute to the day-to-day cost. Perhaps 8 hours per month is spent dealing with support, just as a rough guess.""There is only the standard licensing fee. There are no other costs.""Evaluate your requirements carefully. Elaborate DR and HA setup of OEM can become expensive.""Be careful to only enable the packs for which you have a license as this is an issue we see time and again.""The solution is inexpensive to purchase."

Overview

Nagios XI provides monitoring of all mission-critical infrastructure components including applications, services, operating systems, network protocols, systems metrics, and network infrastructure. Hundreds of third-party addons provide for monitoring of virtually all in-house and external applications, services, and systems.

As an IT operations professional, your job is more critical than ever because cloud operations are now a fact of life. For example, you must address the concerns of corporate compliance auditors one minute, and the next minute, deal with end users who signed up for cloud services without consulting you first. So, what are you to do?

Not to worry! Oracle provides a single solution for managing both situations. Oracle Enterprise Manager provides a “single pane of glass” that allows you to manage on-premises and cloud-based IT using the same familiar interface you know and use on-premises every day.
