Pros
I can monitor a phone on a desk to very big servers of any company.I can monitor a software made in-house to software of bigger companies.BPI: It allows defining peripherals to map business criticality for efficient monitoring, as required.Nagios XI helped me to draw the network and check for system failures.The ability to set up templates and groups of checks, as well as customize the checks themselves.Since this is an open source technology, if we are capable of writing the plugins in any scripting language, this product allows us to monitor anything we want.You want to monitor a specific metric that nobody else has? You can do it even with the most basic of scripting skills, and you can always share it with the vast community of Nagios Exchange.Though I downplayed the administrative NCC GUI, this is by far the strongest aspect of the Nagios XI product.

Cons
The product uses the backend as Perl and could be modified to a more lightweight solution like what's being offered by other vendors.The Configuration Wizard needs improvement, because not all vendors are present.Improve the documentation, examples, and best practices, therefore users can understand how to do things.Nagios XI can improve its GUI for users with a new look.The PNP4Nagios plugin not working easily with XI is an issue for me, because some open source monitoring plugins do not work out of the box. But in the end, you learn to live with it.The product could be optimized to improve the administrative user experience via the Nagios Core Configuration (NCC) GUI module.The reporting part should be made simpler. While we can obtain all the reports we need, we always have to create work-arounds to get them.

They should improve their support process and add chat.ScienceLogic should provide detailed documents to customer as the current documents are not sufficient.They should add CLI command modes​ and scripts for high performance.One important area we feel could be improved is the UI. It takes a lot of clicks to do very simple tasks.They should improve database issues in HA and Failover mode, and provide documentation for all users , even if they are not customers.Addressing duplicate IPs: There is the ability to edit the DB and fix this, but adding some logic to understand them would be a plus.I would like to see out-of-the-box standard dashboards for common services.
