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."

"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."

"I would like to see them do an enhancement to the application monitoring. A lot of other products do better application monitoring so they should do some improvements to the application monitoring.""Pricing is too high relative to how many devices we use. The price list is not linear to number of devices.""I would like to see better integration with switches so that you can see what is connected to each port, what the traffic is, and have a network map automatically generated.""The pricing for this solution has gone up quite recently, which has led some of our customers to buy an alternative product.""One of the biggest things that made us start to look at another product is we're not able to have an end to end monitoring from a user perspective throughout the system and back to the user. All the monitoring is from inside out, we need something that also can give us from outside in.""Adding on services increases the cost and on the version we have there is no option for ATM monitoring.""I think there are a few bugs now. Although they give some resolution for this, we cannot share the network remotely because of our company policy.""Integrations with other devices. I want to have a product that has full integration with my active directory so I can track user activity. I want to track my complete user activity, so I'm looking for a product to implement in the near future, which will have full integration with my network and active directory users. It became very difficult to track user activity."

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."

More VMware Tanzu Observability by Wavefront 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."

More Nagios XI Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing is reasonable compared to other products.""I'm not sure, but it's expensive. We don't pay any additional fees.""The choice of version depends on the number of points, or devices, that you want to monitor, and this makes the product expensive.""The pricing can be on the expensive side when considering competing products.""There are some subscription charges that are quite heavy. I need to pay for support every year and these charges can be quite expensive. Aside from the initial cost for the tool, you need to pay additionally for support."
