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."

More OP5 Monitor Cons »

"Application Performance Monitoring should be included in this solution.""I would like to see integration with antivirus or other security endpoint solutions.""This solution would benefit from expanding on the capabilities within the API.""We are looking to change away from this solution because of the documentation and the solution doesn't have enough integration in our country. The documentation is too weak.""Scalability is a bit tricky because it requires more gateways in order to get the performance you may need. It also requires a lot of licensing.""My team has had a lot of issues with support.""The only thing that can be improved is to continually add to the existing capabilities of the product.""It is difficult for stakeholders to translate technical requirements, which results in difficulties selecting a platform or implementing a solution."
