Pros
"It monitors and continuously tests everything that is of importance to you and your users. It could be everything from monitoring disk space to CPU usage to memory. It could include determining if the response time in your e-commerce platform is quick enough, or whether you have too many bounces from some of the pages on your website. You want to monitor anything that could cost you money or time or resources. You can do that with this system. It's very flexible.""The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system."

"It is easy to access and discover devices, as well as monitor them automatically. The topology discover is also a useful feature.""The most valuable feature is the monitoring of resources.""We no longer have to manually search for problems because we are alerted when something in the network goes down.""The interface in the last few years it has been a lot greater, they are much more user-friendly. I like the interface.""This is a good, stable network monitoring solution for devices.""I use it on premises to monitor my network database. We monitor the link up/down and use the SNMP traps as well.""The most valuable features are network bandwidth monitoring and monitoring device health.""The installation and configuration process are easy."

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."

"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.""Users want SMS available via Whatsapp Gold. They don't want to go through third party SMS servers. The solution should work to make this possible."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"OP5 has a very low price as a solution, compared to many other solutions out there."

More OP5 Monitor Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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."
