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."

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 »

"The product delivers false positives during reporting because of flapping. Other reasonably priced alternatives may have better performance.""The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have.""The server monitoring could be better.""If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.""The only improvement I would suggest, revolves around its AI and ML capabilities.""For us, the initial setup was complex""The documentation could be improved.""Having a more customizable interface and dashboard would be an improvement."

More OP5 Monitor Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I was using the free, Community Edition.""We purchased Zabbix for a good price, including support""We are using the free, open-source version.""It's an open-source solution that can be used free of charge.""This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable.""Zabbix is open-source so if one wishes to implement it in-house, they must have qualified professionals to set up and optimize databases, Linux/Unix OS, PHP, Apache, and depending on what is monitored, a full-stack network and systems administrator may be needed.""Zabbix is free but if you use it in production then you have to pay for it.""My manager is very happy because it doesn't cost anything."
