What is most valuable?

I don't know what features are best because I don't like this solution, it seems inadequate, and I only use very basic features. You can get basic information out if it… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It is not really adequate for our current needs. It causes additional issues which we have to work around and takes us time that a better solution would not.

What needs improvement?

A lot of things could be improved because it has a lack of dashboards, no detailed information for reporting, no information for the audit purposes that we can send, no… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is relatively inexpensive and may be okay if you are a smaller organization concerned with the price more than the utility.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I've worked with many other monitoring solutions and they are pretty good and they can become very user-friendly over a little time. This solution is not comparable. We… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you have a small infrastructure or a small number of devices that you want to monitor, then I think it's a good solution. If you have a lot of devices or an enterprise… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was not the one who chose and installed this solution. The product was already deployed when I joined. We are currently evaluating several potential solutions including… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is one that not many are even aware of. Icinga has an event handler. This solution has a self-healing handler where if the service is down, it is automatically restarted. Not all monitoring solutions offer this feature. The handler was deployed to take action after the… more»

What needs improvement?

Development is needed between APIs, Icinga, and the Enterprise. One of the areas that are frustrating is remote monitoring for more than one machine. If I have two machines, an X and a Y, and I would like monitors from machine Y, I would have to log into Machine Y and run a separate service. Icinga… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is an open-source solution with paid support.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

* Macros * Possibility to connect it to Google Maps

What needs improvement?

Trap SNMP. I saw the documentation for Zabbix, that it has its own built-in product which handles SNMP traps, and there's nothing similar in Icinga or Nagios. I think this feature is most important for me.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I previously used openNMS and Zenoss.

What other advice do I have?

When selecting a product, the most important criterion is functionality. If you have a static environment, you can use Icinga because it's very good. But if your environment is growing fast, think about Icinga but also consider Zabbix. I… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I use it for monitoring infrastructure and it was very good for that issue. But, I heard many people say that Zabbix is a better solution so I want to compare them both, to form my own point of view on that. I want to compare them, to make… more»
