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, like the number of devices, iOS, the model, this kind of stuff. But I am not able to find some more detailed information that is important. It may be that we have not deployed all the plugins. At this time we are not doing any research into expanding the deployment because we believe there are better alternatives. My team and I just inherited this solution by default from the previous IT person who deployed it. For now, we're just using it as it is with some workarounds. As it will likely not be deployed much longer, we are not doing any research on it or changing any functionality. View full review »

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 monitoring station has received a critical alarm or a warning alarm. You can configure the handler to take action after the critical alarm without human interaction. Also, we have used the integration between Icinga and terraform. When Terraform starts using a new VM it communicates to the APIs with Icinga, then puts the machine at the Icinga portal. The GUI is very good; it is open-source and it's easy to implement. The NRPE interactions are fine, and the Graphite is good, but there is another source called Grafan and it is better. View full review »
