What is most valuable?

Though I downplayed the administrative NCC GUI, this is by far the strongest aspect of the Nagios XI product. In my early days of exposure to Nagios, I was using the Nagios Core product which was configured by manually editing system... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Nagios XI allows my customer to monitor literally thousands of network and computing endpoints (both hardware and software) in real time, including custom derived SNMP polling and traps. One can even write custom scripts that are embedded as... more»

What needs improvement?

The product could be optimized to improve the administrative user experience via the Nagios Core Configuration (NCC) GUI module.

What is most valuable?

The main characteristic I adore is the open source character of it. You want to monitor a specific metric that nobody else has? You can do it even with the most basic of scripting skills, and you can always share it with the vast community of... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Like any monitoring tool, it gave me insight into multiple infrastructures I've been a part of, without any limitation (due to the open-source character that I referred to above).

What needs improvement?

It's more what I personally don't like, rather than what areas need improvement. For example, the PNP4Nagios plugin not working easily with XI is an issue for me, because some open source monitoring plugins do not work out of the box. But in... more»

What is most valuable?

Since this is an open source technology, if we are capable of writing the plugins in any scripting language, this product allows us to monitor anything we want.

How has it helped my organization?

Since my organization has many companies in the form of customers for handling their infrastructure and application, we used to use the paid tool before. However, the open source technology is the best thing for an organization in today's... more»

What needs improvement?

Nagios XI can improve its GUI for users with a new look. Otherwise, we could develop it on our own. This is the reason I think most users don't prefer it, but technically it is a very strong tool.

What is most valuable?

The community, Nagios XI is made on Nagios Core base, and the community makes plugins on almost any language of programming. Nagios is not owned by any brand. The second feature is Nagios is very friendly, if you can customize the tool to the... more»

How has it helped my organization?

With Nagios, I can monitor a phone on a desk to very big servers of any company. Also, I can monitor a software made in-house to software of bigger companies.

What needs improvement?

If you want the best security: Log Server is better. If you need in-depth networking, I recommend Network Analyzer. If you want any other implementation of Nagios, the best is Nagios Fusion.

What do you think of Nagios XI?

Valuable Features The High Availablity feature is the most important. I have not seen Nagios crash during the last three years. The Script Module in Nagios is really easy to use and is really cost efficient. • Improvements to My Organization This solution provides 24/7 monitoring of the IT infrastructure and provides real-time monitoring for the devices, with alerts. • Room for Improvement The reporting part should be made simpler. While we can obtain all the reports we need, we always have to create work-arounds to get them. • Use of Solution I have used it for the last three years. • Stability Issues The only issue faced is that after 20K services Nagios starts acting weird, due to the amount of checking it does and the amount of data stored in the database. •...
