What is most valuable?

Tuning is one of the main components. We like to make sure that only the right alerts are escalated, and that alerts are being sent to the right members, as opposed to… more »

How has it helped my organization?

When we were using Nagios and we had alerts but there was only red, yellow, green. Here, the good thing is that you have escalation: level-one, two, three, which are… more »

What needs improvement?

There are a few things that could have been done better with the reporting. It could have a more graphical interface. The dashboards can be improved. They are good, but… more »

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

We have a separate team involved in licensing. I wasn't involved in that.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

The main reason for migrating to LogicMonitor from Nagios was to eliminate the noise of alerts. It may have been because alerts were not properly tuned, but the visibility… more »

What other advice do I have?

For the initial phase, rather than having only one or two functional guys participating, it's always good to have one or two technical folks in the discussions. That helps… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I believe they evaluated two or three other tools, but I was not part of that process.

What is most valuable?

Among the most valuable features are the queries and reporting that allow us to look at the utilization of resources, at how well the storage is performing, and to report on which resources are being… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It's allowed us to tag storage with applications and business units, so that when we have a requirement to migrate data for an application, we can quickly identify all of the storage that the… more »

What needs improvement?

There is room for improving the creating and managing or modifying of reports. That is still a difficult task to do and requires knowledge beyond the storage itself. I would love to see reporting… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using Cloud Insights, we were using OCI, OnCommand Insight, which is the equivalent of Cloud Insights that we ran on our own hardware within our data center. We switched because it's going to… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to take a look at it, do a PoC, and see all the value that it can add, and all the power that it provides. We rely on it to manage the storage, to look at trending, and determine… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were using OCI, which was the predecessor to Cloud Insights. We've also utilized other monitoring and reporting tools, such as Nagios and Splunk. But Cloud Insights gives us a level of information… more »

What is most valuable?

In terms of the implementation, we've actually used SAM, the server and application monitoring tools. The network configuration tools are very useful in terms of bulk upgrading switches and infrastructure. Also, the Network Traffic Analyzer… more »

What needs improvement?

The biggest problem with SolarWinds is that they've tried to integrate a lot into the core modules. I think it would actually really benefit if they are more focused. It's packing a lot of technology in now, it's very confusing areas in… more »

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

There are additional costs if one wishes to purchase other modules or increase the available functionality then you can pay for additional licensing options. It gets very expensive once you actually decide to scale the infrastructure but if… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were previously using Zabbix. We also looked at alternative products such as Nagios, but SolarWinds was actually decided on only because it's got a lovely graphical interface, it's easy to use, has powerful reporting features, and… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice to someone considering this solution would be to look on the THWACK forums, which is the SolarWinds community support. It's a user support forum. I'd pose lots of questions on THWACK and I'd take advantage of the 30-day trial as… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is an all-in-one monitoring system. It handles a server, network devices, log management, and remote connections. Some other features we find valuable are: * Easy… more »

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has improved our organization because we gain time by simplifying the root cause analysis. We can easily operate monitoring activities, which decreases operational costs. The features… more »

What needs improvement?

The automation for remediation needs to be improved. Improvements are needed for server and network discovery, including service-based discovery. I would like to see the following features in the next… more »

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

Pandora FMS is easy to implement and the pricing of licenses is competitive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I changed solutions because Pandora FMS is an all-in-one solution that is cost-efficient.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated several products including Nagios XI, HP OpenView, Zabbix, and ManageEngine.
