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»

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

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

The discovery functionality. Every new asset placed in the environment can be automatically detected, predicting human failures.

How has it helped my organization?

* Assertive monitoring * Customized messages * Configurable screens * Division by teams * Customizable alerts * Automated call opening * Mobile connections

What needs improvement?

The product is already great. Wanting something more could take the focus off the product. However, correlation of events would be a wonderful addition.

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

It is worth every cent to pay or even study to do your own installation.

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

I have already used Nagios. After using Zabbix, I did not try new tools. I adapted and believe it would be difficult to convert all the rules to another system.

What other advice do I have?

I believe in the system's potential.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I had a very good references to Zabbix, but I did have a look at Pandora FMS and Nagios.
