Implements automated tests of all the things you are responsible for as an IT operations manager

What is our primary use case?

Most of our clients are IT operation departments in larger organizations. They use OP5 Monitor to get an understanding of what's going on in their IT infrastructure: everything from network and server infrastructure to applications and specific metrics inside applications. It's mostly operational stuff. For a standard IT department the types of applications they monitor would include, infrastructure-wise, everything from the network, service virtualization environment, VMware, cloud, and everything that runs on top of that, like databases, web servers, financial systems, payroll systems, and… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "It monitors and continuously tests everything that is of importance to you and your users. It could be everything from monitoring disk space to CPU usage to memory. It could include determining if the response time in your e-commerce platform is quick enough, or whether you have too many bounces from some of the pages on your website. You want to monitor anything that could cost you money or time or resources. You can do that with this system. It's very flexible."
  • "IT environments today are in constant flux. This is driven by the newer cloud technologies such as Kubernetes and Docker, etc. The whole Nagios-based monitoring system that OP5 is created on top of, is based on a host-service model. There is a need for a strategy on what to do with more dynamic environments. There is some cool stuff going on in that direction."

What other advice do I have?

Make sure that you have a good relationship with ITRS or a partner that can support you in the process. Most of the clients that I work with have been our clients for many years. The reason they are using ITRS is that it's something that works for them. They invested a lot of time and effort into learning the tool, adopting it to their needs, and making sure that it's working well for them. I also think they value the local contact, that they have someone to talk to; a vendor that actually supports them in their endeavors. Stuff happens. It doesn't matter if you run a small IT department or a…

Flexible, helpful support, and the API makes integration easy

What is our primary use case?

We use this product for our network monitoring solution.

Pros and Cons

  • "The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system."
  • "The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I like the flexibility, as it is based on Nagios. It is more tailored towards network monitoring and I can recommend it. There are some visual aspects and the NetFlow that are missing, but otherwise, I'm completely fine with it. Especially with the API, where I can use the data with many other systems, it's great. OP5 is meeting my purpose, but the UI is not suitable for management, who are looking for something fancy. Also considering the NetFlow functionality is missing, it loses a couple of marks. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
