What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature we've found is really just how easy it is to add servers and devices to the monitor. We also like the UI and applications. What we've also found that we like the iOS app which lets us acknowledge issues or see... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our functioning has definitely improved because we previously did not have any monitoring for our servers. We didn't even know when our hard drives were filling up, and the situation has now improved dramatically. With the monitoring... more»

What needs improvement?

I wish they'd update the iOS app, which, I think, is the same version I used back in 2012 or so. It's always looked pretty much the same. As for the web version, things like the acknowledgements are better, but I'd rather use the iOS app... more»

What is most valuable?

I would have to choose two features: Investigate Mode and Troubleshooting.

How has it helped my organization?

All the useful information is right there in tabs for me to check on graphs; check if and when notifications went out. I can make notes on a particular occurrence, and check the history all of these features. It saves me time when... more»

What needs improvement?

Reload time: Although there have been major gains in the time to process reloads, I think that there is still room for improvement in this area. The major gains are between versions 5.0 and 5.2.. When ever you make a change or addition to to... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable component of Opsview might be the very good web GUI. It provides a great overview of all hosts and services; furthermore, adding new monitoring targets and modifying existing configuration is possible. The web interface is... more»

How has it helped my organization?

My company never used Opsview for themselves, but we provided it for many customers. Before using Opsview, they complained about chaotic web interfaces and nonsense monitoring messages in their old solutions. Afterwards, they were impressed... more»

What needs improvement?

The API provided by Opsview is, compared to other monitoring solutions, not state of the art. It would be great to see that more efforts would be put into this part of the product. Furthermore I would love to see support for more database... more»

What is most valuable?

The system is very robust and very rarely breaks. It just sits there working, doing what's expected. Very little maintenance is needed and the support is very good. I would say stability is the most valuable feature. I'm struggling to think... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We use it mainly for networking post-monitoring and service monitoring. We have sites across France, Spain, and the UK with many different production devices on it. We mainly just do service checks to make sure the operation of the company... more»

What needs improvement?

I think it still has room for improvement to auto discovery. If you put the agent on a house, it has auto discovery. I also think it can be improved with VMware as well. It can be a little bit flaky with the agent on VMware. It performs all... more»

What do you think of Opsview Monitor?

Valuable Features The dashboard, which gives us real-time monitoring, is the most valuable feature for us. • Improvements to My Organization We are now providing visual representations for our big data solutions. This "ticks the boxes" for our customers who have been asking for Operational Dashboards for years. Because they are so easy to set up, we are able to set them up pretty quickly. • Room for Improvement It's probably the priciest option of all its main competitors. • Use of Solution I've used it for two years. • Deployment Issues We've haven't had any issues with deployment. • Stability Issues We have had no issues with the stability. • Scalability Issues There have been no issues scaling it. • Customer Service and Technical Support The...
