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 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...

What is most valuable?

I like its scalability thanks to slaves. You can add as many slave as you want, which also allows you to reach and monitor devices running on the network that are not accessible by the master. It also has good roles management which is very... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Before we used Nagios. It's based on Nagios too, but the biggest benefit when compared to it is the simplicity to set up and modify devices.

What needs improvement?

SNMP traps management to be improved. It's not so easy to use and you have to pay more to get the SMS module.

What do you think of Opsview Monitor?

Valuable Features For me, scalability and reliability are the product's most valuable features. • Improvements to My Organization It allows proactive event management for both infrastructure and business services. • Room for Improvement Opsview lacks few features. All of the areas we listed for improvement were implemented in version 5. Nonetheless, if it were to become more than a super monitoring tool, I would wish for an integrated CMDB and call-logging module to create a standalone integrated IT service management system out of it. It has the potential! • Use of Solution I have used this solution for two years. • Stability Issues We did not encounter any issues with stability in our implementation. • Scalability Issues We did not encounter any issues...
