PostgreSQL Database Administrator at a tech vendor with 1,001-5,000 employees
A fork of Nagios called Icinga, it’s pretty good, but something like the Zabbix Maps feature was a must have for us. We needed something very schematic and flexible to show the overall status of our systems. View full review »
System & Network Engineer at a tech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Previously, we were using Nagios coupled with Centreon. We switched because Centreon has some paid features and so, there are some hidden costs.

We used Cacti, which worked well for our uses. We moved because we needed a more updated solution that had support for a myriad of devices. The community is also active in development of plugins. View full review »

Before Zabbix, It was another Open Source solution: Nagios. Actually, I set them both up simultaneously. So, I had a chance to compare them side-by-side. Finally, I chose Zabbix. View full review »

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. View full review »
