What is most valuable?

One of the most valuable features is the way it tries to discover technologies. It doesn't use any out-of-the-box things. It specifically uses the available, standard protocols, like TCP, UDP, WMI, and WinRM. It makes use of whatever underlying technologies are there. That is one advantage of being… more »

What needs improvement?

There is room for improvement with the administrative part. They introduced Control Center to manage things in Zenoss 5. The services that Zenoss provides remained the same, but the administrative part, since they introduced Docker, etc., has become a little complex. I know it's interesting to get… more »

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

It is very cost-effective compared to the tools I worked with in the past. The company is gaining a lot with respect to the cost factor. It provides agentless monitoring and in a very cheap way.

What other advice do I have?

Whenever a customer needs to monitor or manage multiple systems that need to be integrated into a single platform, and they need the cost to be very effective, I would recommend Zenoss. I have worked on Zenoss for big, commercial enterprises, with customers who have 20,000 employees , where I have… more »

What is most valuable?

The custom built integration is one of the most valuable features because you can see all the especially critical items. You can choose to ignore others or to take action. It's good when all the notifications are coming into one system. You can take action if needed.

What needs improvement?

Zenoss Service Dynamics is good at the moment. I don't see anything that needs to be improved. In terms of monitoring, they need some sort of customization options. It should be more intuitive. Zenoss Service Dynamics is quite complex, i.e. the number of required corrections, etc. There was a… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Before Zenoss Service Dynamics, we previously used IBM products.

What other advice do I have?

Zenoss Service Dynamics is a good product. They need some sort of customer issue support from the company. Whatever they need to build, we have to think about using it. I'll give Zenoss Service Dynamics a ten out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the flexible discovery mechanism.

How has it helped my organization?

Our primary use case for this solution is flexible centralized monitoring.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see greater importance placed on the open-source version of this solution. This solution is complex for beginners so it takes some time to learn. The inclusion of a feature to show a graphical view of the network would be a… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anyone who is implementing this solution is to have patience because the learning curve at the beginning is steep. It is the most flexible solution of this type, but it takes time to adapt. I would rate this solution a nine… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Compared to other solutions such as Nagios, this is the most flexible one.
