It's very expensive. We pay around six figures a year in maintenance costs for around 1000 licensed nodes. But the good thing about the tool is that they don't charge on a per user basis. I can have my whole team use the tool to access the database using one router with one license. The more nodes we manage, the better it's for us. We have hundreds of sites, which means that to reduce the price tag, we need to choose which device we're going to use to monitor the site. We complement the functionalities with other tools, open-source tools, like PRTG.
