In my opinion, the price is very competitive compared to other products. Just compare it with "SolarWinds, Check MK" etc.. Other products are good but from the configuration point of view Nagios is really very god & easy to understand. For me, Nagios isn't pricy if you compare the features & services offered. It can easily run on a basic desktop level hardware to monitor 100s of hosts & services.

Zero cost for the core edition but you need to know linux based apps configuration a=in general but in this case the installation and configuration guides make things a lot easy . A bit of patience and clear thinking you may end up doing a lot more in your setup than you expected !!!!

The Nagios Core (PNP4Nagios + Core) is free and can be setup by Netadmin within a few hours. The only additional cost is the cloud server.
