Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

The pricing has never been a question. We just renewed in November, for the fifth year in a row. It's never a question of whether we need to renew this or the Premiere Support.

As far as I know, compared to the other tools on the market, Foglight is okay in terms of pricing and licensing. Apart from the enterprise license we have, there is the cost of the third-party integration that we talked about. If you need to integrate, you need to procure an additional license from PSO. If you want to set up, say, five new Foglight instances, and you want to integrate all five of them through the third-party, for each of those instances you need to procure an additional license, which would start around $1,000 each. That's something I have talked about with the vendor, something which they should work on. Maybe they could include all those integration licenses as a package.

The price is worth it, if you have the time to go through the information. I have worked with the sales staff at Quest by talking to other potential customers, and have said, "If you don't have the time to focus on the issues that it can present to you, if you've got to split your time between database administration and system administration or helpdesk, then maybe Foglight is too much for you." There are other modules that you can add in for additional cost. For example, you can do network monitoring tools and I believe there's a physical Windows Server monitoring tool. We don't use those because our server team and network teams both have tools that they like better.
