What features should companies look out for when selecting an event monitoring tool?
Agentless or not ? what kind of notifications (mail, snmp, script...) ? existing connector with other monitoring software ? monitoring discovery, ability to create template for automation monitoring ? Price illimited license ? per node, per monitored item ? Big community ?
@Toto Tatat thanks this is very helpful! Do you have any other tips for choosing event monitoring software?
What are the monitoring software capabilities for discovery? Is it agentless? How many people need to provide support and maintenance?
I especially like the question about how many people are needed to provide support and maintenance.
Are event correlation and aggregation both needed for effective event monitoring and SIEM?
