Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The dashboards are valuable because they ease troubleshooting and viewing. It becomes easier to locate the source of a problem... The dashboards make it easier to communicate with our clients. They don't want to see the alert console, they want to see a beautiful dashboard representing their network and their business and to watch it in case something is wrong in their environment.""The single-pane view provides us a view of all of our network infrastructure, and it is one of the most important tools that we use to see the status of our customers' networks.""The customizable reports and dashboards are really flexible. We started this partnership with Centreon, when we were looking for a solution, because of the flexibility of the reporting. That's what we found to be most attractive in the solution. You can display the data as you want.""You can concentrate and orchestrate several other solutions from other vendors. You can consolidate those solutions all in one place, then maintain and monitor from that single point. This creates ease of use. It is a very powerful solution from this point of view.""Centreon helps me detect where the problem is quickly. When we resolve a problem quickly, this lowers our overall costs.""We have the business activity monitoring, the map, and the MBI modules and they are all very good."

"The Event Management feature is quite valuable.""I like the prediction features.""The AI component allows you to check previous cases and diagnose problems easily.""Moogsoft is easily deployable and ready to use."

"As we look to add more servers to our virtual environment and to understand the impact, the solution allows us to dig into the historical charts related to capacity planning.""It did a good job of the collection and then an investigation of the net flow of information for understanding the applications that were being used at certain locations.""The connectivity of the solution is very good.""The product is scalable.""The product is lightweight in terms of memory use, requiring only 10 megabytes or less.""A product that is well-tested and trusted in demanding situations.""The biggest thing for me is that it provided enough information for me to monitor. It alerts and provides you with the information you need.""The initial setup is easy."

Cons
"Improvements are needed in the area of cloud monitoring, as that's a newer feature.""Centreon is actually missing an easy way to create a trendline for the metrics. Actually it is possible to create it, but you need a good knowledge of math, Centreon, and RRD.""I would like to see more plugins. That is something it needs. There is also room for improvement through dynamic thresholds, or self-discover thresholds. I would also like to see a discovery feature that could map the whole network environment and automatically suggest things.""Currently, we have to go through all of the different templates and take a look at how the template is configured, and how specific parameters may change across different templates with different precedents, megatons, etc. It's a lot of work and involves trial and error. I wish they could simplify the process.""During the initial setup we faced some issues. Part of it was because we had to become more knowledgeable in the solution. There are some gray areas and if you don't know the product well you may have issues. Another part of it was some bugs that we came across, although that's part of every software solution in IT nowadays. But the initial setup could be easier.""Opening a ticket on the website of Centreon can be difficult for my colleague, but not for me because my English is good. However, my colleague doesn't speak English well, as our company is in Quebec and our first language is French."

More Centreon Cons »

"The documentation and flexibility for generic integration could be improved.""I would like to see how Moogsoft integrates with the multi-cloud and brings out a single pane of glass, to see everything on one screen.""I would like to see additional reports or information on the dashboard that includes metrics about CPU usage and memory.""They should consider including Chatbot."

More Moogsoft Cons »

"It would be nice if SolarWinds added some technical protocols like Modbus. The market needs a simple solution for monitoring a technical device.""Technical support and releases are not particularly reliable.""The solution's network discovery and node addition processes need more work.""This product could improve by adding cloud monitoring. I want SolarWinds NPM to do much more integration, and have more involvement in cloud monitoring, like AWS or Google, or Azure. I feel like it requires lots of improvement for cloud monitoring in NPM.""Having more technical and support resources available in Saudi Arabia would be helpful.""The solution could improve in many areas, such as the marketing and description of the products, providing areas of improvement, cloud capabilities, and being able to be more streamlined with the current integration points with other applications.""The interface could be made more user-friendly.""There needs to be more integration of widgets, especially for reporting purposes."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"If you need basic monitoring without dashboards, just monitoring, the plugins are very useful and really cheap. If you want a more complete solution with dashboards and reporting, the EMS solution is great and it is not that much more expensive. It's a good value. Really good.""Centreon is better than Nagios XI in regards to cost and support response times, when you have a problem. If you have a problem, it costs money to contact the Nagios XI support.""Their licensing model is really easy. You have one license and you have access to all the features, compared to other tools where you have to purchase add-ons.""Centreon is always available to develop new plugins when needed. The most important thing is that their maintenance account yearly subscription fee includes the fact that they will maintain the new plugins that you requested them to deliver.""The pricing works out well for us, given our environment and where we are."

More Moogsoft Pricing and Cost Advice »

There are additional costs for recourses in the environment."
