Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It is good for giving an overview of the systems and for tracking long-term trends. It is handy for root cause analysis, e.g. it can eliminate whether storage is the cause of an issue.""Among the most valuable features are the queries and reporting that allow us to look at the utilization of resources, at how well the storage is performing, and to report on which resources are being used by which business units. We can track usage across the entire environment, across applications, business units, cost centers, etc.""Its ability to quickly inventory our resources, figure out interdependencies across them, and assemble a topology of your environment is brilliant. There is a price associated with it. Whenever you target a NetApp environment, it is included in the price but whenever you want to add different vendors, like VMware and Cisco, the price greatly spikes. Inventorization helps us a lot to visualize the environment.""Cloud Secure is definitely the most valuable feature and being able to see file level activity. It gives real-time alerting on possible ransomware attacks and provides file security review. It helps us to see if something abnormal is happening on the system before it's too late."

"Nagios is a custom API manager, and we can expose custom APIs for our integration. This is a great feature.""Nagios is stable and it's easy to use the monitoring software, which is why we chose this product.""The solution is pretty stable.""Nagios XI helps us monitor the bandwidth of the internet connection, HTTP, DNS, active directory services, and exchange data availability. We have multiple servers to monitor databases, availability of servers, and ping."

"The most valuable feature is the support for monitoring Cisco switches.""The implementation process is very straightforward.""The most valuable feature is the alert and alarm monitoring.""The best thing about Zabbix is the integration and the APIs that are included are very fast""The integration capabilities and APIs are the best part.""Zabbix is both stable and scalable.""The flexible licensing model is one of the solution's most valuable aspects. It really allows for great flexibility for companies.""The most valuable feature is monitoring."

Cons
"When I did need support because I was having problems with the solution, the first or the second line just didn't understand it. They were providing this only on a software as a service basis. So, they were asking all the wrong questions.""There is room for improving the creating and managing or modifying of reports. That is still a difficult task to do and requires knowledge beyond the storage itself. I would love to see reporting improved so that we can create reports by dragging and dropping pieces into a report form and publish a report that way.""Their pricing model needs improvement.""In a perfect world we would have something built, right out-of-the-box, that can identify what we call "noise," and reduce the amount of data. You're presented with so much data when you first start the data collectors. For example, it brings back a lot of change rates that happen just because of standard computing, like profile changes and that sort of thing. Being able to identify things like that and categorize them and strip it down—and it probably can do that, I just haven't gotten there yet—would be very beneficial."

"We often need to develop custom plugins to get Nagios to work the way we want it to work because the features we need are not always available in Nagios.""The installation and monitoring need improvement.""The pricing has recently risen. I know they've changed what is covered under the license, however, it doesn't change the way we use it and adds nothing to our experience, and yet we now have to pay more.""It is really difficult to integrate Nagios XI with another system to generate logs and alert our management of failures in security infrastructure."

More Nagios XI Cons »

"The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have.""The server monitoring could be better.""If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.""The only improvement I would suggest, revolves around its AI and ML capabilities.""For us, the initial setup was complex""The documentation could be improved.""Having a more customizable interface and dashboard would be an improvement.""I would like to remotely connect to the computer, and Zabbix doesn't have this capability."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing model could be improved. We love that you can use it for free for looking at NetApp products. You only need licenses to look at non-NetApp products, but as soon as you do that, you start utilizing licenses that actually would have been free in the public. So, there is a bit of an anomaly in the licensing model.""Be aware of the capacity licensing and understand how that works, because it is based on capacity. Getting an understanding of that is the biggest thing."

"Nagios Core does not have any payment, but Nagios XI requires payment for the license.""For our country in North Africa, it's expensive and we could purchase another solution for that price. But it's a reasonable price if we're speaking in international terms."

"I was using the free, Community Edition.""We purchased Zabbix for a good price, including support""We are using the free, open-source version.""It's an open-source solution that can be used free of charge.""This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable.""Zabbix is free but if you use it in production then you have to pay for it.""My manager is very happy because it doesn't cost anything.""This is an open-source solution that can be used free of charge."
