Likelihood to Recommend

AppNeta

AppNeta is well suited any place where there are customer facing applications where speed/efficiency determines the customer perception of business service.

Nagios

Nagios is primarily an open source technology. It's very well suited for environments that either work on a restricted budget and require a solution that can be customized heavily to fit. I would not recommend it to anyone with a limited time frame, tech skills, or someone looking for a canned monitoring or data collecting solution.

Pros

  • AppNeta provides detailed application availability & uptime.
  • AppNeta provides great longitudinal data regarding how the applications perform including an overall grade or "AppDex."
  • AppNeta sends notifications of service downtime that aids in technical dispatch.

  • Nagios Map integration to have a visual state of WAN checks.
  • Checks based on groups that allows inheritance for each new infrastructure component added.
  • Simplicity of use and the web interface and installation.
  • Stability of product for years.

Cons

  • AppNeta could bundle all of their applications together. We received a demo for TraceView which allows insight on specific DB & API calls which is very valuable, but was not part of our original agreement/pricing structure.

  • The monitoring configuration is quite manual in Nagios.
  • There is a bit of a learning curve in writing Nagios perl scripts.
  • The application is not quite scalable.

We're currently looking to combine a bunch of our network montioring solutions into a single platform. Running multiple unique solutions for monitoring, data collection, compliance reporting etc has become a lot to manage.

The Nagios UI is in need of a complete overhaul. Nice graphics and trendy fonts are easy on the eyes, but the menu system is dated, the lack of built in graphing support is confusing, and the learning curve for a new user is too steep.

Alternatives Considered

We currently use Nagios/GroundWork and Cacti to perform network monitoring. AppNeta's UI is far superior.

Nagios is a good start, but as soon as an alert is triggered, you have to go searching and digging. It's better as a trigger and integrated with more robust, intelligent monitoring tools
