Azure Monitor

We were able to get a single pane of glass for all our monitoring needs on Azure Monitor. However, we would like to see it improve to auto scale out and scale in depending on the load without human intervention. This can help us get to the No Ops model and rely on automated processes rather than manual intervention.

Nagios XI

Nagios XI is suitable for inexpensive and very detailed monitoring of the physical hosts and VMs. Both Windows and Linux. This would require configuring 2-3 ways of monitoring for the same set of hosts and some time spent to fine tune the configurations. It may also be used for SQL and Apache front-ends such as Tomcat, Glassfish, etc.

Nagios XI

  • Robust, but visually old interface. Requires a lot of work to become presentable.
  • Small selection of dashlets to construct new views.
  • No MS Azure monitoring ability, nothing for “as service,” very limited Amazon cloud monitoring abilities.
  • Questionable price politics (could make it a lot less for developing markets to actually increase use of the product and R&D budgets).
  • No report designers nor the ability to create new reports. No changes in this area for years.
  • Overall lack of new developments, making this product more and more outdated.

I have not had to work with Azure Monitor support, so it is difficult to say how well the support team is. I assume that Azure has a well-versed team on the customer service side to assist with any issues customers may have. I may need them in the feature.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Monitor

While other tools have their own unique capability, Azure Monitor helps us monitor essential PAAS services that are not supported by other tools. So even though we have one other APM tool, we still rely on Azure Monitor for some of the special PAAS services, this is a huge advantage.

Nagios XI

Nagios XI is better supported vs SolarWinds, needs less manual administration work vs Datadog and a lot less expensive for a long as you are willing to compromise on the look and some functionalities. Moreover, SolarWinds database design prevents one from storing any meaningful data for an extended period of time (creating averages of the averages of the averages), where Nagios could be set for keeping years of detailed information without large storage or the overutilized DB engine. In both Datadog and SolarWinds trials we could not get answers to many of our questions, configure working solutions out of the box by using the inline documentation. Nagios XI does not have limitations, offers such as AppOptics impose on the customers (making it very expensive and absolutely not a real life product). Overall, Nagios XI is a great tool, requiring a lot of R&D “yesterday” to make it beat all the competition on all fronts. That is assuming you have an extensive knowledge in the many areas of IT (thus knowing what should be monitored and how to interpret the data).
