Centreon
It is a good product that is robust. They have a free version that makes the value good. If it cost money then the install and plugins would need polishing. But overall it is a good product that does what it says it does. But definitely not for beginners you do need some knowledge to set it up and get it running

  • It does have bulk settings tools to set up bulk settings for multiple devices, but to me it could be a bit easier to use. However, I ran into a snag and reached out to support and they are great.
  • It does not support Linux Operating Systems.

Centreon does a good job against these products. Of courseCentreon can be free and that is what we used. So it is not quite the same the other products are more polished and support is readily available. But Centreon is still good and if you have some knowledge can work just as well

We tried some open source solutions. But, they were much more difficult to set up and maintain. PA is easy to use "out of the box". We looked at other paid solutions also, but they were cost prohibitive, since we are a small institution.

  • It has decreased our critical services downtime, because we are able to VPN in and fix issues as soon as Power Admin alerts us of an issue. ROI has been excellent.
  • It allows us to catch issues before they become critical by alerting us on errors that show up in our Event Logs.
