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

Splunk
Splunk IT Essentials scales really well and is quite suitable for large enterprise environments which is where I use it. It can easily handle the classification and ingest of metrics/log data from thousands of devices. It also allows for easy grouping of these devices so that users can search just for Windows devices, or just for Linux machines. Provides a great overview of enterprise health while allowing deeper dives into the device level of data.

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

Splunk
If you've used any Splunk product then you know they have a good reputation for creating smart and user-friendly tools. Splunk IT Essentials is no different and I have had nothing but positive experiences with it. It was a straightforward integration with our enterprise environment. And it can also be leverage, as we did, when moving to ITSI as well.
