Read full review Strengths [Foglight] Monitoring, Alerting and Management of on-prem virtualization and physical servers Historical trending and baselining are excellent and being able to compare a problem period against the same sets of data for a period when there was no issue is especially helpful as part of troubleshooting. Ease of use for end users is appreciated Weaknesses [of Foglight] Creation and management of custom monitors is a developer level activity requiring Groovy skillset Less useful for management of an environment where there is a large amount of custom implementations Commitment to longevity of cartridges/packs for specific subsystems Ability to create custom schedules/alerts/escalations is only available via a 3rd party product (from a former Quest developer) and is not particularly easy to manage/manipulate Lack of API accessibility for external integrations to other analytics (splunk, etc.) Read full review Pros Transferring of files is quick and simple. The interface is easy to use and understand. The setting up of new ftp sites is straight forward. Read full review Database monitoring Database management suite Customization (both monitors and dashboards) Read full review Cons It could be a lot easier to grab a download link. Currently you have to right-click, scroll to "Copy URL," and then pick your desired version of the download URL. There are WAY too many options, and it makes it difficult. I have never needed any option other than the HTTPS version of the URL. So it's overly complicated when it doesn't need to be. There are at times completely unnecessary alert messages that pop up. Usually when connecting to a server to upload a file it will pop up a message that says the connection has been verified and it's safe to continue uploading. It's really unnecessary and annoying to have to dismiss it every time. I think the UI could be a little less cramped. Everything is so close together--really feels like a dated UI. If items were just a bit more spaced out, it would improve the UI significantly.

I really like the basic interface and folder like structure. It makes me feel like I'm in a regular folder window on my Mac. Navigation is simple. The toolbar is customizable to be able to add or remove icons to improve the simplicity and ease of use of the application. The app is very simply designed, which I appreciate.

I've never needed to use their support service. The few issues I've had were user-error and quickly resolved with a little googling
Read full review Alternatives Considered FileZilla
and WinSCP are the two main alternatives to Cyberduck within my organization, and really the two main freeware competitors that I know of. Cyberduck is suited for those without a high level of technical background, and as one might guess, is also the easiest to use and navigate.
and WinSCP are both easier to use when it comes to key storage and SSH configuration, but these are tasks that our IT department does on Cyberduck for users with less technical knowledge. By us doing these tasks, the end business user is able to utilize a simple tool for their needs.
