DX Infrastructure Manager (formerly CA UIM)

Well Suited:- Multiple units (you may split Nimsoft per Groups, companies, etc.)- When your Business Teams NEED Dashboards (they'll love it after they learn how to use, for example, if they discover that the may even run SQL queries together with monitor the webpage of the application, and display business data)Less appropriate:- If you are beginning to monitor your environment (because you need to know your environment at least a little bit to check if the entire set of monitoring Nimsoft plugins will really help you or you will only use it to ping your application)- If you don't have at least one (i do recommend 2 or 3 after some short time) people dedicated to deploy and fine-tune the monitoring. The tool is really good, but if you don't have anyone working on it, you will notice that you're spending money in an elephant to kill an ant or worst, that you passed the entire year, and still have the same problems of the last year, cause no one put the hands enough time in the tool. I saw this happening during the first year when I was the only one working with the tool and still supporting the entire team.

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.

Cons

DX Infrastructure Manager (formerly CA UIM)

  • I'd like to see improvements in inventory management. Currently node management isn't as efficient as I'd like.
  • I also see a big opportunity to offer greater customization in the Detail Tab. I'd like the ability to pick and chose which metrics are displayed by default in the Detail Tab snapshot.

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  • Overall lack of new developments, making this product more and more outdated.

DX Infrastructure Manager (formerly CA UIM)

All tools have their own gaps , some seem to do more than others, some just work better. With UIM we have found a sweet spot with features, price point, pros, cons, etc

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).
