    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.)

    Pros

    Quest Software

    • Foglight NMS is very light on resources given the amount of monitoring connectivity options it provides. It is one of the few that I've trialed in the past that offers SNMP v3 connections.
    • The dashboard is concise with the main areas of interest. It can be customized as well if you have a particular use case.
    • Setting up alerts is straightforward with the ability to set custom thresholds. Alert emails get sent by configuring a primary mail server with the option to add a backup mail server in the event of a primary mail server outage or connectivity issues.

        Alternatives Considered

        Quest Software

        We were previously using Oracle to monitor resources across servers and networks. In general, that product was alright but the Foglight alerts are far superior to Oracle. The business goal of using Foglight is really to minimize business interruption costs so the faster and more noticeable the alerts, the better the product is at solving our problems.
