    Foglight

    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.)

    Intermapper

    Intermapper is a light weight, quick and easy to use monitoring application. It will get you up and monitoring key infrastructure devices with a simple management interface and effective alert system that doesn't generate a lot of noise. It provides mobile device access through a web interface and is relatively inexpensive.

    Pros

    Foglight

    • 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.

    Intermapper

    • The best thing about Intermapper is that it is map-based. You start by building your map, which is done completely automatically. I've used many different monitoring software packages, Solarwinds, Nagios, Opmanager, and it is a royal PITA to create live maps with those.
    • Another great feature is that it shows you, visually, the bandwidth utilization of your network by using "ants" and color codes. Incredibly useful.
    • Alarms are very easy to setup, again much easier than the packages mentioned above.

    Cons

    Foglight

    • GUI interface is difficult to navigate
    • No APM capabilities. They left this space about a year ago
    • We have had issues with the GUI response times. On a regular basis, the interface can take several minutes to refresh

    Intermapper

    • Setting up probes in bulk can be difficult, so it can take a long time to get the system set up correctly to start.
    • Sometimes the probes can be sensitive and report false positives.
    • Interface can be a little clunky and non intuitive at times.

    The product works well and is very easy to maintain. As such, we haven't had many occasions to use support. When we have called them they were easy to contact and responsive to our questions. We have had the product for years and it may have been a year or better since the last time we contacted them.

    I have experienced great business insights from the operation of this product on our data and work environment. It closely monitors workflows to ensure that there is positive and regulated outcomes that meets company standards. It detects problems in early stages to avoid critical cases that can lead to higher cost and time wastage. It prepares data and all workloads to make the process of migration from our company to cloud servers more simple.

    Intermapper

    Intermapper is a cross between WhatsUp Gold and Nagios. WhatsUp Gold being for a less technical end-user and Nagios doing more than just SNMP scans and up down monitoring.

    Return on Investment

    • Positive - near instant alerts help combat potential problems quickly
    • Positive - minimizes business interruption
    • Positive - limits disruptions to productivity

    • Downtime costs money. Every minute we can get ahead of an outage is time that a plant is not sitting there waiting. We don't need to wait for a call from a plant, we know they are down immediately and we can begin troubleshooting.
