Its very good and easy to do custom polling by importing MIB files where we had challenges to do out of box monitoring. Integration is easy.

LogicMonitor
Well Suited to: - MSPs with multiple clients - Network segmentation where a single device can't communicate to everything and collection devices are needed in each environment Not well suited for: - Management functions that would need to change settings on a device - Self contained environments with no outside network access

Pros
Hewlett Packard Enterprise
  • Multivendor flexibility.
  • Topology map features.
  • Backup configurations.

LogicMonitor
  • LogicMonitor is very customizable. We can build whatever modules we need, because it uses standard protocols like HTTPS, SNMP and WMI to gather data and metrics.
  • We like that LogicMonitor is an agentless solution for our use case. Not all customers will allow an agent-based approach to 3rd party tools.
  • LogicMonitor has thousands of out of the box modules, which work on their own and also act as good baselines for the ones that we will end up customizing more. We are rarely starting at zero when we decide to do something new with LogicMonitor.
  • LogicMonitor has great documentation, and support has been helpful in the instances where we've needed them.

Cons

LogicMonitor
  • While there are numerous instructional videos and documentation available online, customer support could be enhanced.
  • It would be beneficial if the graphical interface could be made more responsive through update.
  • Monitoring options should include descriptive text or explanation to help beginners understand their functions.

This product has met virtually all of our needs. It was easy to implement and has been simple to support. Customization has been intuitive with many options available. They keep adding features and expanding available options. The future of LogicMonitor looks even better than it is today which is very promising. The management and support teams at LogicMonitor are always helpful

Set up is super easy. Just stand up a small Linux or Windows server to act as a collector. There are no agents to install on monitored devices and all you need is SNMP or WMI access. When creating dashboards, all you have to do is find the widget on the device you want to show up and choose the menu option to add it.

They are fast responding when you create a support case. But they also have a forum (community) where you can find knowledge-base information that is very useful.

The sales team support we received was top notch. They worked hand in hand to make sure the product met all expectations. So far we have not really had to work with support that much; we have worked with setup team after purchase to deploy product fully. No issues so far and we are four weeks in.

We were up and running on LogicMonitor within a few week. This includes the setup/configuration of about 100 assets. Implementation as smooth and had zero challenges with the LogicMonitor technology. The challenges were related to the target technologies we were adding. This will be a challenge with any monitoring platform, not just LogicMonitor

Cause of the great gui and easy management can be customized to your liking. The awesome topology maps you can make easy to change make it your own design. Great support. Don't need a large database to run. Can handle multiple users at once with ease. Overall a great product recommend to anyone

After switching from Solarwinds to LogicMonitor we would never go back. The higher price for LogicMonitor is well worth all the areas that this platform excels when compared to Solarwinds. The support is great, they are available directly through the web portal in a chat and I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes. With Solarwinds I dreaded having to open a support ticket knowing that I would be lucky to exchange one email per day with the engineer on the ticket. The web portal always works and has good performance for all of our global users. Our Solarwinds platform required constant babysitting by the server team and anyone outside of the region where we had it hosted had serious performance issues. Upgrades on LogicMonitor happen in the background with no downtime. Upgrades on Solarwinds always had something go wrong that would result in partial or complete loss of the system for days while we did troubleshooting with support.

Pricing seems to be getting more and more aggressive, I worry that it's going to turn into ServiceNow or SAP and everything minor feature will be an extreme cost that prices out us and our customers

Haven't really used it but our initial onboarding PS was disappointing. Felt like we were being told what we needed to cover as opposed to what we wanted to cover. In addition, we were pushed into using the PS in tight time frames and we were not ready to do so.

  • definitely adds a good amount of cost to any account which is not easy to sell to SMBs
  • it does give a piece of mind knowing that everything is monitored and alerts will go out before users know something is not working
