    This software is suited for a smaller organization with a small datacenter that uses mainly HP hardware. Once the environment gets larger it would pay to move to some of their paid for products

    Cons

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise

    • I think some of the areas that HP Systems Insight Manager can improve is non HP hardware.
    • This software also sometimes struggles handling larger environments.
    • This software also has issues managing environments that aren't set up perfectly.

      Usability

      For basic functions it's very easy to set up and use. However, for more advanced functions it takes a lot of time to figure out its quirks

      Alternatives Considered

      Hewlett Packard Enterprise

      Some of the other products I use for system management are HP SiteScope and SolarWinds Orion NPM and APM. SiteScope is another good HP product but it isn't very cost effective to use for general system management. It's good for performing complex alerting and monitoring. SolarWinds makes a great product but it is better geared for gathering statistics and performance data real-time and historically. Again the cost of this product makes it ineffective for general system monitoring.

      Before using Pandora FMS, tests were carried out with all these tools:
      • Nagios
      • Zabbix
      • System Center Operations Manager (SCOM)
      • IBM Tivoli
      • PRTG
      • SolarWinds
      Pandora FMS allows simple customization by making adjustments to text files, developing agent add-ons without the need to be a programmer, there is no scenario where we could not take data and save it in PandoraFMS, IoT, industrial products, and everything that any client needs to monitor.

      Return on Investment

      Hewlett Packard Enterprise

      • Since this software is free if you buy HP hardware the cost is nothing which is nice for cash strapped businesses.
      • This software has a somewhat difficult time handling large environments where systems are not configured perfectly for this software.
      • I would always recommend having multiples of this software installed for redundancy because generally unless it and the environment is properly configured it can require maintenance.

      Pandora FMS LLC

      • It is a tool with an appropriate cost that allows to have results in a very limited time.
      • Having a health dashboard and alerts of important business in the company is an important differential with any other monitoring solution on the market.
      • Monitoring can be adjusted to the business, considering service SLAs and adjusting the platform according to the needs of each department of the company.
