ManageEngine OpManager

Great for managing infrastructure on the same LAN. Does not work to monitor Azure/AWS metrics.
humberto martinez | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Pros

ManageEngine OpManager

  • Central Console for top-down view.
  • Custom alerts to alert me of high-traffic usage.
  • Custom reports for management.

Nagios XI

  • Nagios XI has an exclusive feature of bulk modification of attributes that help in monitoring the same set on monitoring modules on a newly set up environment.
  • It allows you to monitor many network devices, such as switches, routers, servers, and is helping to monitor network performance and track traffic on the network interface.
  • The audit trails feature allows us to scrutinize the modification or setup.

Cons

ManageEngine OpManager

  • Some legacy products is complicated to add.
  • They need to study about MIB files to customize certain values.
  • Network knowledge is needed to configure the SNMP on the routers and configure the server where the Opmanager will be so that it can reach all your networks.

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  • Overall lack of new developments, making this product more and more outdated.

Alternatives Considered

ManageEngine OpManager

The other competing products in functionality stack up pretty good but pricing is always a lot higher for what you get with the other solutions for small/medium sized companies use.
Ray Koch | TrustRadius Reviewer

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).
