Single window to look for hardware statistics and application monitoring. Easy to configure, and a lot of stuff is available online related to its configuration. However, the team at Munin should work on the mobile applications as well and also look for bundling professional services at a cost. That will be helpful for startups to hook to Munin instead of running across websites for the integration.

If you have to manage a large number of computers, especially spread over multiple clients or a large physical area. This is one of the main products that allows us to act as a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and actually manage our clients devices and not just react to issues as clients call them in. Clients really love the proactive approach it allows us to take.
Read full review Pros Hardware stats. Application stats. Ease of admin. Simple interface. Read full review It monitors computers and notifies us of any issues with any computer. It allows remote control of computers, such as requesting a computer to reboot itself. It is very highly configurable to monitor exactly what we need to monitor. For example, on server, we can have it notify us any time the server is shutdown or rebooted. On the other hand, for a desktop computer, we don't have to be bothered with notifications when a user decides to reboot his computer. Read full review Cons Mobile application. Pre builtin modules for unix, cisco, hp devices. Alert Notifications over SMS and call. Web hook integrations with Slack, pagerduty etc. Read full review It would be nice if they increased their scope of supported third-party apps. It would be great if they would create an ios app for their ticket system. If they could possibly build in a location service for tracking devices, that would be helpful. If they had two-factor authentication, it would be nice. Read full review Usability
Pulseway is very user friendly. The system is labeled in terms and grouped together by function so that anyone can understand and locate the functions that they need. We use this system to monitor a file server that we have that can have an unstable power supply. This allows us to easily see that the system is offline and get it back to operational with minimal downtime.

I haven't really needed much support for Pulseway, so I can't really say a whole lot about their support. Pulseway has been pretty much trouble-free for us. There are regular updates and new features. The updates never seem to break anything or cause problems. It just works.

Ease of admin and relatively easy to configure. People have been using it for decades, so the market is well aware of its functionality, and you will get answers to most of the questions or problems. Community support is also there to seek advice. In a nutshell, people are well aware, and it's stable.

Pulseway has the most features, the best looking app with the best design and better usability than any others we evaluated. We liked the uniformity of the app design across all platforms (Windows, Android, Apple) and the notifications displayed on each platform. The price was a major contributor to our selection of Pulseway compared to the competition.
Read full review Return on Investment Problems can be dealt with more rapidly because I have access to systems from anywhere. I don't have to carry a computer with me nor do I have to find a location with potentially non-secure wifi to gain access to my systems. I can handle 99% of my system admin tasks using Pulseway and never have to touch a system or connect to the console. Pulseway gives so much control over a system that I don't need to spend extra money on other software to perform management tasks. Read full review ScreenShots
