    Nagios monitoring is well suited for any mission critical application that requires per/second (or minute) monitoring. This would probably include even a shuttle launch. As Nagios was built around Linux, most (85%) plugins are Linux based, therefore its more suitable for a Linux environment.
    As Nagios (and dependent components) requires complex configurations & compilations, an experienced Linux engineer would be needed to install all relevant components.
    Any company that has hundreds (or thousands) of servers & services to monitor would require a stable monitoring solution like Nagios. I have seen Nagios used in extremely mediocre ways, but the core power lies when its fully configured with all remaining open-source components (i.e. MySQL, Grafana, NRDP etc). Nagios in the hands of an experienced Linux engineer can transform the organizations monitoring by taking preventative measures before a disaster strikes.

    Uptrends has more than 100 checkpoints all around the world. Which helps to track product performance and uptime in 1, 5, 10, or more minutes check interval. Alerts with error info got during checks help to determine issue type and transfer it to the relevant department. A synthetic check needs some improvements to cover standard web application needs, but recording those scripts is very easy with google extension.

    Cons

    Nagios Enterprises

    • Nagios could use core improvements in HA, though, Nagios itself recommends monitoring itself with just another Nagios installation, which has worked fine for us. Given its stability, and this work-around, a minor need.
    • Nagios could also use improvements, feature wise, to the web gui. There is a lot in Nagios XI which I felt were almost excluded intentionally from the core project. Given the core functionality, a minor need. We have moved admin facing alerts to appear as though they originate from a different service to make interacting with alerts more practical.

    • Custom alert text option on mail
    • The synthetic tool needs some improvement when the last used device has not to support for recording scenarios in iframe located elements.

    We're currently looking to combine a bunch of our network montioring solutions into a single platform. Running multiple unique solutions for monitoring, data collection, compliance reporting etc has become a lot to manage.

    Usability

    Nagios Enterprises

    The Nagios UI is in need of a complete overhaul. Nice graphics and trendy fonts are easy on the eyes, but the menu system is dated, the lack of built in graphing support is confusing, and the learning curve for a new user is too steep.

    I haven't had to use support very often, but when I have, it has been effective in helping to accomplish our goals. Since Nagios has been very popular for a long time, there is also a very large user base from which to learn from and help you get your questions answered.

    Support average response time is 24 hours, which is quite a significant time when having some issues and needs help. They have notification issues as well. I mean, when a customer needs to be notified, for example canceling anything related acc maybe they sent notification and service suspend immediately, no pre notifications to act and be ready not to be blind.

    Alternatives Considered

    Nagios Enterprises

    Because we get all we required in Nagios [Core] and for npm, we have to do lots of configuration as it is not as easy as Comair to Nagios [Core]. On npm UI, there is lots of data, so we are not able to track exact data for analysis, which is why we use Nagios [Core].

    The price range is good if compared with the following tools. Alerts are informative, easy to connect with chat ops software, like slack, which is widely used by teams in my company. Performance measurement, which can be tracked day by day and can be delivered to stakeholders, all this made me decide to choose this tool.
