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.

VictorOps is an excellent option for platform alerting and is very cost-effective. For teams of any size, it can be the correct tool. VictorOps success is mainly dependent on the amount of logging and monitoring setup within your platform. If you have little or poor logging, then they may not be anything for VictorOps to act upon.

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.

  • The UI is a little clunky.
  • It's a little tricky to override or shift schedules (i.e., for a particular day in a one-week rotation).

    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.

    Support Rating

    Nagios Enterprises

    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.

    I am going to give this an 8 because I actually haven't had to reach out to customer support. I am using an 8 because the app itself is clear on how to use it so they have done a fine job on allowing me to find answers without having to reach out to support.

    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].

    Both VictorOps and PagerDuty do a great job at hands-off alerting people of all their systems neeeds. If used properly it allows everyone, devs, ops, and managers to see into the status of the systems and see what systems and processes need to be improved based upon the types and frequencies of alerts one is getting.

    Return on Investment

    Nagios Enterprises

    • With it being a free tool, there is no cost associated with it, so it's very valuable to an organization to get something that is so great and widely used for free.
    • You can set up as many alerts as you want without incurring any fees.
