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.

Netwrix Auditor

Netwrix Auditor is well suited to perform audit data collection on many types of servers that require audit data to be collected. It runs fairly quickly and usually informs you if something went wrong in the data collection. They do need to have better documentation and some form of internal documentation to help the users who understand what is happening in their system to help them through the process of figuring out when something went wrong.

Pros

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.

  • Netwrix Auditor sends out warnings to users when their passwords are close to expiring. This saves us some headache, because if they have any problems with changing their password, we can help them before they get locked out.
  • The notifications for multiple failed logons is a lifesaver. Very useful for spotting suspicious activity!
  • I love the way that you can create your own custom notifications and reports through the "Search" function. You can pick the "What", "Where", and "When" for the event you want to monitor and set up email email reports for them.

Cons

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  • Overall lack of new developments, making this product more and more outdated.

  • They have a screen capture function that I have never been able to get to work properly. However, I have never called their support on this issue so it is not necessarily a big ding against them. I am only mildly interested in this feature. We have enough network monitoring so I already know what my users are doing I don't need a capture.

We have renewed already the licensing of the product minus SQL Server and Oracle Database because the organisation believes the modules are very expensive and have identified a different product for auditing DatabasesOther modules are very important like the User Activity monitor, AD queries that we can not get from the native AD itself or you have to run complicated powershell scripts!Easy to use interfacePre-defined ReportsEasy way to subscribe to important alerts e.g Privilege account group membership changes

The product has user friend pre-defined queries which takes off the stress and horrors of having to query Active Directory with complex Powershell scripts!You can subscribe to certain functions when they are done and you get an alert e.g privileged accounts actions and you don't need to have programming skillsThe product has a desktop version of the software and donot have to login to the server all the time you need to use it.You can see very fast the posture of your environment of the overview screen and deduce what exactly is wrong and what has to be done

Customer support has always been fast and helpful when we run into any issues. The smaller issues are usually resolved within a day or two. It is great support and I feel like I am in good hands anytime an issue comes up. However, we don't run into many issues

Alternatives Considered

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).

Netwrix Auditor

Netwrix Auditor is a visibility and governance platform that allows you to monitor changes, configurations and access in IT infrastructure of important IT infrastructure components such as Active Directory, event logs, Exchange, Office 365, SQL Server, and others. Apart from that - what’s wonderful about this tool is that you can view before/after snapshots of your managed data. For instance, you can view Group Policy data as it existed before one of your colleagues made some blocking edits to the domain policy.

Return on Investment

Nagios XI

  • Reduction of at least 10% of false alarms.
  • Increased network traffic by 5%.
Eduin Zuloaga | TrustRadius Reviewer

Netwrix Auditor

  • Neutral on its effectiveness - Difficult to set up, poor support response from the supplier, but it does the basics well. We might not make the same decision with the benefit of hindsight.
  • If you lack technical skills in AD security and have little other choice for monitoring tools and automated alerts then this may be a good purchase for you.
  • With the stability issues that we are fighting with, I would say currently this has not yet met the business objectives set for this purchase.
