    Nagios Enterprises

    Nagios is best suited in an large organization where it is production 24/7, but in SME (small/medium enterprise) you have to pay a lot to the administrator. Instead use some graphical and easy to use tool like IDERA.

    Cons

    Nagios Enterprises

    • The mobile interface is newly developed and needs more development. It should provide more options for the audit log and add more detail for the configuration rollback options.
    • The scheduled report should be included in standard edition.
    • Master Node is configurable on LINUX platform only. We had to hire a Linux administrator

    Support Rating

    Nagios Enterprises

    Only because I never give out 10s. Nagios support goes above and beyond in helping with issues, workarounds, specific cases and requirements. Tracks customer implementation and history of the most important issues. Can’t complain (except that the team is small and quite probably overworked). Time to resolution could be much improved if only there were more folks to help around.

    Alternatives Considered

    Nagios Enterprises

    Cost efficiency is the main reason which we opted [for] Nagios as we were previously using IDERA tool with comprehensive database monitoring solutions, but the slow performance we are getting while monitoring the instance of the database.

    Pandora FMS LLC

    Before using Pandora FMS, tests were carried out with all these tools:
    • Nagios
    • Zabbix
    • System Center Operations Manager (SCOM)
    • IBM Tivoli
    • PRTG
    • SolarWinds
    Pandora FMS allows simple customization by making adjustments to text files, developing agent add-ons without the need to be a programmer, there is no scenario where we could not take data and save it in PandoraFMS, IoT, industrial products, and everything that any client needs to monitor.

    Nagios Enterprises

    • Reduction of at least 10% of false alarms.

    Pandora FMS LLC

    • It is a tool with an appropriate cost that allows to have results in a very limited time.
    • Having a health dashboard and alerts of important business in the company is an important differential with any other monitoring solution on the market.
    • Monitoring can be adjusted to the business, considering service SLAs and adjusting the platform according to the needs of each department of the company.
