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.

Power Admin PA Server Monitor works great for our needs. We do however wish that it worked for Linux Operating Systems.

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

Power Admin LLC

  • It does have bulk settings tools to set up bulk settings for multiple devices, but to me it could be a bit easier to use. However, I ran into a snag and reached out to support and they are great.
  • It does not support Linux Operating Systems.

    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.

    We tried some open source solutions. But, they were much more difficult to set up and maintain. PA is easy to use "out of the box". We looked at other paid solutions also, but they were cost prohibitive, since we are a small institution.

    Power Admin LLC

    • It has decreased our critical services downtime, because we are able to VPN in and fix issues as soon as Power Admin alerts us of an issue. ROI has been excellent.
    • It allows us to catch issues before they become critical by alerting us on errors that show up in our Event Logs.
