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.

ScienceLogic SL1 is a very logical and powerful ideal software for monitoring every kind of technology in my organization, like servers, CPU, network, email, and many more. Their support team is very unparalleled and very proactive 24/7. While using this tool, any glitch in the network becomes easy to detect and can be detected and stopped. It's the best monitoring tool and is very recommended.

Pros

Nagios Enterprises

  • 3rd party integrations via open API.
  • Extremely flexible and configurable long term storage of the very detailed performance information (years of per 1-5 min perf data numbers).
  • Small Nagios XI footprint (very efficient MySQL DB and flat files for perf data), making it powerful tool for thousands of checks and hundreds of reports.
  • Responsive support, willing to provide resolution outside the box and by various means possible.

ScienceLogic

  • Business Services are a welcome addition to the capabilities of the SL1 platform
  • Collections capabilities. Being able to ingest multiple forms of data streams to provide a more holistic view of an environment
  • Giving the clients the freedom to apply specific monitoring that is tailored to their environments

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

ScienceLogic

  • Dashboards have limitations in a couple of large enterprise use cases. New UI appears to be addressing these as it matures and resembles techniques seen in other enterprise tools
  • Percentiles and baseline / deviation calculations on standard metrics are not what we've seen in the past from enterprise tools. However, more complex anomaly detection is now available as an advanced function

    We migrated away from our 20-year-old homegrown solution and have no back-tracking capability. ScienceLogic is demonstrating new capabilities that we would not have been able to do on our own using our legacy system.
    We understand the capabilities of competitors based on our bake-off selection where ScienceLogic won on capabilities and future near-term potential (expandability, platform growth). We know that those competitors are not really close to where we have been able to push ScienceLogic (as a partner).

    Product is capable of monitoring different
    technologies like OS, MS Infra apps, cloud services, Databases, network etc...
    this can be a single solution for most of the technologies end to end monitoring

    It is more flexible for customization and

    Reliability and Availability

    ScienceLogic

    Science Logic SL1 provides the option of Distributed deployment where multiple instances of each appliance can be deployed to manage the load and availability. SL1 provides a High Availability feature for Database Servers and Data Collection. If one of the Data Collectors in the collector group fails, it will automatically redistribute the devices from the failed Data Collector among the other Data Collectors in the Collector Group. The high availability feature for the Database server ensures that SL1 performs failover automatically to another server without causing the outage to the application.

    Performance

    Nagios Enterprises

    ScienceLogic

    The performance is entirely dependent on the complexity of the environment/network being used to host the platform. Outside of those factors, the platform runs very efficiently and quickly out of the box. We have integrations with other platforms and neither seem to take a hit from our moderate API usage. Any issues with performance would be experienced by choices made in infrastructure or complexity of things built by the customer to display in the GUI (overly complicated and cluttered dashboards for example)

    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.

    ScienceLogic

    So far, it's good as part of my overall experience, except for a couple of use cases. The support team is well knowledgeable, has technical sound, and is efficient. When support escalates to engineering, the issue gets stuck and takes months to resolve.

    On our side (students), we had a number of teams who were provided the deep developer training.
    Of those students, the customized training provided a complete, 5 day training which enabled the deployed platform team to successfully deploy and mitigate user-experience issues for the vast majority of our end-users, including some of the teams who attended the developer training.

    The knowledge kept pace with the class and sped up / slowed down (within the time constraints) as needed throughout the course.

    This was developer to developer training and for those students who were developers the training worked well. For those who were just coders it probably worked less well as some of the topics still do not apply (a function of our course outline specification based on our knowing nothing).

    Due to problems in sequencing we did the developer course BEFORE the admin course and realized that our requested ORDER was wrong.

    The onsite admin course was much better received and led to deeper understanding of the developer course held a few weeks prior.

    As far as Implementation is concerned, i think I never ran into any major trouble (whatever it is, it's just local infrastructure specific). Once all your NW ports and connectivity is in place, it won't take much of your time to install the product. configurations are also easy to complete. VM configuration takes no time, except the environmental configuration which is company specific. Onboarding is easy via SNMP based monitoring.

    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.

    ScienceLogic

    As I stated earlier, SL1 seems to be best used for Servers and Network Storage devices. It doesn't seem to be a direct replacement as SL1 doesn't have a configuration management piece, visual maps are very crude and not user-friendly, and the building of the maps is not intuitive, nor has the functionality of Solarwinds Topology Mapper.

    Scalability

    Nagios Enterprises

    No answers on this topic

    ScienceLogic

    Our deployment model is vastly different from product expectations. Our global / internal monitoring foot print is 8 production stacks in dual data centers with 50% collection capacity allocated to each data center with minimal numbers of collection groups. General Collection is our default collection group. Special Collection is for monitoring our ASA and other hardware that cannot be polled by a large number of IP addresses, so this collection group is usually 2 collectors). Because most of our stacks are in different physical data centers, we cannot use the provided HA solution. We have to use the DR solution (DRBD + CNAMEs). We routinely test power in our data centers (yearly). Because we have to use DR, we have a hand-touch to flip nodes and change the DNS CNAME half of the times when there is an outage (by design). When the outage is planned, we do this ahead of the outage so that we don't care that the Secondary has dropped away from the Primary. Hopefully, we'll be able to find a way to meet our constraints and improve our resiliency and reduce our hand-touch in future releases. For now, this works for us and our complexity. (I hear that the HA option is sweet. I just can't consume that.)

    Return on Investment

    Nagios Enterprises

    • Reduction of at least 10% of false alarms.
    • Increased network traffic by 5%.

    • we are still in the process of implementation
    • after all of our production devices are onboarded to SL1, we will be able to bring network monitoring in-house instead of it being outsourced as it is now
    • I am Engineer/SL1 user only, therefore I cannot comment on ROI or similar numbers
