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.
Well suited when server monitoring, not well suited for non system administrators. Need to have server knowledge to get full understanding of product
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.
Real-time high-resolution metric monitoring. Data can be collected and viewed at 1-second resolution.Visualization of line chartsCloud hosted
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
The interface is functional and adaptable but I kind of wish it looked like its predecessor Patrol Monitor.It is somewhat hard to understand the integrations into the UI.Hoping for more metric choices.
No setup fee
Pricing reflect discount for annual subscription. Month to month pricing is $12 for Standard, $15 for Advanced
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.
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.
Datadog seems to have more freedom to build dashboards. They have more visualization types. However, Pulse seems to be better from a cost stand point. Pulse is able to accomplish everything we need, so no need to spend the extra cost.
Reduction of at least 10% of false alarms.Increased network traffic by 5%.
Positive in alert notifications.Positive in keeping environment up time.Positive in being able to monitor various metrics and meters.
