Opsview Monitor

If you know Nagios or Nagios-like monitoring systems, OpsView will be really easy for you to learn and manage. Migrations process will be relatively easy. You're getting great U/I that will speed up adding new objects to the system and present data in a clear, organized way. In addition it's easy to create dedicated dashboards for your clients.

Sensu

Sooner or later, companies are going to figure out that there's more to monitoring than what Nagios can provide. For those that want to dip their toe in the water and still provide backward compatibility with a legacy Nagios environment, Sensu is a good choice.It's mainly for businesses that want more than Nagios but don't want to take the full plunge with something radically different and metric-based such as Prometheus.Having moved to metric-based monitoring so far as I'm able, I can say with confidence that it's far better than what Nagios or Sensu provide.

Pros

Opsview Monitor

  • Easily extensible. We write many of our own monitoring plugins for Opsview and use open source Nagios community plugins as well
  • Quick to deploy. Don't need to worry about all of the dependencies that you need to with something like Nagios
  • It just works. Most of the housekeeping tasks are completely automated
  • Nice visualizations and dashboards

Sensu

  • Unique concept as a "monitoring router" that can tie services together.
  • Backward-compatible with Nagios environments.
  • More of a DevOps focus than Nagios.

Cons

Opsview Monitor

Sensu

  • Terrible documentation that assumes you're already an expert in everything that Sensu can do.
  • Significantly more work than Nagios to get basic checks on and configured.
  • Web interface is primitive and not even on the same level as Nagios XI.
  • Large price hikes after Sensu Go was released.

Sensu's customer support was always willing to work with us but never really seemed to learn much from our experiences. I think they get a lot of customers with DevOps IT teams that are willing to put in a lot of elbow grease to get the most of Sensu's architecture.However, despite explaining my continued disappointment with their documentation and the overall flow of the product, I never got much more than a "sorry" and a notice that their documentation was open source if I wanted to contribute to it.The problem, of course, is that you can't document what you don't understand. I'm a former technical writer, so I know that better than most.

Opsview Monitor

Nagios and Zabbix - Opsview is much easier to setup and operate than both of them.SolarWinds Orion - Opsview is much more economical

Sensu

We initially compared Sensu to Nagios XI. Nagios has languished for years and clearly wouldn't scale well without a lot of effort, while Sensu's architecture was clearly designed to be better at scaling horizontally.

Sensu

  • Standing up the Sensu Go server took very little effort.
  • Setting up and maintaining the build processes and deployment logic for Sensu assets and checks was somewhat exhausting and resulted in lower adoption among non-DevOps IT.
  • The limited web interface resulted in lower adoption among non-DevOps IT.
