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.

Site24x7

While Site24x7 can monitor almost anything, it is the most cost effective when using its basic monitor. The basic monitor covers certificate health, web sites/services, general server health, IIS health, and much more. The advanced monitors cover SQL, Microsoft Failover Clustering, etc. but even though we get three advanced monitors with the initial subscription, we don't use them because the SQL monitoring can be very noisy without some fine-tuning. It wasn't uncommon to get woken up at 3 am because of a SQL anomaly that tripped a metric.

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

Site24x7

  • Very clean website UI. Tests are well categorized and navigation is very simple.
  • The accompanying mobile app is very useful when on the go as it can also notify you of any issues.
  • The cost of the platform is very cheap and the cost also scales at a low amount.
  • No on-premise footprint. All cloud-based.

Cons

Opsview Monitor

  • pricey
  • build in cloud monitoring packs need to be improved
  • smb version is missing some powerfull features

Site24x7

  • Analysis: Site24x7 sends a report when a site is back up, with an "analysis" of the outage. The idea is to help pinpoint the cause, but it's almost always useless.
  • Overalerting on larger outages: Site24x7 sends an alert on every site that we have configured when they go down. A hierarchical setup would be better, or some way for it to recognize that if more than two sites are down simultaneously, it only needs to send one alert with that information. Getting 12 text messages at 1 AM is not fun.
  • Complex setup: It takes a long time to set up everything for monitoring. Automation would be nice.

I have only had to use support once, so I can't go into much detail about their support team. The one time I did use it the response was fast but the resolution took some time.

Alternatives Considered

Opsview Monitor

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

Site24x7

Each solution excels in their own areas. Site24x7 provides the easiest and most cost-effective transactional monitoring from the previous and existing solutions which we use. However, Solarwinds Orion suite, which includes the virtualization manager, gives us full-stack monitoring of our VMware environment, which Site24x7 cannot. In the same way, Cloudwatch gives us better visibility into our AWS workloads compared to SolarWinds.AlertSite was previously used for our transactional monitoring, and while the configuration of transactions and playback with Deja Click plugin was incredibly beneficial, it didn't justify the cost difference to Site24x7.

Return on Investment

Opsview Monitor

  • helps to discover and remediate infrastructure problems quickly
  • helps to present SLA diagrams for clients
  • speeds up deployment proces for new solutions

Site24x7

  • We are better able to be notified of critical downtime, allowing us to act faster to restore critical services/applications.
  • Sometimes we get flooded with emails due to false alerts and that can often be distracting to many of us.
  • Thanks to their add-on pricing scheme, it eliminates the need to buy expensive modules straightaway, thus saving money.
