Foglight is used by our IT and Lit Support departments to manage in-house internal software, applications, documents review and production platforms, and hosted applications/files as well. It is used to monitor performance across all systems and platforms such that issues are easily prevented or combatted and do not lead to interruptions in productivity, particularly in the areas of document review, coding, and production.
  • Integration with platforms
  • Uniformity
  • Pinpointing of issues
  • There are not many problems with this product
  • Limited ability to use Foglight itself to solve problems it identifies
Foglight is particularly helpful when you have multiple platforms, software solutions, or applications running across a variety of networks. It allows users to pinpoint potential problems across these fields and combat them to minimize disruption to the technology itself. The alerts are generally almost instantaneous which allows swift responses and low business interruption.

Foglight is being used in our company to help our IS department to monitor our applications and infrastructure. It helps us to address from End User issues, application, vmware and database. It also help us to quickly be notified through integration with xMatters on important issues happening in our environment.
  • VMWare Monitoring
  • Custom use of scripts and dashboard
  • Performance Analysis for Database
  • Remote Monitoring for Linux and Windows.
  • A common complaint I hear from our users is that it has a confusing UI.
  • For End User monitoring it requires a good time troubleshooting "network issues", creating the right filters and make sure you are receiving the right information which sometimes is not straight forward to figure out.
  • Had issues in the past for Foglight firing false alarms monitoring Weblogic Application Servers, it required a lot of customization to adjust those metrics. Although those are no longer a issue with their latest release of the cartridge for application servers.
Foglight brought us a great value monitoring our Linux vmWare environment, very easy to use and implement and valuable script customization to integrate with our notification tool.
