Data virtualization and resource monitoring by Foglight has contributed to improved production. It has large storage space that can store our workloads under safe place. I can highly recommend this product to any company that requires the best hybrid cloud services. Collaboration with our partners on development planning and data optimization process has been great with Foglight. It can instantly detect any issue and automatically report to our SQL server.

Strengths [Foglight]
  • Monitoring, Alerting and Management of on-prem virtualization and physical servers
  • Historical trending and baselining are excellent and being able to compare a problem period against the same sets of data for a period when there was no issue is especially helpful as part of troubleshooting.
  • Ease of use for end users is appreciated
Weaknesses [of Foglight]
  • Creation and management of custom monitors is a developer level activity requiring Groovy skillset
  • Less useful for management of an environment where there is a large amount of custom implementations
  • Commitment to longevity of cartridges/packs for specific subsystems
  • Ability to create custom schedules/alerts/escalations is only available via a 3rd party product (from a former Quest developer) and is not particularly easy to manage/manipulate
  • Lack of API accessibility for external integrations to other analytics (splunk, etc.)

Foglight NMS is great for up to about 1000 interfaces (a switch may have 48, a server may have 4), that's how they license the product. Being that the application and database are stored on the same server, the deployment costs are affordable. After about 1000 interfaces getting monitored, one may want to consider stepping up to a more robust product that offers higher availability/redundancy.

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.
