Pros and Cons

  • Database monitoring
  • Database management suite
  • Customization (both monitors and dashboards)
  • GUI interface is difficult to navigate
  • No APM capabilities. They left this space about a year ago
  • We have had issues with the GUI response times. On a regular basis, the interface can take several minutes to refresh

Pros and Cons

  • Foglight NMS is very light on resources given the amount of monitoring connectivity options it provides. It is one of the few that I've trialed in the past that offers SNMP v3 connections.
  • The dashboard is concise with the main areas of interest. It can be customized as well if you have a particular use case.
  • Setting up alerts is straightforward with the ability to set custom thresholds. Alert emails get sent by configuring a primary mail server with the option to add a backup mail server in the event of a primary mail server outage or connectivity issues.
  • While the Linux agents mostly work out of the box with the remote node receiving the push, some newer Linux distributions may require some tweaking of the agent install script due to upstream software package changes.
  • The canned reports are adequate for high-level overviews but I would like to be able to further customize them to include specific information from the monitored nodes.
  • I wish there was an application to migrate the Foglight NMS application and database (which reside on the same server) to a new server or VM. They make you open a support case to accomplish that for which you need an active maintenance contract.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
