Great for enterprise deployments where there is a single standard of devices and monitoring practices in place. Managed Service Providers have a harder time deploying the solution across multiple customers due to constantly changing customer requirements, device types and monitoring and security requirements and scenarios.

ScienceLogic - Enterprise Considerations

Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Regardless of the product or solution, all monitoring systems encourage coding. ScienceLogic enables those coding skills to be leveraged across an ever growing list of technologies if one codes inside the Science Logic platform. Coding monitoring solutions outside of the ScienceLogic platform will tend to collect more technical debt and decay faster than it otherwise would if the code is embedded inside the ScienceLogic platform. For large, enterprise use cases, ScienceLogic (alone) is not as appropriate (6-digit volumes). Here, their integration with ServiceNow turns that gap into a benefit.

Outside of the reporting complexities, I don't have any areas that I would say are less appropriate for ScienceLogic SL1. I think that enhancing the ticketing mechanism to a more robust ITSM standard. As is now, the adoption of an enterprise-scale will be hard to do. I think it's close. Most users would use an integrated tool rather than an external tool such as ServiceNow.

Fantastic Modular Monitoring Solution with Great Enterprise Level Support

ScienceLogic SL1 is a great solution if you're interested in a solution like Nagios that has a lot of features out of the box but is constantly being improved upon with additional technologies being supported on an ongoing basis. You get the support of an enterprise company that usually exceeds that of an open source solution. However, due to the cost of the tool, smaller/less complex environments might be better suited to an open source tool.

Know what you are looking to achieve organizationally. This platform can take you many places so make sure you know where you want to go. Start small and simple. You can always expand into the more complex areas once you better understand the underpinnings of your business.

Likelihood to Recommend

We have found ScienceLogic SL1 well suited to both MSP and Enterprise monitoring at scale and where a high degree of integration with other systems or customization of monitoring approaches is required. It might, however, be overkill for smaller enterprises where the requirements are more straightforward.

As an enterprise monitoring and alerting tool, ScienceLogic SL1 is an all-in-one solution that can be extended for any need in the company. It is extremely extensible as long as you have trained developer staff who know SL1, Python, and SQL, but is still very usable out of the box. Like most modern IT companies they want to move to a subscription model that needs to be evaluated to verify it is the best model for your organization.

Deployment makes it easier for us. Our industry requires constant movement with adds and removes. ScienceLogic SL1, compared to previous products, makes it easier. Deployment is less appropriate in a large Windows environment.

ScienceLogic SL1 is well suited for performing latency checks across MLPS links and alerting when necessary. The ability to add python-driven dynamic applications gives us the flexibility to track these things and be able to give our customers the best network possible.

This product may be well suited for a telco or large company where they simply use exiting power packs. Developing your own power packs for custom application monitoring is not an enjoyable experience.

An answer as to whether this is the right system for you greatly depends on several factors:
1) Your budget
2) Governance in your organization
3) Whether you are willing to invest in education

If your budget is below the leader's quadrat, but you are looking for a versatile infra management tool with AI built-in and have a limited time to deploy, my suggestion would be to consider SL1. Do bear in mind that investing in the user and admin training is essential.

Likelihood to Recommend

SL1 is well suited for monitoring small to large scale networks of devices. It is also well suited at handling multi-tenants within one SL1 product through the breakout of organizations. The issue with the organizations is that it needs to be more granular in some cases. Downstream suppression being one area where multi-tenants have to make a sacrifice and choose one option or the other. Some polling cycles could benefit from having organization standards instead of global standards.

Likelihood to Recommend

ScienceLogic SL1 is well suited for the more standard monitoring environment. SL1 will be well suited due to being able to write once and apply to many. This can save us much implementation time.
It's less appropriate for the more complicated and less standard (customized) environment, each monitoring target will require different customized environment. It will need to customize in SL1 and cost us lots of monitoring implementation schedule.

SL1 allows you to monitor more, with less noise.

Likelihood to Recommend

SL1 is very good at having your services mapped out to enable root cause in the event of an incident.
It's able to cover a large amount of devices so in essence it provides broad coverage and it's extensible as well, however it's not doesn't necessarily goes as deep as some purpose built tools. This may not be a bad thing as it allows them to focus more on the functionality as opposed to the nuance of every single device, but where it then makes up for this is to be able to ingest other data sources and still give you IT/Business service visibility.

For out of the box server monitoring as well as layer 3 alerting for networking, ScienceLogic SL1 is not entirely suited to this discipline yet. It is, however, easy enough to make dynamic packs and collect information needed once the OIDs are imported and you have a few capable developers.

New concept of monitoring

Likelihood to Recommend

SL1 is well suited for all standard monitoring and discovery. Data collector high availability and scalability by using collector unit group is a good point. But using message collectors could be less appropriate for a huge number of devices to monitor. Recommended sizing for message collector is about 200 devices/message collector appliances.
