Overall Satisfaction with Nagios Core

Yes, our organization uses Nagios [Core] to monitor all infrastructure and it works finely in a diverse environment. It has very good documentation from implementation to monitoring and web interface, as well as a very good easy-to-navigate icon. The host and service can be organized to manage the host and client easily.
  • Network analysis
  • Effective data collection
  • Easy implementation
  • Web UI should be better while navigating
  • Improve security
  • Need to extend support and availability
  • Network analysis
  • Open source
  • Calculated data
  • Open source is helpful.
  • We have better managed downtime due to calculated data.
  • No negative impacts.
  • SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (npm)
Because we get all we required in Nagios [Core] and for npm, we have to do lots of configuration as it is not as easy as Comair to Nagios [Core]. On npm UI, there is lots of data, so we are not able to track exact data for analysis, which is why we use Nagios [Core].
