Overall Satisfaction with Nagios XI

Nagios XI is being used as a network, server, and database monitoring tool in the Information Technology Department. SMTP settings are available and whenever the server will be down, it will generate an email and inform the server administrator.
  • Network monitoring.
  • Database monitoring.
  • Windows Server monitoring.
  • Cluster Service monitoring.
  • Graphical user interface must be enhanced.
  • More monitoring agents must be included.
  • Minimize downtime.
  • Improved RTO.
  • Improved RPO.
Cost efficiency is the main reason which we opted [for] Nagios as we were previously using IDERA tool with comprehensive database monitoring solutions, but the slow performance we are getting while monitoring the instance of the database.

Yes

Would you buy Nagios XI again?

Nagios is best suited in an large organization where it is production 24/7, but in SME (small/medium enterprise) you have to pay a lot to the administrator. Instead use some graphical and easy to use tool like IDERA.
