Overall Satisfaction with ScienceLogic SL1

The ScienceLogic SL1 platform is used throughout our entire organization, from simple predictive hardware failure, such as a failed drive, leveraging the built-in the manufacturer's drive monitoring capabilities, to providing more complex, topology views of our virtualization platform and status of their components. It is also the driver of our real-time alerting of issues and is integrated with our ticket creation process.
  • Provides real-time device availability alerting
  • Provides dynamic topology views of devices
  • Provides the parent-child relationships with those topology views
  • Can be noisy because of the large number of simultaneous alerts.
  • The UI (classical) is not always intuitive.
  • Reduces the number of employees needed to monitor several thousand devices.
  • Easy to extend the product to create new monitoring solutions.
  • Single platform for monitoring all types of device classes.
Yes - Nagios
Because we moved to a single platform, this gave our end-users a uniform experience for the monitoring of our internal and customer devices, Allowing us to have a uniform set of learning criteria for training Support Services employees that use the SL1 product.
Currently, we are in the process of reviewing this.

CA Unicenter; this was a long time ago, but ScienceLogic SL1 was far ahead even going back many years.
The ScienceLogic SL1 platform is a framework, that is extensible, which makes it possible to monitor just about anything. If it does not have an already have an existing PowerPack, you can create your own. However log file monitoring and processing, within SL1, is challenging.
