Overall Satisfaction with Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring

[Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring] is used across the entire organization for web site monitoring, DNS record monitoring and AWS resource alerting and monitoring of event thresholds. Our business needs require application stack real time monitoring as well as APM insight to performance , Site24x7 [All-in-One Monitoring] allows us to schedule maintenance while keeping uptime stats for alerts, this is especially important to reporting, so your uptimes are not skewed for maintenance reasons.

Manage engine had OPs manager for alerting and security monitoring alerts, but is just not as robust an offering as [Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring] (RUM.APM features etc..). Originally we had used Nagios on low, to no-cost linux platform, but Nagios will require license also, as well as a physical hardware device or two.
Alos have tested/tried PRTG for single pane of glass, but did not provide as much for the cost as [Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring] at end of testing trials.

Would you buy Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring again?

Yes

I have tried other tools (PRTG etc) in the past, and switched from US monitor to [Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring], for all the built-in features and ability to implement by using with or without the agents deployed (ip discovery LAN). This is one tool that encompasses the entire organization and allows that single pane of glass feel (NOC screen view) for an accurate virtual snapshot of your entire organization, either cloud and/or LAN.
