We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Fewer vulnerabilities have been observed in the four years we have used the solution.""Mobile application is the most valuable feature for us. We can monitor all the storages on our phones. It's really good.""The best thing about this solution is that you can check for the infrastructure and system updates that you might need to be compliant with the Cloud.""Has really nice roll-up dashboards.""The tool for forecasting capacity is valuable."

"Zabbix helps to save time.""It has improved our server performance monitoring overall. We know right away when there are problems. It has built-in statistics, so we can go back and see if there's spiking. We can check what's happening every day around the same time and check the configuration to see if there's something that's running and needs to be fixed.""I really enjoy network traffic triggers that allow us to check traffic threshold from ISP.""The pricing of the product is reasonable.""It has good graphs of what is going on within the operating system.​""We use Zabbix to monitor our organization's IT infrastructure and workstations. We don't use Microsoft Intune since it's expensive. The tool's real-time alerting system has proved crucial for us, particularly when a new device joins a network that is not one of our own devices. It notifies us about the presence of this new device, allowing us to investigate further. Additionally, it alerts us about disk usage, memory usage, and the software installed on the machine.""It can send messages to our ticketing system.""Zabbix is quite stable once it is set up. We haven't had any post-setup issues."

More Zabbix Pros →

"In terms of improvement, they should enhance the product range.""Doesn't do well in terms of integrating with technologies other than Dell.""The reporting capabilities of this solution could be improved.""Supporting legacy systems is an area that can be improved.""PowerScale is the only file system offered and that is limiting."

More Dell CloudIQ Cons →

"Zabbix isn't very good at automation just yet.""I am having difficulties connecting it to Grafana, as well as some of the other plugins like Kibana.""There are not too much documentation or manuals. We found the tutorials very easy to understand but do not go deep enough in the use of Zabbix. We need more manuals, proper use, documentation, etc.""Outside of the normal standard monitoring, I would like to extend patching, importing patching, and supporting patching for Windows Servers.""The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have.""The reports are not great and should be improved.""The product could be more secure and more stable.""There is a bit of a learning curve during installation."

    I have researched a quite a few network monitoring tools which can be used for various monitoring purposes of not only the servers, but the intermediate routers as well. There are majorly three types of these softwares. Ones which are completely open-source, you can do almost anything you want using these, but they require quite some expertise before you can use them. Then there are the ones that are not open source, the enterprise softwares and cost you some money, but on the other hand, they are extremely easy to set-up and learn. You can have them up and running in a matter of minutes. And then there are those which are completely cloud based. They can be free of cost or charge some money depending on the software. The good thing about these is that you don’t have to install any extra software, and it can be managed completely online but then again these have limited features and you cannot exploit them to the full extent as you can do with the open-source and to some extent the enterprise software, so I won’t suggest you to use these, because these are generally not the complete solutions and require other support software to achieve the same. Below I have listed the outstanding pros and cons of the various Network analyzers that you can look into Nagios Pros: Nagios offers an extensive set of collector plug-ins that allows users to gather performance and availability data from a broad range of operating systems, including  Windows and Netware Nagios… Read more →
