We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It supports numerous platforms.""Actionable insight is the most valuable feature.""DX allows you to customize and gives you a high degree of control."

More DX SaaS Pros →

"Zabbix is scalable.""We are able to monitor our virtual infrastructure, virtual machines, windows servers, databases, and the network using a simple network management protocol. We are able to pull almost all the metrics that we want, receive notifications, and have them integrate with telegrams for certain devices that are critical, such as UPSs.""The performance and bandwidth are valuable features.""Its overall flexibility is most valuable. When our customers have some custom applications that are not necessarily covered by the community or a standard monitoring tool, we use Zabbix to build our own modules with our own templates. This feature has been useful in using Zabbix for infrastructure and IT monitoring. It has also been useful for industrial equipment monitoring. Zabbix is very lightweight. It is efficient in terms of performance because it doesn't use a lot of resources.""There is less computing power needed for scaling.""The most valuable feature is the protocol to manage anything.""We have found that Zabbix is more easy to use than other applications.""We like the user-interface for this solution, which makes it an easy to use tool."

Cons
"DX SaaS is a latecomer to the APM market. Some things that are straightforward in Dynatrace are complicated in DX. For example, upgrading the agents is a seamless process in Dynatrace, but it's a pain in DX SaaS. You should be able to upgrade in the Application Command Center. However, it is not working correctly.""The ability to scale presents a challenge as the cost of handling vast amounts of data in the cloud must be taken into account.""Old user interface and dashboards could be improved."

More DX SaaS Cons →

"We had some scalability issues with a large number of nodes.""The GUI could be more intuitive. Also, we'd like streaming telemetry. Zabbix might have this feature, but I haven't seen it yet. It took us a long time to get started because the documentation isn't very descriptive. We had to go through various sources like YouTube and forums to get this solution working.""Its UI should be improved. They did some improvements in version 5, but it could benefit from some more work. Its integrations should also be improved. They've been active for one year, and they seem to have noticed that. It has new integrations, but it could benefit from more integrations. As far as I know, there is no model to push statistics, metrics, or events towards Zabbix. This type of API isn't yet there, whereas some other tools provide an API for this.""My company wanted to do an exercise command to access IT from Cameroon. They wanted to access an FSS to a second host with second equipment that was on another coast but it is not possible on Zabbix to do it. They want to directly access from the front-end of Zabbix to access a prompt in Zabbix to an access terminal. In the front-end, there is no way to do that. That would be an important improvement.""The product delivers false positives during reporting because of flapping. Other reasonably priced alternatives may have better performance.""Zabbix is not easy to configure, and upgrading is also an issue.""The solution needs to add remote features.""The graphical user interface could be customized a little bit more, and also the dashboard could be more friendly."

    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 →

    Overview

    Dx SaaS is a solution whose goal is to ensure that businesses and organizations can monitor and manage the way that users experience their applications. This solution contains many powerful tools that are designed to give administrators the maximum amount of control over the experiences that clients have when employing their applications. Organizations and businesses can rest easily and ensure that the product they put out into the world is always being watched for potential issues that will be resolved proactively and quietly.

    Dx SaaS Benefits

    Some of the benefits that come from using Dx SaaS include:

    • Improve the overall experience of your users at all stages of their journey. Dx SaaS provides administrators with the ability to cull proactive insights into not only the actual performance of the application, but also the way that users are experiencing the application. This makes it possible for administrators to address pain points before they can become major issues.
    • Full visibility across all aspects of the application. Dx SaaS enables organizations to see what is going on in every part of their applications. Every aspect of the application is fully visible to them. They can keep track of both users and their IT infrastructure without having to rely on other solutions.
    • Run Dx SaaS flexibly. Users can run Dx SaaS from their premises, investing in hardware and software, if they so wish. Alternatively, users can run Dx SaaS as a pure SaaS-based solution if that is a better fit for their needs.

    Dx SaaS Features

    When users choose to employ the DX SaaS solution, they gain access to many different capabilities. These features include:

    • Relationship mapping capabilities. Users can visually represent all of the parts of the application and their relationships. This can aid administrators in understanding precisely how their applications, architecture, and networks operate.
    • Customizable dashboards. Administrators can build dashboards that are most suited to meet their needs, fine-tuning them to perform the analysis and functions that are most relevant to their objectives.
    • Root-cause analytical capability. DX SaaS makes it possible for users to find the causes of any and all issues that arise. Its analytical capabilities scan for anomalies and find issues early on. This gives administrators and IT professionals insights that enable them to keep applications running optimally.
