Pros
"What I like about eG Enterprise is that it's easy to use. It's a simple product. You can get up to seventy-five to eighty percent of the required information based on real user experience and diagnostics.""The algorithm is the most valuable aspect of the solution.""Sometimes when we face issues with the new technologies or very old technologies where we cannot enhance the service, they move to work with us directly and start doing some development on this area which is very good for us.""Some of the best features of eG are, in terms of APM, they have complete modules between application performance monitoring, server monitoring, and even storage and network-based monitoring. The UI is also quite good. They have some standard AI-based capabilities, even though it's not quite as advanced when compared to Dynatrace. eG has some good, basic APM capabilities."

"PRTG is simple to manage. First, you can create a template for a device, then apply it to hundreds of similar devices. That's a great advantage.""What I've found most valuable is the custom sensor, which allows you to write scripts or code to monitor a specific metric in your environment.""The most valuable features of PRTG Network Monitor are bandwidth utilization, user-friendliness, all past report simple retrievals, and timeout features. Additionally, if the solution does go down it is simple to bring it back.""The most valuable feature of PRTG Network Monitor is the dashboards. We can check to see the resources and the uptime.""PRTG is integrated on Windows.""The solution is easy to manage and the reports are very accurate.""Technical support has been very helpful so far.""The most valuable feature of this solution is being able to see things graphically."

Cons
"eG Enterprise's licensing could be cheaper. Even compared to Dynatrace, I think the price is quite expensive considering the APM functionalities, even though they have other benefits such as info monitoring.""The solution needs to enhance the management dashboards.""In terms of areas for improvement in eG Enterprise, we are now moving most of our services to the OpenShift platform, and we need a way to monitor even containerized services or any service deployed on OpenShift, but that feature is still not available in eG Enterprise, so it's not good enough for us.""In terms of sales or market perspective, they must invest in Latin America with professionals with a more marked presence."

More eG Enterprise Cons →

"If PRTG could help me see the bandwidth for each host I have on my network, either for a wireless or a wired network, that would be very helpful.""PRTG Network Monitor can improve by adding prevention and detection features.""PRTG Network Monitor can improve the reports. In the reports, you have to give an alert for that SMS and email, the emergency calls and downtimes have to be reported accordingly. You have to enable email services or an SMS gateway service to receive more alerts at the proper time.""Their penetration within the market could be much better. If their pricing was lower, even though it's reasonable now, it might help them achieve this.""In the next release, PRTG Network Monitor should add a backup solution.""There's always room for improvement. The high availability feature is good, but it's an area that PRTG could marginally improve. For example, in PRTG, both servers have a different IP, but it would make things a lot easier if they were bound by a single IP.""The solution could be better and faster when it comes to performance.""The free version only gives us 100 free sensors to use. It would be nice if there was double that."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We paid about 300,000 Saudi Riyal for the solution and it was quite affordable compared to the competition."
  • "There are two licensing options: Perpetual and SaaS-based. The main offering, in terms of what eG prefers to offer, is the subscription-based rather than the Perpetual License. The price could be cheaper."
  • "It is approximately $100 per agent on a monthly basis."
  • "The cost for eG Enterprise is almost $100,000 for one hundred and fifty services. It's subscription-based and the payment is yearly."

  • "All monitoring system is close to the same pricing scheme."
  • "The price is pretty comparable."
  • "The pricing is okay and it is cheaper than some competing products."
  • "We are using the basic PRTG that we can download for free. For now, we only need to monitor less than 100 devices. For more than 100 devices, we would need to buy a license. PRTG is much cheaper than SolarWinds."
