We performed a comparison between eG Enterprise and Zabbix based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two IT Infrastructure Monitoring solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"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."
"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."
"The algorithm is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"The best thing about Zabbix is the integration and the APIs that are included are very fast"
"The initial setup was very quick. The first time it was long because I didn't know it yet. I was only using Windows. The first time was very difficult because of the operating system."
"The most valuable feature is the monitoring of virtual machines."
"There are lots of great features and functionality within the solution."
"The most valuable feature is network traffic monitoring."
"There is less computing power needed for scaling."
"The solution is quite mature and very stable."
"The most valuable feature is service assurance."
"The solution needs to enhance the management dashboards."
"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."
"In terms of sales or market perspective, they must invest in Latin America with professionals with a more marked presence."
"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."
"Its UI needs to be improved a little bit more so that an end-user is also able to handle it. I can handle it, but others should also be able to handle it in a better way. It becomes complex when we are growing and need to add proxies. We need more scalability features and documentation for different use cases. A lot of articles are available, but they need to be in proper documentation. For example, when you have thousands of servers that have to be monitored in different regions of the world, there should be some kind of documentation to describe how you can create proxies and add them. Sometimes, when you are using the database, it can get overloaded. When the network is growing, the number of transactions becomes very high, and the database gets overloaded. There should be information about how to reduce the load on the MySQL database, which is what Zabbix is using. The market is growing a lot, and it should be enhanced for a lot more things. We are currently bringing enhancements at our end for different use cases. For example, when dockerization is going on, how can we check the logs inside the Dockers. We should also be able to monitor and check the number of logins and add features such as SSO login and two-factor authentication as a protocol. These are the security features and concerns that we have to deal with. Currently, we are developing modules to add features to Zabbix, but they should also work on these features."
"Zabbix isn't very good at automation just yet."
"In an upcoming release, there should be automated reports which we are currently doing manually. For example, if we collect a report file every day and want to send it to a moderator for review. We are expecting this feature to come out soon but it would be valuable to have now."
"The System Center Operations Manager can be improved."
"We would like to monitor other touchpoints such as ATM machines. It would be great if it can provide monitoring of ATM machines. Compatibility with other products would also be great."
"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."
eG Enterprise is a comprehensive performance monitoring tool that monitors applications, infrastructure, and networks. eG Enterprise offers a complete performance management solution that delivers diagnosis and automated IT auditing, and offers extensive reporting to test application latencies, storage hotspots, network failures, server incompetencies, bottlenecks, user experience (UX) concerns, and more.
eG Enterprise monitors an organization’s total IT ecosystem and applications throughout every layer and all tiers and will take a deep dive to discover where a problem began, faster than any other solution. eG Enterprise is a complete solution that thoroughly monitors the end-user relationship for just about every IT deployment available, such as cloud-based microservices applications, enterprise applications, on-premise monolithic applications, and digital workspaces.
eG Enterprise is a flexible solution and can be deployed in various circumstances, wherever the digital experience of the user needs to be managed and IT infrastructures and applications need to be monitored. eG Enterprise is effective from legacy on-premise deployments to the most cloud-centric ecosystem in the marketplace today.

“The product makes data collection easy. It's simple to set up. The algorithm is the most valuable aspect of the solution. In a few minutes after the installations, we can get insights from my technical environment. After a few minutes, I can get some valuable insights to make decisions.” - Anderson L., LatAm Presales Analyst at CLM

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by Zabbix users.
PeerSpot user Shibu B., Regional Manager/ Service Delivery at ASPL Info Services, says, "The solution is quite mature and very stable. The monitoring capabilities of the product are excellent.” He also adds, “The solution is very easy to scale and the product is open-source, meaning there aren't any licensing costs associated with it.”
Julian L., Senior Specialist Critical Infrastructure at an educational organization, comments that the solution is “A complete solution that doesn't cost anything, does what I need it to do, and has easy-to-use templates and very good scalability.” He also mentions “The agents are pretty cool. They're easy to roll out. The standard out-of-the-box templates are also pretty easy to use. The integration with other learning products is also good.”
Faycal N., CEO/Founder at Zen Networks, praises the product, mentioning, “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."
