We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"There are AI features in Moogsoft. Moogsoft has one wonderful feature that allows you to convert multiple alarms into situations. Generally, all other MoM tools get the alarms, and then convert it into an incident directly. There is one extra layer they have added before converting any alarm into an incident. Suppose there are multiple alarms that are somehow all related to a single source of issue. It converts all the alarms into a single situation, which then gets converted into an incident.""Moogsoft's most valuable features are event management, correlation, and observability.""The AI component allows you to check previous cases and diagnose problems easily.""The Event Management feature is quite valuable.""I like the prediction features."

"The performance and bandwidth are valuable features.""They've already added extra features, such as noise-canceling and facial recognition, which is great.""The solution is open-source, easy to manage, and user-friendly making it easy for anyone to use.""It meets my organizational needs. It's pretty easy to use.""Zabbix is very easy to implement.""There are lots of great features and functionality within the solution.""The solution is quite mature and very stable.""There is a problems page that shows us every warning or problem that occurs on our VMs globally. The map screen is also really useful because this is something that was missing. I don't know every other tool in the market. So, I don't know if this is a good point of only Zabbix, or other tools are also doing it, but from my point of view, this is the most useful page that I use, along with the problems page that efficiently lists the problem, recovery time, ending hours, starting hours, and so on."

Cons
"I would like to see how Moogsoft integrates with the multi-cloud and brings out a single pane of glass, to see everything on one screen.""They are very much dependent on open-source technologies like RabbitMQ message bus. They are using open-source databases, Apache Tomcat, NGINX. If we face any issues with Apache Tomcat or the RabbitMQ message bus, then we do not get support from them. We have to troubleshoot it ourselves.""Moogsoft is dependent on external products to do orchestration and SOP-based functionality.""They should consider including Chatbot.""I would like to see additional reports or information on the dashboard that includes metrics about CPU usage and memory."

More Moogsoft Cons →

"When we have a problem, we have to do a lot of research to solve it.""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.""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.""The user interface could be a bit better. They could update it a bit.""There's a small module of APM, however, it is not an enhanced version. People usually ask for a full-fledged APM solution.""Zabbix isn't very good at automation just yet.""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 APM monitoring has room for improvement, although I hear that the new 5.2 version has some improvements in that area, and I'd like to give that a go. I would like to see a few more templates out there for different styles of monitoring. I use the Grafana interface for reporting. I would also like it to have an out-of-the-box ability to email reports. You can create reports, but to be able to email those reports would be really helpful. I've got users who are not interested in logging in and generating a report. They want it all pre-canned and sent to an email address. It would also be really handy if we could pin certain reports up onto platforms such as Teams or SharePoint. A GUI for the proxy server would be cool to have for debugging purposes and for the support teams to have a look at, but I don't know whether that's really feasible to do. I get enough from the log files themselves."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "When compared to other solutions, it is quite good."
  • "Moogsoft's licensing is consumption-based, so the price may increase depending on the environment."
  • More Moogsoft Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable."
  • "Zabbix is free but if you use it in production then you have to pay for it."
  • "My manager is very happy because it doesn't cost anything."
  • "This is an open-source solution that can be used free of charge."
  • "We were searching for an open source solution and Zabbix fit the bill because it is free and open source under the GPL license."
  • "The solution is free. However, many open-sourced tools start out free but eventually start charging."
  • "Its licensing is fair. It seems to be much cheaper than others."
  • "It is open source. If you want to have a subscription or official support, you can pay for it. They have different plans, which are not that expensive. The plans are based on per monitoring server, not per monitored equipment. So, it is not at all expensive, and you can also live without the support if you want a cheaper option."

    Overview

    Moogsoft is an AI-based solution that ensures continuous availability and prevents downtime by utilizing machine learning and advanced correlation on your organization’s stack. Moogsoft detects incidents before they can escalate, notifies the proper response teams, and applies machine learning in order to understand patterns to help prevent similar issues in the future.

    Moogsoft sits on top of an organization’s production stack and extends across automation, service management, log indexing, and notification tools. Algorithmic Noise Reduction automatically reduces event volumes to unique alerts without relying on rules, filters, or models. This enables teams to analyze all monitoring ecosystem events with no noise and no blind spots.

    With Moogsoft extensive integration options, users can aggregate all their observable data into a single location and create automated workflows to detect and remediate incidents in third-party systems, ensuring their system remains unharmed. Moogsoft’s anomaly detection tools detect incidents as they emerge, allowing security teams to respond swiftly before they impact customers.

    Teams can easily set up their own integrations using Moogsoft’s REST API and webhook. The solution provides guidance for each step, allowing users to import data from whatever tool they need with just a few mouse clicks.

    Some of Moogsoft’s top features and benefits include:

    • Alert noise reduction: By automatically applying statistical calculations and noise-reduction technologies to its alert data, Moogsoft eliminates unnecessary noise. This makes it easier to spot anomalies and alert only for important warnings.

    • Correlation: The Moogsoft correlation methods analyze alerts to identify common ground across incidents and events. With Moogsoft’s sophisticated visualization tools, users can view patterns by location, source, or service.

    • Anomaly detection: Moogsoft is designed to automatically reduce data, helping make anomalies more visible to security teams. Together with Moogsoft’s correlation abilities, it is simple to detect the probable root cause of issues that arise.

    • Custom integrations: Integrating with Moogsoft is seamless. Moogsoft’s REST API and webhooks allow developers to easily retrieve and update data and launch events. Integrations enable full visibility to ensure that apps and services are continuously running.

    • Collaboration: Moogsoft provides easy integration options with existing collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams, PagerDuty, or Slack, allowing team members to gain visibility into the big picture of any incident that arises. No matter what their defined role in the organization is, everyone on the DevOps team can immediately step in when needed.

    • Data enrichment: Multidomain enrichment data added as context with ingested alerts provide teams with important information on incidents, such as location, department, business relationships, and escalation processes. All data is imported from configuration database management systems, asset management databases, and discovery systems.

    • User-friendly interface: Moogsoft’s intuitive interface provides users with full step-by-step support. This includes videos and tutorials for all user levels.
