"The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system.""The best feature is that it is very relatable, stable, and scalable. The logger is a part of the software, but it's not the most important point of it."

Cons
"I would like to be able to extend it to all of our data centers, whether they are in the cloud or not. It would be helpful if I could connect everywhere.""Open-source software is usually not user-friendly.""The installation and monitoring need improvement.""The pricing has recently risen. I know they've changed what is covered under the license, however, it doesn't change the way we use it and adds nothing to our experience, and yet we now have to pay more.""The scalability of Nagios XI is scalable. However, it is not easy to do.""It can be quite difficult to know which drivers and agents to use when setting up.""The way Nagios displays information isn't easy for a new user to understand. It's not intuitive enough. You need to read some tutorials or be trained to understand what it's displaying. Also, I think it needs more features to improve network visibility because there are some things you can't detect.""The technical support is variable - sometimes I get answers, but most of my tickets go unanswered."

More Nagios XI Cons →

"The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved.""They need to improve the dashboard interface."
