We performed a comparison between Nagios XI and ScienceLogic based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Network Monitoring Software solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The most valuable features of Nagios XI are you can customize it based on your use case and requirements. It is flexible and easy to integrate with our systems. You can customize the solution by adding additional features using code."
"I can monitor a phone on a desk to very big servers of any company."
"Nagios is a custom API manager, and we can expose custom APIs for our integration. This is a great feature."
"The solution is pretty stable."
"Nagios allows us to configure any device so that we can send pager alerts when people don't have access to emails. It also allows us to schedule downtime and maintenance."
"I can monitor a software made in-house to software of bigger companies."
"It's a monitoring agent. It's designed to do one thing. Its most valuable feature is its monitoring."
"The installation is no problem. I've installed Nagios several times."
"When it comes to features, the power pack is the most valuable."
"The best feature is the highly flexible graphs."
"Provides agentless monitoring so there's no need to install the agent on each server."
"It is simple."
"The power flow is great."
"The most valuable features of ScienceLogic are AI and machine learning."
"It has good monitoring capabilities across cloud environments, data centers, and hybrid environments."
"I'm satisfied with ScienceLogicfor for what they can offer today because they can offer both serverless connectivity and agent connectivity."
"Open-source software is usually not user-friendly."
"The technical support is variable - sometimes I get answers, but most of my tickets go unanswered."
"It is really difficult to integrate Nagios XI with another system to generate logs and alert our management of failures in security infrastructure."
"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."
"We often need to develop custom plugins to get Nagios to work the way we want it to work because the features we need are not always available in Nagios."
"The scalability of Nagios XI is scalable. However, it is not easy to do."
"The reporting structure could be more streamlined."
"We'd like to see more integration capabilities."
"They need a little more self-service."
"ScienceLogic could improve the implementation, it could be made easier."
"ScienceLogic does not have application monitoring. We definitely need something integrated within ScienceLogic to monitor applications so that we don't have to rely on monitoring tools to monitor other applications. At least the ones that are market leaders, such as SAP, Oracle, and others."
"It was challenging onboarding users."
"We want to understand: how does the back end work? What if some problem occurs? What we can do? They need to provide more information."
"From a performance perspective, it needs to improve a lot."
"There are often bugs in new releases."
Nagios XI provides monitoring of all mission-critical infrastructure components, including applications, services, operating systems, network protocols, systems metrics, and network infrastructure. Third-party add-ons provide tools for monitoring virtually all in-house and external applications, services, and systems.
