Cons
"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."

More Nagios XI Cons →

"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 is open source."
  • "Licensing costs are reasonable."
  • "It is good to contact experts for advice about what is the best solution for your specific infrastructure and enterprise."
  • More Nagios XI Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The solution is license-based. It's between $8 and $15, depending on what you need from the product."
  • "I'm not the best person to discuss pricing, but what I do know is that it's a use-and-go structure. You use this much storage and pay this much for it. That's how it is. Every time, we continue to add a large amount of data to the environment."
  • "The license of ScienceLogic is based on how many endpoints are used. The number of monitoring points you want to have."
