Pros
"It is the best monitoring tool for Oracle databases.""The product gives us as much control as we can have by providing a complete picture of the whole set of Oracle products.""The 13cR2 updates to the OEM family, strongly integrate Cloud (off-site, hybrid and on-premise) services providing a seamless way to see all of your resources regardless of where they are deployed.""I like that it's stable.""There are a number of different user interfaces you can choose from.""It's a useful feature to be able to see the top SQL, the number of executions, the CPU, and the resources that it's using.""This solution allows us to quickly drill down when there are issues.""The most valuable features are security and speed."

"It is a great product. The SNMP protocol tracking feature is good. I really like how it tracks SNMP. The alerts are also great.""The most valuable feature is the monitoring of virtual machines.""The solution is quite mature and very stable.""The integration capabilities and APIs are the best part.""During my testing, the features that I like the most are that it can be integrated with my system, and it provides me with reports of all of my servers.""The most valuable feature is the alert and alarm monitoring.""The most valuable feature is network traffic monitoring.""We have found that Zabbix is more easy to use than other applications."

Cons
"There's a lot of documentation to go through as a new user.""The product is pretty comprehensive, but quite resource hungry. This might be due to the majority of the application seemingly being written in Java.""The solution is considered expensive.""Reporting and statistical charting is largely still left up the end-user to develop custom solutions.""The solution has a very large resource system. It's too big. There are too many items.""Better mobile access would be useful.""We would like to have a single dashboard for monitoring and controlling all of our products.""In my experience, the monitoring could be improved."

"When using this solution in enterprise monitoring, you are able to see that there are some issues with equipment that could be causing a problem. Sometimes you want to make a root command that you do not want to be executed automatically. What we have tried to do is open an SSH session directly from the solution's interface but it is not possible.""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.""If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.""When we have a problem, we have to do a lot of research to solve it.""I think the reporting part of Zabbix can be improved in terms of more user-friendly graphics to display the collected data. Many simple users who don't know how to use Zabbix properly might get confused by the reporting, although at the same time it is very versatile for my company.""I would like to see a more flexible mobile client, and better HA out of the box.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Based upon 3 days of implementation by a single person, plus licensing costs would be approximately $60,000, including the virtualized hosts."
  • "We are satisfied with the pricing."
  • "There are a few bugs with the software which require opening SRs with Oracle Support which contribute to the day-to-day cost. Perhaps 8 hours per month is spent dealing with support, just as a rough guess."
  • "There is only the standard licensing fee. There are no other costs."
  • "Evaluate your requirements carefully. Elaborate DR and HA setup of OEM can become expensive."
  • "Be careful to only enable the packs for which you have a license as this is an issue we see time and again."
  • "The solution is inexpensive to purchase."
  • "It's expensive."

  • "This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable."

  • "My manager is very happy because it doesn't cost anything."
  • "This is an open-source solution that can be used free of charge."

    Overview

    As an IT operations professional, your job is more critical than ever because cloud operations are now a fact of life. For example, you must address the concerns of corporate compliance auditors one minute, and the next minute, deal with end users who signed up for cloud services without consulting you first. So, what are you to do?

    Not to worry! Oracle provides a single solution for managing both situations. Oracle Enterprise Manager provides a “single pane of glass” that allows you to manage on-premises and cloud-based IT using the same familiar interface you know and use on-premises every day.
