Flexible, helpful support, and the API makes integration easy
Pros and Cons
  • "The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system."
  • "The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved."

What is our primary use case?

We use this product for our network monitoring solution.

What is most valuable?

The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system.

What needs improvement?

The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved. For example, the dashboards are easily customizable to a certain degree, but not as well as a product like Tableau. From the visual aspect, it could look a bit fancier. Functionality-wise, this product is missing the NetFlow monitor.

For how long have I used the solution?

Our organization has been using OP5 for more than ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is definitely a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

OP5 is scalable.

How are customer service and support?

We have been in contact with technical support and found them to be helpful.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used various monitoring products but at the moment, OP5 is our main one.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is pretty straightforward and there are some templates that you need to apply. It's not for somebody who is inexperienced, but if you have some IT knowledge then you can get up to speed quickly. Basically, we just need two parameters to set it up, and then it's up to you to decide what you want to monitor.

What other advice do I have?

I like the flexibility, as it is based on Nagios. It is more tailored towards network monitoring and I can recommend it. There are some visual aspects and the NetFlow that are missing, but otherwise, I'm completely fine with it. Especially with the API, where I can use the data with many other systems, it's great. OP5 is meeting my purpose, but the UI is not suitable for management, who are looking for something fancy. Also considering the NetFlow functionality is missing, it loses a couple of marks. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Good support and scalable, but the dashboard interface needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

Our customers are using the OP5 solution for monitoring. Our customers are using log management, but it's not the only part of the software that they are using. They are using all the features, and log management is one of the features of the software.  

We are working with its latest version.

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

They need to improve the dashboard interface.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for more than eight years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable.

How are customer service and support?

It is very good. I would rate them a five out of five.

How was the initial setup?

It is easy. We have one engineer for its deployment and maintenance.

What other advice do I have?

My advice will be to buy it if it is the correct software for you.

I would rate it a seven out of ten.
