Great for monitoring servers, databases, storage, network devices, and log file monitoring
Pros and Cons
  • "We can also observe whatever we want, and there are no limitations."
  • "We do not get performance reports properly."

What is our primary use case?

We use OP5 Monitor to monitor servers, databases, storage, filers, storage devices, network devices, and log file monitoring.

What is most valuable?

Its open-source environment is accessible to everyone. We use plugins and scripts to monitor and can use customized scripts. We can also observe whatever we want, and there are no limitations. We can monitor whatever we want.

What needs improvement?

There are some lag time and connectivity issues. It is not an OP5 Monitor issue but due to some network issues. We do not get performance reports properly, which needs improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for almost three years. We are using version 8.3.2, and it is a client on-premises environment migrating to GCP and Google Cloud.

Find out what your peers are saying about ITRS, Nagios, Zabbix and others in Network Monitoring Software. Updated: January 2023.
672,785 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable, and there are a lot of applications using OP5 Monitor. For each application, there are 40 to 50 servers and 40 applications in total. So there are around 1600 servers. So about eight servers are monitoring, and we have about 40 application users using OP5 to monitor their servers, their clusters, their network devices and storage waste.

How are customer service and support?

We usually contact ITRS support, and OP5 Monitor is owned and managed by ITRS. We have a customer ITRS support portal, and we can search for ITRS support on Google. We can create a new ticket and ask them about queries if we need any new monitoring enabled or if we need to upgrade the OP5 Monitor. They respond within a few minutes. I rate the support an eight out of ten.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Positive

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was medium. It was not easy, nor was it difficult. You can take any server, install it, and download the OP5 from Google. It takes around 20 to 30 minutes for the main installation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is not a free solution, but our client agreed with ITRS that they would use OP5 Monitor, so they have kept using it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We chose this solution because we did not pay for it. Our client insisted we use this solution only because it is their business, and they paid for it.

What other advice do I have?

I rate the solution an eight out of ten. Regarding advice, the graphic user interface is much better than Nagios. So if someone knows the basics of Nagios, they can use OP5 Monitor efficiently if there are any difficulties.

Good support and scalable, but the dashboard interface needs improvement

  • "They need to improve the dashboard interface."

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.
