Customer Support

Comments: Pros: the technical support is eager to assist. Certain things should be figured out before I can start monitoring them. The support person was assisting me in understanding the task I had to solve, in choosing better approach, even in writing scripts for my particular needs.

Cons: looks like product is evolving quicker than its manuals. Some areas aren't well documented. More supported languages could be fine to have as well, sometimes I need reports in languages other than English.

Overall: the program is getting stabler in course of years. Looks like developers do take into account some of their customers' feature requests, that's fine. Well worth its price.

Comments: Pros: During last few years there were many updates for the product. New features, improvements, that kind of things. New major version is definitely more useful.

Cons: Documentation is still not too detailed. Certain areas are just obvious, point an click. Advanced monitors might take much time to understand all details.

Overall: we have started to use it instead of free software we used previously. It was too much maintenance with those scripts, especially after upgrades. After trying several commercial alternatives, we finally selected IPHost. Good customer service, too.
