Pros: In my career I've used several products to monitor my networks. Most of them were paid services. Then I heard about Nagios XI and decided to give it a try. I had a server running Ubuntu flavor of Linux, so that was my platform for deployment. It really took me several tries to get it up and running. While the instructions are very easy to follow, I kept on running into certain issues with my Ubuntu server, halting my Nagios installation. After some thorough research and troubleshooting I was able to get Nagios up and running. The results were really above my expectations. Having a network, spread out across multiple offices in different countries, it was always a challenge to monitor uptime of my infrastructure. With Nagios I was able to structure everything by location / level, resulting in a nice looking visual map displayed on a large screen monitor. I can't speak enough about all the benefits of this product, such as email notifications, monitoring of internal resources of my servers, etc. Provided I spent $0 on this project, the result was really astonishing. It also helped me and my department to have a better idea of my overall network health at any given moment.

Cons: As I used a free version of the product, I can only judge so much. Learning the structure of the Nagios backend server, including config files took some time. But once I was comfortable with that, everything else was very simple. You do need to have a good grasp of Linux administration to get this product up and running.

Overall: A great free alternative (in my case) to similar not free products, that allowed me to get a real time monitoring of my network

Pros: It allows you to monitor many network devices, such as switches, routers, servers, helping to monitor network performance and track traffic on the network interface. very easy to install on a server, the interface is very intuitive, and has a variety of customization options since Nagios is an open source software which makes it easy to add custom scripts to extend the available services.

Cons: It is a bit difficult to configure, but once configured works very well, it continues to use add-ons that in some cases work perfectly but others are painful to work, the interface is a bit slow when you have many clients on the network, and the Search is very precise and does not look for possible matches.

It has proven to be a great business solution for monitoring and alerting critical problems.

Pros: We introduced Nagios XI into our network a few years ago to help monitor network performance as well as for usage alerts. It has been a great tool to keep track of just about everything such as network interface traffic, volume sizes and service and process alerts. The web interface is pretty snappy and easy to get around in. The product just does it's job. We were considering Solarwinds NPM at the same time but glad we choose Nagios instead.

Cons: You need to a know a little Linux and it's a little complicated at first to set up more advanced alerting. However, with a little time, you can become a pro.

Overall: Consistent alerting of network outages and potential server and application problems.

Pros: I really like the graphical user interface overlay on top of Nagios Core, it makes it so much easier to create monitors.

Cons: The only complaint I have with Nagios XI is not with the software but instead with the way that people do not take ownership for the monitors that they create. The software works great when done right.

Overall: The best benefit is the ability to create a monitor in a GUI rather than a command line.

is easy for use, i use it every day in my work for monitoring a big network with a 1000 users.

Pros: we used nagios in some analysis tests of monitoring managers, we really liked its adaptability to monitoring of various cellular telecommunications networks. The management of statistics was very simple.

Cons: The only problem we encountered was licensing costs and support within Venezuela, specifically placing it below its competitors, but I believe that in a country without restrictions it can be an option.

Overall: For small telecommunications companies it is very good, it allows to monitor networks simultaneously and control the statistics very well

Pros: The email functionality is very great! admins can immediately find down the device and the best thing is host recovery and down bird eye view.

Cons: Sometimes but a bit when you turn off the system and again turn on the database crashes and can cause nagios unstable.

Comments: Nagios XI has the most flexibility on the market in an enterprise monitoring application. I have tried them all, and finally settled on Nagios XI to give my organization the ability to customize what is monitored and alerted on down to the most minute detail

Pros: Extreme flexibility Low cost Perpetual license

Cons: You need to tell it what you want monitored and how, however this actually is a pro for us.
