    Nagios XI is a powerful server and network monitoring solution. The automation monitoring provides the continuous feedback about the product and infrastructure which help in enhancing the product quality. The advance user interface help in analysis and administration.

    Pros

    Nagios XI provide a complete monitoring solution for any kind of server, application, web-service or network. User interface is easy to understand and simple to customize the layout or design for each user's priority. Nagios XI monitoring host fetch the quick data from nodes and GUI interact the data into the useful information. Configuration wizards simplify the setup process for new nodes monitoring. Integrated nodes trigger the notification if it needs to increase the capacity of the system. Configuration snapshot helps in saving the day in case of new check-in messed it up and you need a immediate rollback to the last working stage.

    Cons

    Schedule Reports are limited to enterprise but in case of Standard edition we need to setup the jobs to generate the schedule reports. Advance reporting should have some bulk server options. Monitoring of sensitive data like certificate expiry should have some simple wizards as configuring the web-service and then monitoring the certificate is a long process such need to be simplified.

    The "horse and buggy" of monitoring

    Nagios XI is like a horse and buggy: you use it when you'd like a taste of what the old world used to be like. Does it work? Yes, in the same way that a horse and buggy will get you wherever you'd like to go. But if you want to get somewhere in an efficient manner, and you don't want to deal with the tool taking a huge crap every once in a while, use a more modern, metric-based system like Prometheus.

    Pros

    People love Nagios because it "just works" with its check scripts, and Nagios XI adds an actually usable UX on top of that basic experience. It includes a small number of "wizards" that can help set up common monitoring configurations.

    Cons

    The Nagios monitoring agents aren't commercially supported, so good luck getting any features changed on those. You need to handle assembling a collection of test scripts, distributing them, and installing their dependencies on all managed nodes. The Nagios model, which mainly focuses on "mutable" infrastructure versus "immutable" infrastructure (Docker containers) is outdated in today's world.

    Nagios XI was easy to setup (from the tools we tested), although it has many plugins you can always and easily create your own plugin (anything that is measurable), it has good alerting system when it comes to emails, seems like the GUI/UX could have been more modern but overall experience is very good.

    Pros

    I really liked the easy setup and the fact that it's a one stop solution with the amount of available plugins

    Cons

    For certain configuration you need to read the manual doesn't seem to be trivial titles. Also the wizards have good defaults but there should be an easier way for customization
