What differentiates op5 Monitor from a standard Nagios installation?
A Nagios based turn key monitoring appliance
op5 Monitor is delivered as a “turn key” packaged product that consists of hundreds of modules and plug-ins, all verified, quality tested and supported. You as a user don’t have to keep track of all the different packages, their latest upgrades, patches or possible security issues. We take care of this for you as upgrades and updates are included in our support package.
An easy to use network monitor tool
op5 Monitor is designed with the user in mind. Hence we provide a modern and flexible PHP based interface that enables personalized views and settings and improves the presentation of customer specific data. This allows the user to decide on how the information should be displayed. It is also possible to build your own, customized widgets to be displayed in the tactical overview and to create new themes. On top of this, the Monitor also supports multiple languages.
Reporting and network data visualization
op5 Monitor has a reporting module which allows you to easily produce and schedule Service Level Agreement (SLA) reports and performance graphs which are valuable for decision making. The network visualization comes with Google Maps support. The user may visualize the infrastructure hierarchically, statically, or via geomaps. Using Google Maps API, you can draw a map containing objects with status information and links.
Web based configuration manager
We have developed a web based configuration manager for the op5 Monitor, enabling easy configuration of settings, hastening the setting up of new hosts and lowering the barriers in setting up an efficient network monitoring solution.
Support for clustered setups
We have created a new database back-end for better redundancy and load balancing. It comes with support for clustered setups and has improved scalability which makes the op5 Monitor suitable for large networks and monitoring environments.
op5 Monitor comes with smart search, an improved functionality for searching, sorting and filtering large volumes of data in no time.
Professional support and documentation
As a customer you get unlimited support for the full solution via phone, email or directly through our online ticket handling system. We have a flexible subscription based pricing that lets you “pay as you grow” and which includes a guaranteed functionality for your specific Nagios solution and environment.
Services and training
Along with our partners, op5 delivers several value adding services related to network monitoring and management as well as training courses.
No previous work is wasted
If you have spent a lot of time and resources on developing customized modules and checks, these can be migrated to op5 Monitor along with your other existing data and configurations. Contact us for further analysis of your situation.
