May I say that when we were looking at going from a free network monitoring solution (Nagios) to a paid one (yours), there was some trepidation about picking the right one. The support you have provided during this setup phase has made it well worth the money spent on your product. I have no doubt we made the right decision in buying IPHost Monitor. Knowing that I have someone to contact for help makes this so much easier - especially considering what I had to do to fix problems with Nagios. Thank you for a wonderful product, and for the wonderful support you have provided.
Great product - we are glad that we retired our old real-time monitoring engine since it was complex; we needed to have our engine interface with major alarm software manufacturers to be able to send alarm dispatchers alarm signals on network failure events, moreover, we incorporated a telephony API to the our old monitoring engine to make calls to people on network failures, I can still write custom code to do these things with IPHost, but it is good to see the real-time event monitoring handled by another component so I can stay focusses on custom programming.
