Solution Pricing, Renewals, and Support

To obtain pricing for one (or more) of our Custom Foglight Cartridges, you can contact us directly at, or work with your Quest Sales Representative. All Solutions are presently sold as a cartridge which is installed, and configured along with Services.

Pricing Determination Factors

  1. The product type and Tier
  2. The Quantity of Foglight Management Servers upon which you are planning to install the solution*
  3. The number of years support desired, and any additional hours purchased
  4. The Quantity of Custom solutions purchased

NOTE: For customers who are interested in multiple products or have a large implementation of Foglight Management Servers, our "All you can eat" (AYCE) program will help you save on support cost by freezing your price level regardless of the number of additional products you purchase. Ask us for more details!!!

PSO Support cost calculation is based on groupings of Foglight Management Servers (FMS). This practice, established in 2016, continue so long as the agreement is sold as bundled services hours but could change subject to productization. Initial pricing is based on 1-5 FMS's, and each additional group of 5 FMS's added after initial deployment constitutes a pricing bracket increase. Prices are subject to change without notification, but generally remain consistent for a period of 5 years for existing customers.

All custom cartridge installation and support is covered for the first year with each purchase, unless a shorter duration key is installed during a POC.

  • Customers will be contacted for renewal separately from Foglight Licensing - This is not part of your license agreement
  • Renewals can be purchased for 1 to 5 years in duration
  • Cartridges will time out and cease to function after the term of the agreement, if not renewed
  • Lapses in agreements may be resolved by issuance of payment that is retroactive to the end of the previous period

The annual renewal qualifies the customer for the following:

  1. Continuation of product functionality through the covered period purchased
  2. Ability to log a ticket with Quest Support under your primary contract for issues believed to be related to a cartridge
  3. Up to 8 hours of support annually for qualified issues, unless additional hours are purchased

Additional notes:

The terms outlined in each Statement of Work will define the maximum number PSO Support hours allocated. Products will be considered "in service" immediately upon cartridge installation, and the PSO Support agreement will remain in effect through the number of years purchased.

PSO Support hours are available specifically to assist with technical problems with the performance of the Custom Cartridge, and not for troubleshooting Foglight Core issues that may arise. The existence of a PSO Support agreement qualifies the client for upgrades, patches, and fixes at no additional cost for the duration of the agreement. PSO Support must be renewed annually to qualify for continuation of these benefits. If a customer has used all their PSO Support hours before the end of the period, LightSpeed PM resources will contact the customer to acquire a PO for additional costs as needed for additional support beyond the initial purchase.

In the event of perceived issue with the Foglight Custom Cartridge, the client will first contact Quest Support via either telephone or the online support page:

The client will provide the Site ID and a description of the failure condition being experienced, and the Quest Support team will provide a best effort approach to determining the cause of the problem.

  • Quest Support may follow documented steps to disable the Custom Cartridge to isolate the root cause of the problem, and may at their choosing disable the cartridge for a period long enough to determine whether the reported conditions are either related or unrelated to operation of this Cartridge.
  • The Custom Cartridge may or may not be re-enabled during the troubleshooting process, depending upon its relevance or potential impact to the troubleshooting efforts in progress.

After isolation, the quest will do one of the following

  • If it is believed that the Custom Cartridge is unrelated to the condition being experienced, the Quest Support team will work to resolve the issue and then re-enable all custom Cartridges before closing the ticket.
  • If it is believed that the condition reported is related to a specific custom Cartridge after having followed standard troubleshooting procedures, Quest Support will then escalate the issue to Quest PSO for resolution.

The PSO team will respond within 48 hours of escalation, and will take the necessary steps to restore the Custom Cartridge to its original configuration, as it existed at the end of the most recent consulting engagement related to the Custom Cartridge.

  • Any changes to the configuration which may have been made by the client after implementation will be overwritten. PSO will not be responsible to resolve issues that result from client actions to relocate or reinstall the Cartridge to other management servers, databases, storage, or network segments than where it was originally implemented.

The PSO hours are allocated as a maximum amount of support for the cartridges under an annual term (unless additional hours are purchased). Activities that are out of scope for “Annual Consulting Services” (or PSO Support) hours after implementation is  completed, are as follows:

  • Any post implementation customization and/or configuration
  • Product use training or knowledge transfer
  • Relocation or upgrade due to changes in infrastructure
