"single system monitoring" were not the intended target of this poll. Even cacti and ntop are a stretch, when you compare them to the other products listed.

Monit does monitor remote services.

Thanks for the clarification. Perhaps next year we might have such a category if enough folks are interested?

Gkrellm

I wasn't going to vote in this one as I don't really use monitoring programs, but then someone mentioned gkrellm and I realised that I use it all the time.

But alas I still can't vote in this one because gkrellm isn't on the list

Gkrellm does monitor multiple systems. All they need to have is the gkrellm-server package installed and running.

While I use Cacti, I consider it to be more for historical analysis/trending rather than monitoring.

As to ipfraf, ntop, etc.... I think there needs to be clarification on what we mean by "monitoring". Seeing Nagios, GroundWork, Zenoss, etc. I assume that we're talking about systems that check the "health" of a particular host, service, etc. and take some action (email alert, open a ticket, etc.) based on given thresholds.

I like etherape, mostly for the pretty colours and it has ape in the name which makes me think of monkeys. Also like htop because it's useful, and I like conky on fluxbox. On Xfce I like the simple panel applet System Load Monitor. Mostly the gf does all the monitoring my life can handle.

Argus is missing - please add it to the list

http://argus.tcp4me.com/

Great piece of software capable of monitoring multiple systems. Simple and stable. Where stable is extremely important for a monitoring tool.

Regards,
Radu

Could be nice to add Pandora FMS to that list, an Opensource Project (under GPL2). It's a nice monitoring software, try it.

More information about Pandora on its website at http://pandora.sourceforge.net
