What is your monitoring application of choice?

I use several and all for different purposes.

I like nagios, mrtg, cacti, iptraf, darkstat. Id say the best(my fav) for overall server monitoring would be nagios. Its customizable, covers a lot of ground, can generate email/text alerts.

I like the graphs that cacti and mrtg provide.
I like the real time data that iptraf and darkstat provide

I like this poll - it gives me the opportunity to check out some mon. apps that I haven't heard of before

Shock, Horror! Gkrellm shunned again :(

archtoad6 01-10-2009 08:48 AM

I see mon has been added.

I may be showing my ignorance, but does Gkrellm not qualify?

jeremy 01-10-2009 10:59 AM

Gkrellm does not qualify. The issue was discussed last year in depth. Gkrellm is just too far outside the intended scope of "Monitoring" for this poll.

I must have missed that discussion. Before commenting further, can you clarify the 'intended scope'?

You are missing smokeping

The poll name will be updated to Network Monitoring Application of the Year starting next year.

Ah ok.

I agree with sycamorex , it has showed me a few other options.
One quick question. Are all of these tools free ? A fast check leads me to guess, if not the whole applicaiton atleast a part of it is free ?

I use Gkrellm.

Simple light weight and dependable.

I use Hobbit, recently renamed to xymon because "hobbit" is registered to by some hobbit'ses out there..
Very simple to create custom monitoring tasks, quick and easy to setup.

http://hobbitmon.sourceforge.net/

It comes pre-packaged for debian/ubuntu
