I received a mail to vote for Nagios, but in order to vote, i think criteria should be defined
and you must have experience with the other candidates. Unfortunately i am newbee
so I leave voting to the experts.
I have tried to setup Nagios and found it complex to configure it and setup the agents
(latest build), I know that I am inexperienced ;-)

Kind regards,

Frank

Thank you for bringing some light into this! I couldn't have put it better myself

buttons at the top of the thread.

op5 Monitor

I am not very satisfied with Nagios performance. What is Your opinion about op5 Monitor from Sweeden ? They are doing good work for Nagios.core . This is a much more mature product than Nagios XI with much better support. Does someone work on op5 Monitor ?

voting not obvious

I will second that it was not clear where this aforementioned poll was. I came here weeks ago and saw no automated way to "vote", so I just added a comment to the thread.

Linuxquestions may want to consider, for the future, on making voting more user friendly or obvious. Thanks for the great thread!

The directions in http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...7/#post4223031 seem fairly clear to me, but if you have any specific suggestions on how they can be improved let us know.

Hmmm. Yes I agree it looks that it would have been easy. I think maybe something technically was wrong then. For more than one of us, we did not see the actual poll with radio buttons for choices (I assume this is how it looked), when we came to this forum. Maybe we followed the wrong link and just saw the forum? Maybe because we were new users, something was wacky?

Thanks for the info.

PS: wow nagios kicked some butt!

I wonder how many people would use if it didn't have RPM and
DEBs ready. Or, the other way round: if it had a slack.tgz, would
I consider it again?

You need to be registered, logged in and have a least one post to vote. You should see the poll regardless though.

Don't know. But I do know that I've never used an OpenNMS RPM or DEB. Nor FBSD packge or port. I discovered OpenNMS some time back and it never occurred to me to even look. That's one of the nice things about "compile once, run anywhere", at least once you have your java environment set up.
