Hi there,

I miss Wireshark (formerly Ethereal) in the list of candidates.

Wireshark is not relevant in this particular category, but is in the Network Security category.

that feels strange for me - because I consider Wireshark a diagnostic and monitoring tool, kind of "network debugger", the networker's Swiss Army Knife. In the Security section, I would expect products that help improve the security of a system. Firewalls, encryption, antivirus, access control. Things like that. Not a research tool. .oO(?)

Hi,

Recently switched from Nagios to Icinga. Love what they do.

Kind regards,

Eric

If you like Icinga, then you would love Nagios XI. We looked at Icinga too, until we found Nagios XI. They are pretty much the same thing, except XI was built by the creators of Nagios, Icinga is just a knock off.

Not voting on this one, because I've only used Nagios and Zenoss. First time I've heard of many of the others. Both monit and Icinga look intriguing. (May be time to roll out a couple prototypes.)

Very open-ended category - this could really mean anything.

Is this supposed to monitoring "over" the network, or monitoring "of" the network?
If the latter, then vnstat, iptables, tcpdump, iptraf, netstat, telnet/nc etc.

Otherwise, nagios/munin - although these are these don't necessarily need to be used for monitoring "of" or "over" the network, depends on the plugins - I guess that applies to everything though.

I think these days there is much overlap between all the categories. I wonder if anyone can find an application that can quite comfortably fit into each of the categories :-)

So many solutions built on Nagios, you might as well go to the source and get Nagios XI
