Help you with what?? You're going to have to make the decision as to what works best for you. There's no way anyone here can tell you that.

And, you don't say What 'difficulties' you had, or What you've done/tried.

what OS are the servers running?

if they are RPM based take a look at spacewalk.

wow fedora 10 is way way old and out of support for years. Fedora is on release 19 with 20 going into public beta in a few months.

if your servers are also running a RedHat line then def. look into SpaceWalk...

Again, NO ONE HERE can tell you what's best FOR YOU. You've been asking about monitoring since April, and the answers haven't really changed since then. You have MANY options that a brief Google search can lead you to, and Nagios and Zabbix are the two most popular. They are popular because they are easy to use, flexible, and support MANY types of systems, including Windows.

AGAIN...if you tried to look things up, you'd find answers. Nagios has a plugin site that has THOUSANDS of plugins to monitor pretty much anything. Load a current release of Linux, install Nagios, and LEARN how to use it.

Ok...so if you know Nagios 'deeply', what SPECIFIC problems are you having with it??

Post a SPECIFIC question, like "I'm running Nagios on CentOS 6.4, and getting message xxxx when trying to monitor more than 30 hosts via SNMP".

And do NOT hijack someone elses thread..open your own thread for your own question.

There are definitely a number of different options. As the thread has already clearly mentioned, Nagios is one of the most popular options. If you're looking for open source, HypericHQ (VMWare’s solution for monitoring and managing physical, virtual, and cloud server environments), Groundwork (the free version is fully featured but is limited to monitoring 50 servers), and Zenoss (doesn’t require Linux server expertise are also worth considering). I work with a company that made a blog post on this topic and looks at each of these options a bit more deeply and provides links to their respective sites. http://www.futurehosting.com/blog/op...-your-options/

We are using Nagios internally in the Organisation to monitor the network, and setting alerts and all. There are about 20+ servers allocated, and we are managing through Nagios well. The only shortcoming of Nagios is that the service/host restart is not real time in Nagios, but this can be handled if there are no real-time deadlines involved.
I did try Zabbix, but the UI framework of Nagios makes it very easy to use the monitoring tool over Windows as well.
