for a long time i've been using KS-Soft's Hostmonitor (http://www.ks-soft.com/hostmon.eng
) to monitor my network. The program is great, but it works only on Windoze...
I searched the net for something similar for linux, but sadly for now i cant' find alternative. I know cacti, and i'm using it. It does a great job for examining network load, environment changes (temperatures, humidity, etc.), but it's not a realtime sollution. I run the poller every minute, but with Hostmonitor i have critical test (backbone trunks, etc.), that run every second, and alerts with popup windows, sound, etc.
Can any software on linux do that? Even non-opensource one?
The test i use are two types - icmp ping and snmp checks (with formulas applied to the results). I like the tree-type structure, that Hostmonitor uses, and that it's not a web sollution.
Any help with finding such software will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
