Monitoring Application of the Year
 
A new poll this year.

iptraf!
 
I'm a total no-know on monitoring whatever, but I think linux's default iptraf is still an awesome general purpose ethernet monitoring tool - try to get that for free on Windows, ha!. I think there's just a shortage (at some places) of quality basic functionality tools for basic operations. Well, good luck wit your poll.

cacti missed: http://cacti.net

blassmegod 01-02-2008 12:20 PM

From Terminal/shell: iptraf for the network and for system resources/network Saidar.
With GUI: Cacti.

vermaden 01-02-2008 12:52 PM

Also ntop is missed: http://www.ntop.org/overview.html

Where's mon? http://mon.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Main_Page

Yalla-One 01-03-2008 06:02 PM

monit
 
Any hope of adding monit?
http://www.tildeslash.com/monit/
(the vote wouldn't be complete without it!)

Where's Gkrellm? :(

edit: Maybe if I add the url ** http://members.dslextreme.com/users/...m/gkrellm.html **

It's worth a try.

I am asking for Gkrellm, too

anticapitalista 01-04-2008 01:02 PM

What about conky?

jjthomas 01-05-2008 10:04 PM

Another request for Gkrellm:scratch:

ganglia should be an option.

I'd like to vote for Hobbit -> http://hobbitmon.sourceforge.net/

It's the open-source child of BigBrother.

SCerovec 01-09-2008 12:14 PM

I even don't go out of bed without Gkrellm anymore.
I even installed one on my toilet mirror so i can monitor rpms of my shaving machine :D
Gkrellm is missing!
And iftop
and iptraf
and what was this poll about?

carpo_tk 01-15-2008 09:27 AM

collectd?
 
...and I would like to see collectd listed (http://ipv4.collectd.org/), because for the small network I have, ntop + collectd rocks!

As for single system monitoring - I really like gkrellm.

jeremy 01-15-2008 10:12 AM

"single system monitoring" were not the intended target of this poll. Even cacti and ntop are a stretch, when you compare them to the other products listed.

+1 request for Gkrellm

unSpawn 01-15-2008 12:12 PM

Monit does monitor remote services.

Thanks for the clarification. Perhaps next year we might have such a category if enough folks are interested?

gregtrounson 01-16-2008 06:27 PM

Gkrellm
 
I wasn't going to vote in this one as I don't really use monitoring programs, but then someone mentioned gkrellm and I realised that I use it all the time.

But alas I still can't vote in this one because gkrellm isn't on the list :)

Gkrellm does monitor multiple systems. All they need to have is the gkrellm-server package installed and running.

While I use Cacti, I consider it to be more for historical analysis/trending rather than monitoring.

As to ipfraf, ntop, etc.... I think there needs to be clarification on what we mean by "monitoring". Seeing Nagios, GroundWork, Zenoss, etc. I assume that we're talking about systems that check the "health" of a particular host, service, etc. and take some action (email alert, open a ticket, etc.) based on given thresholds.

Takla 02-01-2008 05:47 AM

I like etherape, mostly for the pretty colours and it has ape in the name which makes me think of monkeys. Also like htop because it's useful, and I like conky on fluxbox. On Xfce I like the simple panel applet System Load Monitor. Mostly the gf does all the monitoring my life can handle.

radu 02-15-2008 08:12 AM

Argus is missing - please add it to the list
 
http://argus.tcp4me.com/

Great piece of software capable of monitoring multiple systems. Simple and stable. Where stable is extremely important for a monitoring tool.

Regards,
Radu

Could be nice to add Pandora FMS to that list, an Opensource Project (under GPL2). It's a nice monitoring software, try it.

More information about Pandora on its website at http://pandora.sourceforge.net
