Nagios core does a great job for me, including third party plugins and managed through NConf webgui. I can monitor Linux, MacOSX and Windows hosts.

It's posts like the last few single-post-user votes for Nagios XI that make you wonder if there should be a minimum posting limit before voting is allowed.

Obviously something going on here. It isn't even subtle! But I suppose it gets people in the door.

^ I have noticed that some users who don't post much or at all during the year, come out for the polls and say their piece(s). like the one from post #18: been here for 5 years, and their 3rd (!) post is to vote for nagios. Checking user history .... surprise, the 2 other posts were also votes for nagios! that's weird, and borderline spamming.
there's at least 3 more in this thread who seem to be suspiciously nagios-centric in their LQ contributions:
jkohlbeck
ludmilmm
swilkerson
one of them even says "I'm prod to be part of the Nagios support team" - interesting...

Does etherape qualify as a network monitor? It's what I use.

RE: ondoho worring about low post users

I've been a UNIX user and admin since the 1990's.
I've check LQ occasionally every year but never felt the need to 'sign up'.
I have way too many memberships at all the various vendors already.
I signed up only because I would like to vote on the "Network Monitoring Application of the Year" poll.
I've used many corporate products and many FOSS solutions. I started with Big Brother a very long time ago.
I've tested (in a corporate network) GroundWork Monitor, Icinga, monit, Nagios, NagiosXI, OpenNMS, Shinken, Zabbix, and others.
Because I have posted here before doesn't mean I am without a worthwhile perspective.
However I do understand you concern about possible ballot stuffing.
That is an issue for ALL polls, and other types of voting.

Favorite monitoring tool

For many years Nagios Core was my favorite monitoring tool. After meet check_MK I think check_MK is a little better.
