Event monitoring & notification

I want to monitor certain system events and upon detecting some error, dial a list of phone numbers and play a message. I would prefer that it continue dialing until the call is acknowledged, but this functionality it not necessary. I can handle the event monitoring & detection, but what would be the best way to do the dial up notification part? I would prefer free or low cost solutions.

Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

There are a lot of monitoring solutions out there, free and open source, that provide what you need. Have a look at Icinga for example. At WikiPedia you can find a comparison table which lists a lot more possible solutions.

Kind regards,
