Hi,

Cacti would be a good tool to start with. We've been using it since 2007 to monitor 4000++ elements and it keeps showing a stable performance. Spine poller works just great.

Nagios is also a good solution that works very well in conjunction with Cacti.

How about checking the thread where you posted this same question before, and received answers???

Hasn't changed much since last year. Neither have the results from Google on "linux system monitoring tools"
