Question OS monitoring program

I'm looking for some advice on a software package. I have a SUN V880 server running Solaris 8. I am looking for a software package to purchase that will monitor the system and send alerts if certain levels are reached or exceeded, weather it be disk space level, processor usage levels, etc. What we really want to measure is mostly at the OS level, not so much at a database level.

Any suggestions?

Wow, there are a lot of those!

Nagios (freeware ???)
Tivoli (IBM $$$)
OpenView (HP $$$)

just to name a few. If you are a cheapskate (like most of us), then go to and see whats available for free. Save some $chi-ching$

If it was up to me I would buy the HP Openview to do the monitoring but the bean counters here have other plans. So I checked out the Nagios. Looks like a pretty useful app. Looks like it will do just about everything that we are looking for. A lot to configure though, I guess I'll get started.

</Thanks> <---- humor like this keeps me sane!!!
