Server monitoring

Hi guys,

What do you use to monitor your servers?
care to share?

Do you outsource to other providers or do you have your own NOC/System to monitor your servers?

Info appreciated.

Best regards,

Syed.

I'm planning to combine nagios with cacti. Nagios for local monitoring, Cacti for network. Works well when I was a intern in a company.

I have previously utilized NetIQ QCheck and Chariot for network diagnostic purposes, predominantly for VoIP and public wireless access deployment.

These applications charge an exorbitant fee for its licensing, and it is definitely not recommended unless you are going to utilize it for a purpose that's profitable enough to cover the procurement cost.

The applications, however, aren't branded under NetIQ anymore and have since been pushed out via Ixia Communications. They are still used for simulating load conditions, and aren't normally used for regular 24x7 monitoring.

Ic, NetIQ is used in the banking industry (nocs) .. they are more on corporate level for really important servers there goes the price.. I've used NetIQ before for 24x7 monitoring but I don't think it is Qcheck or chariot, i'll check what it is and post another reply...

I have a custom made script running on the servers that monitor one another, and server monitoring by NOC.

If you want to use opensource that is really great, you can try to use nagios... http://nagios.org

What good with this is FREE and it runs in linux which is also free. Though a bit hard to setup / understand if you don't have experience in linux due to there are many configs/settings you need to tweak if based on your monitoring needs.

Thanks!
