Faced with an increasing number of deployed Linux servers and no budget for commercial monitoring tools, our company looked into open-source solutions for gathering performance and security information from our Unix environment.
Building Linux Monitoring Portals with Open Source

Sure, it’s a tough question with lots of different answers but, it’s still a valid question. There are lots of Open Source monitoring tools available for the Linux platform, Nagios, Big Sister, OpenNMS to name just a few. Each has its pros and cons, features and functionality, plus combining them into custom setups like this is always a choice.
But, which of them offers the most features and fucntionality? Which is the most complete of them all? Which is the best or at least the best starting platform for building a custom system? Mangement systems like this are often difficult or at least very time consuming to setup. This makes it impractical for an individual to install and test them all, in order to determine what’s best for their needs.
I am looking for a web based system monitoring tool, and I came across this
company : uptime software. Anyone have experience with this ?
they have some big clients and were recently mentioned as an alternative to
expensive tools like HP Openview, IBM Director etc. in this article:
