[CentOS] Somewhat OT:

Sorry for the top post.

Nagios can start very simple, but has the ability to end up very complex.

It's configs take a modular approach, you have monitors, monitors belong in groups, groups have operators/administrators, etc.

My big problem with nagios is when I used it last it didn't keep monitor history which makes trending impossible.

I eventually went with ipmonitor from solarwinds which has a nice web interface, all the reporting you may want and works pretty much like nagios does, but through a web interface. Very reasonable pricing too.

Of course I believe it only runs on windows, but it runs very nicely as a VM guest.

Yes, you're roght Kai, I don't know how I could write such a stupid
subject, but it was too late yersterday, and I was writing with a
little part of my brain working :)

Even so, thanks for your comments, I'd like more experiences about
monitoring systems. Again of topic, I want to avoid Nagios because it
looks like over complex but if someone has an actual experience
demostrating the opposite, I'd be glad to hear.

Thanks in advance
