Bandwidth, Network and Servers Monitoring tools with Installation Tutorials

Nagios is a host and service monitor designed to inform you of network problems before your clients, end-users or managers do. It has been designed to run under the Linux operating system, but works fine under most *NIX variants as well. The monitoring daemon runs intermittent checks on hosts and services you specify using external “plugins” which return status information to Nagios. When problems are encountered, the daemon can send notifications out to administrative contacts in a variety of different ways (email, instant message, SMS, etc.). Current status information, historical logs, and reports can all be accessed via a web browser.

Installation and Configuration

  1. Nice article, its supprising how many networks dont have network monitoring. There are so many free tools out there to do it.

    Network monitoring has got me out of so many sticky situations.

    I have installed nagios on my network and put the windows client on all off my servers. Its supprising how many times services become unavliable and then avliable before we notice. Its helped me so many times by fixing things itself before i notice.
