I’m using NetSaint now to monitor my network and some friend / client machines – pretty good system. Still have to update to Nagios and install the temperature sensor that I purchased from a local company. Should be pretty neat when I’m finished.
Need to get the MySQL monitoring portion complete – still have problems getting that module to compile.
Monitoring Network Services with NetSaint. Like many people, you might not pay as much attention to your car’s fuel gauge as you should. You might only notice the gauge when the gas tank is nearly empty. Some new cars, though, have a nice feature: a dashboard indicator light that reads “Low Fuel” when there is about an eighth of a tank left. This strategy is much better than, say, the “Oil” light; by the time that light comes on, the car is already in trouble. [Linux Magazine]
