Binary package “xymon” in ubuntu maverick
monitoring system for systems, networks and applications
Xymon (previously called Hobbit) is a network- and applications-
monitoring system designed for use in large-scale networks. But it will
also work just fine on a small network with just a few nodes. It is
low-overhead and high-performance, with an easy to use web front-end.
It handles monitoring of network services, and through client packages
it can also be used to monitor server- specific items. Alerts can
trigger when monitoring detects a problem, resulting in e-mails or
calls to your pager or mobile phone.
Xymon has a great deal of inspiration from the non-free Big Brother
package, but does not include any Big Brother code.
