I currently use Nagios for monitoring and Orca for graphing, however I am
trying out a new Nagios plugin called NagiosGrapher that is supposed to
create graphs based on the data collected by Nagios. Check out
www.nagiosexchange.org for all the Nagios plugins you could ever want.

Subject: [rt-users] Net monitoring solution
I am looking for a net monitoring solution, to monitor some hosts load
averages, memory consumption, I/O perfomance, mails received etc.
Have some experience with rt, but not RTIR/RTFM (what are they? some
‘shells’ around RT or what?) So far I have installed nagios but alas - it
seems it doesn’t provide convenient graphs on ‘normal’ activity, it does
provide them on outages and failures…
I am a capable Perl/PHP engeneer, familiar with rrdtool. I think nagios +
n2rrd + rrdtool + rt(rtir?) is what I am looking for. Other options include
some SNMP daemon with cacti or oreon, again coupled with rt.
Unfortunately I am not familiar with SNMP, so I don’t know what direction to
dig at. Could anyone please share his experience on this matter? I think
that’s quite a common task to monitor hosts activity, to plot these graphs
and receive fault notifications.
Any help would be appreciated thankfully.
