The Dude and network monitoring
I have been looking around for a free (important) network monitoring software, I have tried a few different ones including The Dude, Total Network Monitor, PRTG and The Dude is the closest that came to doing what I wanted, but unfortunately it kept crashing the PC it was loaded onto. It would be fine while I was using it, but in the morning when I came in the PC would need to be restarted as it had crashed, once I had un-installed The Dude it was fine.
So my questions are has anyone else had this issue with The Dude?
And can anyone recommend a good free Network Monitoring software?
I have looked at Nagios, but I am not that experienced with Linux and it sounds like it will take a lot of work initially to get up and running? I have also looked at Shinken, but I just could not get it installed and working (probably having a dumb moment).
