You missed out OSSIM: (Snort, Ntop, OpenVAS, P0f, Pads, Arpwatch, OSSEC, Osiris, Nagios and OCS rolled into one).
OSSIM, the Open Source SIEM
OSSIM, the Open Source SIEM
Which, if you're thinking of an all-in-one setup, is pretty handy because it handles intrusion detection and auditing too.

Spooky........ I was just re-configuring The Dude on an old laptop.....
Bonus points for any that can report status back to a server via http proxy....
For completeness have you had a look at cacti?
For long term network monitoring and base-lining I don't think it can be beat! Its also much kinder on resources than the larger solutions like spiceworks which really hammer the server its running on!
Do not run the monitor solution on your virtual platform. How will it be able to alert you to a problem with the virtual infrastructure if it's running on it!
One thing I'd say - if you want to use Nagios, take a look at NConf. Web based setup for it, makes life very easy!
I am torn between MRTG and Cacti for monitoring network traffic per port on my switches. I prefer to use Nagios3 for everything else, when combined with NRPE. so I can monitor internal systems processes on windows servers as well as external services. I get alerts when things are down and warnings in advance of failure for most things. I am also able to monitor printers and get advance warnings of low toner and drum problems so I can ensure that I have parts in stock. Nagios is abit tricky to configure but its easily worth it. I have used the historical record it provides to illustrate to SLT that there is a need to replace hardware. There is also alot of free plugins for nagios. I especially like the "Check_Procurve_loop" plugin so that I can quickly and easily locate network loops when the students decide to swap network cables around... The other bit of software not mentioned so far is "Smokeping" which gives really nice latency graphs between the server and any other device. I use this to monitor the quality of the schools internet connection as well as the performance of the internal LAN.
I apologise in advance if this is very thick of me, but I am struggling to find the download link??? Can anybody assist? Thanks.
This was very thick of me, just read the title of this feed again and realised this isn't anything specific, I can see download links in other fellow edugeeker's comments.I apologise in advance if this is very thick of me, but I am struggling to find the download link??? Can anybody assist? Thanks.
