server monitoring software
hey all, just wondering what some of you use to monitor your servers. I have several Win2k3 servers with the Dell Open Manage software and it's ok but I'd like to try others out there. Preferably free/open source. Any advise is appreciated.

Nagios, fiddly to set up but beautiful to watch.

Nagios for me too... http://www.edugeek.net/wiki/index.php/Nagios
I will be writing another guide when I get the time - Nagios configured with NagiosQL and using Nagvis for visualisation (think pictures of your server racks with little ticks to show they are working).

I use Spiceworks and am having a look at 'The Dude'.
Since it's written by a good friend, I suppose I should try a shameless plug for FreeNATS - FreeNATS: Free Network Automatic Testing System

Groundworks here due to the ez config with the webadmin but going to look at nagioql as well now.

thanks for the replies fellas . does Nagios have an x86 installer or can a linux box be setup to monitor my Win2k3 servers?

nagios can monitor just about anything.

Servers Alive, installs on windows no probs at all.
Can monitor alot more than just the basic server, connected to a suitable mobile it can even txt you when something really bad happens.
Can take along time to configure if you have alot of things to moitor, but well worth it.
