Smartmon System Monitoring
Smartmon is a Web-based, system and network monitoring solution. It provides a highly scalable, customisable and easy
High Level Status View
to maintain system with a small footprint for monitoring the real-time availability of network devices, servers (Windows, Unix, Linux and others) and all network delivered services in any IT infrastructure. Smartmon displays your system and network status on a color-coded Web page that proactively notifies you of problems immediately via e-mail or text message (SMS). Smartmon is built for System & Network administrators tasked with managing the availability and performance of tens, hundreds or thousands of servers and network devices on a limited budget. Smartmon also provides monitoring views suitable for publishing to non-IT users and management. Smartmon enables you to monitor any server, any device, on any network within minutes.
Smartmon uses Linux and Nagios under the covers. The Linux component, whilst you can find it if you look, is hidden from view via a browser based interface.
Nagios is a host and service monitor designed to inform you of network problems before your clients, end-users or managers do. The monitoring process runs regular checks on hosts and services you specify using external "plugins" which return status information to Nagios. When problems are encountered, Nagios can send notifications out to administrative contacts in a variety of different ways (email and SMS). Current status information, historical logs, performance graphs and reports can all be accessed via a web browser.
Once you have implemented the Smartmon monitoring system, you'll realise just how much more aware of your IT environment you have become.
