  • Server Monitoring

    Hi .

    We are using Windows Server 2008 along with Routers , Switches , VOIP Calling etc...Now is there any free network monitoring tool available by which , i can get alters if any of my network devices , router , switch , modem , firewall or windows server is having a problem..

    I check Nagios but i am not sure whether i will set the alerts for network devices...it only supports servers...is it so ? or is there any other free tool available...Is solarwinds tools are good...

    Please help me...

    Thanks....

    Have you looked at Netwrix and Spiceworks?

      Try running a search for 'free syslog server for windows' and see what comes up. Looks like there's a lot out there. Network devices can almost always be configured to send syslog messages to a listening logger, so chances are you'll find something that fits your bill.

        Nagios can monitor any SNMP-capable device, meaning it can monitor just about anything except non-manageable switches.

        What do you want to monitor? Availability/uptime? CPU usage? Line utilization? Nagios (have you considered the Icinga fork?) is for monitoring uptime, while Cacti is great for collecting performance statistics.

          I have been using Monitance recently and it has worked out very well so far. You can monitor up to 2 servers and a website free for life, which is very convenient. They'll send you an alert right to your email or phone if there is ever a problem.
