At my previous job, I set up Hobbit Monitor to monitor ~30 Linux servers,
plus external services such as SMTP, HTTP, and DNS. The server ran on a
PIII 500MHZ machine with 384M RAM just fine. I chose it for the following
- good dashboard-style web GUI (reminiscent of BB)
- ease to manage (server-central config, plain text)
- historical trendlines by RRDTOOL are built-in for many tests.
- quick results (monitoring of processes, log files, services are so
- easy to extend
- open-source. I got to peek into the C code to figure out a thing or
two at times.
