Description: An extensible service monitoring daemon which can be
used to monitor network or non-network resources.
Written in Perl 5, this code should be able to run
out-of-the-box on many platforms. It supports a flexible
configuration file, and can send out email, alphanumeric
pages, or any other type of alert when it detects the
failure of a service. The server can react to traps, in
addition to poll services for success or failure. Service
monitors that come with the distribution can test for
ping, telnet, ftp, smtp, http, nntp, pop3, imap, disk
space, and SNMP queries.
Keywords: network monitoring SNMP daemon service monitoring alert management
