Open Source System and Network Management Software




This is mostly notes for myself… however, it was a useful post on NANOG that I wanted to keep track of. So I’m listing some packages to manage systems and devices via SNMP, syslog, daemons on the hosts, etc… and of course including graphing of time series data and such too.

One thought on “Open Source System and Network Management Software

  1. NMIS should be downloaded form opmantek.com not sourceforge. They up to version 8 – it is UNBELIEVABLY good, can’t understand how or why they have done such a major release and kept it free of charge.

    I have taken out all my HP software and put it in, it’s heaps better and I would have paid $ for it.
