Alternatives to RMS


(Anthony C) #1

With the RMS beta ending soon, can anyone recommend a replacement service or tool? I have been trialling it on some of my servers for a couple of months and found it very useful on a few occasions - finding out about a server being down before the customer notices is really helpful.

I am looking for something simple to implement (like RMS) with an alert sent via email when something goes wrong - any ideas?

You could set up SNMP over a secure tunnel.

nagios… needs tcp access to the servers to check their status. might need to open up some firewall ports.

Nagios is my monitoring tool of choice, but instead of opening up a bunch of ports (if you are monitoring remotely), there are Nagios “encapsulators” like NRPE (IIRC) that can help you monitor a remote, firewalled network in a reasonably secure way.
