Monit: An easy to use monitoring solution for Linux

Recommended and mentioned products

  1. Monit is a free open source utility for managing and monitoring, processes, files, directories and filesystems on a UNIX system. Monit conducts automatic maintenance and repair and can execute meaningful causal actions in error situations.

    Finally got a landing page built for my little lab, after... about about 1 month ago:

    I'm only running Monit on my OPNsense box, because it lets you configure some really specific conditions to watch/ trigger notifications for, and that was important for my firewall. It's great, but I wish there was a decent UI like M/Monit, but open source.
  2. Complete monitoring and alerting for servers, switches, applications, and services

  3. Icinga is a fork of Nagios and is backward compatible.

    SSL error detection/expire bash script about 16 days ago:

    Collecting reports from multiple servers can turn into a fairly large to-do. That's why things like Icinga, Sensu, or a bunch of others exist - to continuously monitor and alert for a bunch of machines/services/etc.
  4. Checkmk - the software for effective IT monitoring

    freemium €600.0 / Annually

    Monitor external HDDs, alert when it goes down / unmounted about 8 days ago

    Check out CheckMK. Like Nagios, but way better IMHO. Also free and selfhosted. "someone" (me) also wrote farming checks so you can monitor your farm status aswell...
