We're looking for a tool to use to proactively monitor Solaris boxes (ideally Oracle databases as well). As a bear minimum we need to be able to check that the box is accessible (i.e. it can be seen on the network) and is up. We also need to know if certain processes are running (the services it is providing) and to have error messages in the messages file flagged up to us. Interface to mail via SMTP would be useful as well.
Can anyone reccomend a product?
Unfortunately right now free is a definate requirement (I'm told there's no budget).
