I want to setup a network/server monitoring/management tool in the coming weeks and I am mainly considering Nagios, Groundwork Open Source and Spring Source - Hyperic
I already run a cacti server to monitor all the servers here (a heterogeneous environment on the server side) and have been really pleased with Cacti as a tool, however now I want to extend that further.
Does anyone have advice about a particular system to use or try out?
Can anyone offer any advice on which would be the better choice of the three options I listed, or even reccomend another alternative?
The reasoning is the important part of this question - why is one system better than another in your opinion?
Thanks in advance for any help.
