opsview quesion

I'm trying to monitor my linux boxes and I have installed opsview on one of the servers. Now I want to monitor other servers. Do I need to install NRPE  on other servers or do I have to install opsview-agent?  Please advise.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

the opsview-agent is based on NRPE, so it does not make much difference... (if you use opsview, i would take the opsview-agent bundle)

additionally you should look check_mk  (http://mathias-kettner.de/check_mk)  which is often treated as better alternative to NRPE
