I am in the middle of putting up a bunch of new hardware at the office. This includes new Cisco 3560s, new HP Servers and a new EMC SAN.
I want to build some kind of server or computer that will take in traps from Microsoft Windows events to errors on my Cisco switches.
I'd like to go open source or pretty cheap as my budget has dwindled down to next to nothing.
What recommendations do you have for network monitoring tools and gathering this type of information?
Thanks for your help.
