Hi,

We currently monitor around 20 - 30 servers across multiple sites etc, all sites have Internet. We are looking to have some sort of monitor in our office so we can see visually that all sites are up and then get alerted via email and also visually if any connections go down etc, Does anyone know of any free software to do this, not looking to go down the road of RMM as its too expensive etc. All of the sites have different domains aswell etc.

Regards

Agreed your best bet is Nagios Core but there is also FAN or Fully automated Nagios. Nagios Core is going to give you the greatest flex ability.

Nagios, Icinga (which is practically Nagios); free Dell OpenManage/HP PCM(?) comes with servers/switches sometimes.
