Hi,

I have a small IT company in Denmark, and I am looking for a good system to monitor all my customers servers.

I have 10 customers all with their own Windows servers, and I wold like a system where I central at my office can monitor the state of all my customers system.

It should display state of hardware like the disks, it should display state of dns server etc.

Do anyone of a system to handle this? I would be okay if it is open source.

Systems you will find a lot, if it is open source more a wish, as monitoring is enterprise functionality where is earned money.

System center is an option, nevertheless not th echeapest option, dependend on you realtion to MS. You may have a look at starwind tools.

In earlier times, SNMP was used for monitoring, if this is enough (what targets more on hardwae monitoring), then you may find some older tools fir small money or even for free. But newer monitoring tools do a lot more than just to collect snmp information.

Nagios does quite a bit, depending on how it is configured - not sure of cost.

Nagios, is OpenSource so base is zero cost, some extensions might cost.

Spiceworks is also worth a look for a small setup
