I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

I think you should try monitorix.

It's a web-based system data collection and monitoring tool.
The whole thing is written in Perl and uses an RRD database for storing historical data.

Here is the home page:
http://www.monitorix.org/

Depending on your Linux implementation you can install it just with

yum install monitorix
or
apt-get install monitorix
etc.

I urgently recommend using the above tools for installation, because there are quite a few dependencies to observe.

Once installed start the tool with

monitorx -c /etc/monitorix/monitorix.conf

Now point your browser to "http://hostname:8080/monitorix" and you'll see quite a lot of information in a graphical representation. A list of features is here:
http://www.monitorix.org/features.html

You can choose between daily, weekly, monthly and yearly reports.
Choosing the latter only makes sense once the tool has run a sufficient amount of time :-)

If your browser runs on the same system as monitorix itself you can of course use "localhost" instead of hostname.

I will have a try

woolmilkporcCommented:
Did you try "yum install monitorix" or "apt-get install monitorix?" as suggested above?

Manually installing just the monitorix package alone is not sufficient because of the many dependencies.

Anyway, the download link is here:

http://www.monitorix.org/downloads.html

and here are the instructions:

On the left click your particular Linux flavor!

Check with your server hardware manufacturers. HP, Dell etc. have their own tools, and many also have hardware built-in (like HP's ILO and Dell's iDRAC) which you setup with their own IP and to which you can then connect via a browser and check the server's status, as well as having remote access to BIOS settings, boot console etc.

Try from command line

monitorix -c /etc/monitorix/monitorix.conf

then point your browser to port 8080 on the respective host.

If this works we can try to create a service later, yet I don't know why it shouldn't have been configured during installation.

You installed the source code of monitorix, not the binaries. Sorry, didn't see that before.

This is the wrong package:  monitorix-2.5.2-1.rf.src.rpm

You should have installed:  monitorix-2.5.2-1.el6.rf.noarch.rpm

Doesn't "yum install monitorix" work for you?

You missed three dependencies which you'll have to install.

But again: Why don't you try "yum install monitorix" ??

Well, it works on my Fedora systems but obviously not on RHEL.

So get the missing packages from here and install them manually using "rpm":

http://pkgs.repoforge.org/perl-MIME-Lite/perl-MIME-Lite-3.029-1.el6.rfx.noarch.rpm
http://pkgs.repoforge.org/perl-RRD-Simple/perl-RRD-Simple-1.44-1.el6.rf.noarch.rpm

If perl(MIME::Lite) is still missing after installing the above (which I doubt) get it from here:
https://cpan.metacpan.org/authors/id/R/RJ/RJBS/MIME-Lite-3.030.tar.gz
unpack it and install it with "perl Makefile.PL; make; make test; make install"
