Various Monitors in Use
- Pingem has been very helpful in watching machine/network status
- Don`t forget to check other services - dns, email, lpd, mountd, nfs, web, etc.
- spingem does "smart" job of detecting true server outages (vs. network related)
- Easy in routed network - just check SUBNET.254
- Almost disk full conditions (logger is your friend! ;-)
- Coupling with steam agent on RAID arrays
- Track overtemps by having gettemp use syslog
- Monitor runaway processes by having yaps use syslog
- Monitor and *AUTOFIX* nscd problems by triggering action
- Mr. Swatch can auto-page/Email letting you know right away about problems!
but we have some "throttling" so this doesn`t get out of hand ...
