Some Random thoughts on Event Management
- What is event management? Monitor, Log/Notify, Fix
- Polling versus interupt driven
- Easy (?) to do in small environment - harder to scale in size, space, & time
- Commercial products available (CA-Unicenter, BMC-Patrol, ECO-Tools)
- HP OpenView & SunNet Manager are more Networking oriented
- Can be complex, bloated, not configurable, expensive (!), more than you need
- Free/commercial Web monitoring tools ... these guys mostly "get it" IMHO
- Argus and Big Brother also look interesting ...
- Swatch is something we REALLY use in a REAL world environment ...
- And it is free - use the event manager you allready have - syslog! ;-)
