Keywatch is a free, OSGi-based monitoring system that provides the adaptability of a modern monitoring system without being complex or hard to configure. It support agents written in any language, and comes pre-packed with a Perl agent and a set of check scripts. Keywatch also supports Nagios check scripts.
SysScope is a graphing solution that facilitates the visual representation of RRDtool's Round Robin Databases (RRD). It retrieves the graph options from an Apache-style configuration file and, after making the necessary calls to rrdgraph, it generates static or dynamic HTML pages containing the graphs. The following backends are supported for the generation of the dynamic pages: CGI, FastCGI, mod_python, and WSGI.
TinyIDS is a distributed intrusion detection system (IDS) for Unix systems. It is based on the client/server architecture and has been developed with security in mind. The client, tinyids, collects information from the local system by running its collector backends. The collected information may include anything, from file contents to file metadata or even the output of system commands. The client passes all this data through a hashing algorithm and a unique checksum (hash) is calculated. This hash is then sent to one or more TinyIDS servers (tinyidsd), where it is compared with a hash that had previously been stored in the databases of those remote servers for this specific client. A response indicating the result of the hash comparison is finally sent back to the client. Management of the remotely stored hash is possible through the client's command line interface. Communication between the client and the server can be encrypted using RSA public key infrastructure (PKI).
Tomcat Status Widget is a dashboard widget for monitoring the status of applications deployed to a Tomcat server container. It shows a list of the currently deployed Web applications and their status. It allows easy monitoring of the number of active sessions, as well as a quick method of restarting specific applications.
Trojan scan is a simple shell script that allows for simple but relatively effective checking for trojans, rootkits and other malware that may be using your server and network for unwanted (and possibly illegal) purposes. It works by listing all processes that use the Internet with the lsof command (using -Pni flags). This list is then transformed into signatures in the form of process_name:port_number:user. These signatures then are matched against the allowed process defined in the configuration. If any signatures of running processes are found that do not match the allowed signatures, an email report is sent including ps, ls, and optional lsof output.
The WebReboot Plugin for Nagios is a suite of commands that can be used within Nagios to monitor a server and take corrective action if necessary via the WebReboot line of products. For example, the plugin can be used to alert you if a host is powered down, versus simply not responding to network requests. Likewise, it can be used to reboot a server if a host fails to respond to ping, or to shut down a server when a critical temperature threshold is exceeded. The commands can be mixed-and-matched with all existing Nagios commands, maximizing total network coverage.
