Diald manages network links, particularly on-demand links such as dial-up SLIP or PPP. It can also be used to manage and/or monitor any network interface. Diald monitors traffic on the link and makes intelligent (and highly configurable) decisions as to when the link should be brought up or taken down. The included control program, dctrl, runs on any system with Tcl/Tk (yes, even Windows) and allows diald to be controlled and monitored remotely.
The Event monitor project is an approach to network management based on message passing between manager and managed nodes. It's based on a client/server platform, where the server is the manager node, and all clients are managed nodes. This tool is under development, but has lots of features implemented, like a graphical console, message passing layer, one disk monitor and clients for sending messages (both API and binary forms are provided).
IPAcco is a software package that helps a network admin to collect, visualize, and analyze IP accounting data from the Cisco routers. It downloads IP accounting data from the router, stores it in the MySQL database, provides Web access to the collected data, presenting it in a convenient graphical form, and allows the user to specify various criteria for data selection.
MIB Smithy SDK is a dynamic extension to Tcl/Tk (8.4+) that allows development of custom scripts for controlling SNMP agents, manipulating SMI definitions, doing conversions, and more. It is based on the core of Muonics' MIB Smithy, and the SDK supports SMIv1 and SMIv2, as well as SNMPv1/v2c/v3 with HMAC-SHA-96 and HMAC-MD5-96 authentication and DES/CBC and AES128/CFB privacy. It also provides complete read-write access to all elements of SMI/MIB Module definitions, unlike similar extensions that provide only read access to a limited subset. The SDK allows multiple discrete SMI databases and SNMP sessions, and provides all of the built-in validation and error recovery capabilites of the full product, without the visual MIB development environment.
Network Traffic Analyser (formerly known as sniffer) is designed to be an extremely powerful, configurable, and versatile tool for monitoring network traffic. It can be used as a plain sniffer, as a tool for accounting, dynamic firewall updates, and many more things. It features scripting support and an event-driven architecture.
OSSMON is an easy-to-use, Web-based monitoring package based on the OSSWEB application framework. It supports SNMP monitoring as well as specific services like POP3, SMTP, and ping. The main goal is to have a system that monitors network devices and produces alerts when a problem occurs or a device is inaccessible. Alert rules can be defined based on variables from the database or received from remote devices. It has reporting and performance charts, dynamic maps, a status console, and supports small and medium-sized networks. It has no external dependencies; everything runs on Naviserver.
