Check_MK is a complex addon for Nagios/Icinga and consists of three subprojects. The check and inventory system Check_MK is a general purpose Nagios plugin for retrieving data. It adopts a new approach for collecting data and obsoletes NRPE, check_by_ssh, NSClient, and check_snmp. It features a significant reduction of CPU use on the Nagios host and automatic inventory of items to be checked, and is especially useful with larger Nagios installations. "MK Livestatus" gives immediate and fast access to live and historic Nagios status data. It's a supported backend for many addons including NagVis, NagiosBP, and Thruk. "Check_MK Multisite" is a feature complete replacement for the Nagios GUI, and uses MK Livestatus as a backend. It is very fast, and supports efficient distributed monitoring.
check_openmanage is a plugin for Nagios that checks the hardware health of Dell servers running OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA). The plugin can be used remotely with SNMP or locally with NRPE, check_by_ssh, or similar. It checks the health of the storage subsystem, power supplies, memory modules, temperature probes, etc., and gives an alert if any of the components are faulty or operate outside normal parameters.
Jmx4Perl provides an alternate way of accessing Java JEE Server management interfaces that are based on JMX (Java Management Extensions). It is an agent-based approach where a small Web application deployed on the application server provides HTTP/JSON-based access to JMX MBeans registered within the application server. It is set up from a handful of Perl modules, which can be integrated seamlessly in your own programs. It also includes a Nagios plugin, check_jmx4perl, a jmx4perl command line tool for remote JMX queries and operations, and a readline-based JMX shell j4psh, with context sensitive command completion and syntax highlighting.
check_oracle_health is a plugin for the Shinken (Nagios) monitoring software that allows you to monitor various metrics of an Oracle database. It includes connection time, SGA data buffer hit ratio, SGA library cache hit ratio, SGA dictionary cache hit ratio, SGA shared pool free, PGA in memory sort ratio, tablespace usage, tablespace fragmentation, tablespace I/O balance, invalid objects, and many more.
RealOpInsight is an advanced dashboard management toolkit for Nagios, Zabbix, Zenoss, Icinga, and other common open source monitoring systems including GroundWork, Centreon, Shinken, and op5 Monitor. It provides effective features for monitoring in demanding operations environments such as network operations centers and large data centers.
Opsview Core is a network monitoring software application. It solves the challenges of monitoring modern IT and network systems. It is a drop-in replacement for Nagios Core, with full support for its plugins and 100% compatibility. It is easy to install and configure and is ideal for monitoring applications networks, and Windows, Linux, and Unix servers. VMWare, KVM, Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V are supported, and Amazon EC2 and other cloud services can be monitored. It works with Opsview Mobile to allow you to monitor your systems on the go.
Monitoring::Spooler is a handy queue manager for queueing and delivery of monitoring notifications. It is able to handle several groups of on-call personnel and provides an extensible plugin mechanism to connect it to virtually any remote service which provides some kind of API. It is designed to work nicely with App::Standby.
Shinken is an advanced monitoring system that is based on Nagios, but redesigned and rewritten from scratch while maintaining compatibility. It can monitor all IT devices from systems to end user applications. In case of a failure, Shinken can alert the operation engineers so they can promptly repair it. It has the same capabilities as Nagios along with more advanced built-in facilities such as load balanced and high availability monitoring.
SpurTracer is a push-notification based monitoring solution for heterogenous loosely coupled IT infrastructures. It complements a service-endpoint monitoring solution like Nagios with a component-level interface auto-discovery. It automatically provides a certain level of functional tracing along with many non-functional measurements (e.g. call, error and timeout rates, interface latency, component execution, etc.). While being zero config itself, SpurTracer relies on you adding push notification support to the components you want to monitor. The best way to use SpurTracer is by adding punctual tracing to components in your infrastructure on-demand.
