check_nwc_health is a plugin for the Shinken (or Nagios/Icinga) monitoring system. It is used to check hardware health, environment, interfaces, pools, uptime, etc. of a great range of the most popular network components like switches, routers, firewalls, proxies, load balancers, etc. Currently it can monitor: Cisco IOS, Cisco Nexus, F5 BIG-IP, CheckPoint Firewall1, Juniper NetScreen, HP Procurve, Nortel, Brocade 4100/4900, EMC DS 4700, EMC DS 24, Allied Telesyn, and Blue Coat SG600.
Upsilon is a distributed, flexible, and extensible system monitoring application. Being distributed means you run service checks on Upsilon nodes in your network where it makes sense, either on every server or on a management network, inside or outside the firewall. You can run checks on secure, hard to reach networks, and push those results to a central server. You can optionally execute "agentless" checks just by using SSH. Being flexible means that if you can script it, you can monitor it. Unlike most monitoring systems, the monitoring scripts are external to the main server, so you can use Upsilon to execute your monitoring scripts in an extremely robust way. Upsilon has been used to monitor many different things and is API-compatible with all nagios monitoring scripts. Being extensible means you can add monitoring checks to Upsilon at runtime without needing to restart the server. The upsilon-node and upsilon-web projects both have their own REST APIs.
