Network and Service Monitoring System is a tool for assisting network administrators in managing and monitoring the activities of their network. It helps in getting the status information of critical processes running at any machine in the network. It can be used to monitor the bandwidth usage of individual machines in the network. It also performs checks for IP-based network services like POP3, SMTP, NNTP, FTP, etc., and can give you the status of the DNS server. The system uses MySQL for storing the information, and the output is displayed via a Web interface.
LogAnalyzer is a Web front-end for syslog and other network event data. It provides easy browsing, searching, basic analysis, and some graphics. Data is taken from databases or plain syslog text files, so LogAnalyzer does not require changes to an existing logging infrastructure. Depending on the log data present, it can process syslog messages, Windows event log entries, and some more exotic things. Its troubleshooting support enables users to quickly find solutions to problems seen in the log data. LogAnalyzer was previously called phpLogCon, and has been renamed since v3.
ntopmg is a network probe that shows network usage in a way similar to what top does for processes. It acts as a Web server, creating an HTML dump of the network status. It sports a flow collector, an HTTP-based client interface for creating ntop-centric monitoring applications, and RRD for persistently storing traffic statistics. Its C++ core can be scripted in Lua, for changing the appearance and extending functionality.
Moab Grid Suite is a professional grid workload management solution that integrates scheduling, management, monitoring, and reporting of workloads across independent clusters. Moab makes moving to a grid easy by adding grid-optimized job submission and management in a matter of minutes. Moab optimizes data staging and seamlessly integrates with existing security mechanisms or with grid security tool kits such as Globus. It gives sites extensive control over ownership-based access, priority, and service levels. It provides fine-tuned control over the workload and resources to make the grid usable.
Snort is a network intrusion detection and prevention system. It is the most widely deployed technology of its kind in the world. It performs detection using a variety of methods including rules-based detection, anomaly detection, and heuristic analysis of network traffic. Its rules language is open source and available to the public as well.
PyWBEM is a Python library for making CIM operations over HTTP using the WBEM protocol. It is based on the idea that a good WBEM client should be easy to use and not necessarily require a large amount of programming knowlege. It is suitable for a large range of tasks from simply poking around to writing Web and GUI applications.
