Enterprise Network Monitoring Tools and Utilities

Big Brother Big Brother Big Brother monitors System and Network-delivered services for availability. Your current network status is displayed on a color-coded web page in near-real time. When problems are detected, you’re immediately notified by e-mail, pager, or text messaging.

Platforms: Windows, Linux, Unix


Cacti Cacti Cacti is a complete frontend to RRDTool, it stores all of the necessary information to create graphs and populate them with data in a MySQL database. The frontend is completely PHP driven.Platforms: Windows, Linux, Unix






MRTG Multi Router Traffic Grapher (MRTG) If you manage a network, you should be using this tool. MRTG is much more than a router tool, it can also monitor switches, servers, applications, and more!Platforms: Windows, Linux, Unix




ntop ntop ntop is a network traffic probe that shows the network usage, similar to what the popular top Unix command does. ntop is based on libpcap and it has been written in a portable way in order to virtually run on every Unix platform and on Win32 as well.Platforms: Windows, Linux, Unix


RRDtool RRDtool Round Robin Database tool (RRDtool) is a very scalable database and graphing solution that works in conjunction with data collection software (i.e., MRTG, SmokePing).Platforms: Windows, Linux, Unix




SmokePing SmokePing SmokePing provides detailed graphs of latency information. SmokePing includes built-in probes for ICMP, Cisco devices, Telnet, LDAP, Radius, SSH, and many other protocols.Platforms: Linux, Unix


SNIPS System and Network Integrated Polling Software (SNIPS) SNIPS (System & Network Integrated Polling Software) is a system and network monitoring software that runs on Unix systems and can monitor network and system devices. It is capable of monitoring DNS, NTP, TCP or web ports, host performance, syslogs, radius servers, BGP peers, etc. New monitors can be added easily (via a C or Perl API).

Platforms: Linux, Unix









ZABBIX ZABBIX ZABBIX is a graphical monitoring tool that provides visual feedback of performance and availability problems. ZABBIX provides service information, application monitoring, server monitoring, and network monitoring.

    Good network monitoring software continues to send status messages and traffic to efficiently keep track of any outages on the network. Network monitoring watches hardware such as router or network servers for responses.

    We are looking for a way to continuously monitor our security video servers (have about 40 total in the Ga. region) like our other critical servers out there, in order to ensure the OS is running and we have network connectivity to them in order to minimize downtime. As a possible alternative I would be interested in getting an application we could run that would automatically run through a list of IP addresses of our devices, pinging each one periodically and popping up some kind of alert to tell us if I have a server no longer responding to ping.
