I will be setting up a LAN at home where there will be a few PCs connected to the network.
My idea is that I will have linux box where I will route all the traffic through to monitor it. I was wondering what would be a free solution to go "hardcore" on this. When I mean hardcore, I really mean hardcore. I want stats, packet shaper etc.. It would be a learning process for me too. The only thing is that alot of solutions out there are more enterprise and expensive.
Anyone here use or know a good solution? I was told I could use m0nowall on freeBSD. Another thing I was looking at would be Squid. But to be honest I'm not sure.
Whats a good free software that can do this? Perhaps something really cheap if there is a cost involved.
I'm working on setting something up for monitoring my bandwidth/traffic on multiple interfaces. I have setup interface aliases so I have eth0, eth0:0, eth0:1 and the issue I'm running into is that it seems snmp cannot tell the diff between the aliased interfaces. I've found references in the cacti forums of using ipchains rules to track the bandwidth, but I've not found a good howto that explains what I need to get going on this.
I currently have a windows 2003 server box which is being used only for huge file downloads (Media server). Wanted to know if there is some sorta program or script that lets me check the current connections and what speed each connection(ip) is downloading at?
I want to monitor my application to make sure it is 24x7 uptime, if there is anything interrupt, I will be notified by email/SMS right away. There are several web monitoring service, but they all monitor ports, not application. I have bad experience, like, althoguh the web server is alive, but the application is already dead.
So, I want to monitor application instead of monitor a port. Anybody knows where I may find this kind of service?
I see a lot of web hosts that link to webhostingstuff.com which tracks the uptime of their main page. i would like to offer a similar service, where i track and list the uptime of hosts. can anyone point me in the proper direction for this? is there a particular script that I can purchase? how is this done?
My server has a tyan thunder 8kse (s2892) motherboard, and i'm looking for some script to monitor it. Unfortunately, tyan only offers such applications for windows. So, how can i monitor the motherboard in linux? Or preferably, webbased.
We have a few customers who have multiple C classes with us and we are wondering how most of you monitor for blacklisting.
We currently randomly pick a few IPS and check them once a month but this is not very thorough. We were wondering if there is a program out there that can check say a /20 automatically once a month or atleast something we can initiate an automated check once a month with?
I am wondering what services it is best to monitor with Nagios which I've installed on my Centos 5.3 VPS. I wish to monitor and understand all essential services of the VPS itself at this stage but, generally, to make the best possible use of Nagios as an analytical tool as well as basic monitoring notifications, etc.
I already have a rough idea based on the main services being run. But I imagine there may be more to this than meets the eye, in particular, in view of any potential performance cost, etc.
I am especially keen to obtain as detailed a picture as possible concerning performance related criteria with a mind to indicating possible improvements that could be made.
We have a website that uses php include. It is specified in .htaccess to parse all html file to parse for php so php include can be executed.
We don't know the exact cause but our Addhandler line in .htaccess gets keep commented by someone or something and include file (footer) does not show up from time to time. I was told cpanel update inserts the comment but I am not sure.
My question is:
1. How can I prevent this from happening?
2. If it gets modified, how can I get notification?
