Hi guys, I would like to know if you can help me to built a list of OpenSource software that can fill my needs.

1. I need a network program monitor that can monitor my switchs and ports and alert me when they go down. Right now, I'm using Solarwinds NPM and I would like to replace it.

2. I need a program that can backup switch configuration or push it to specific devices. Right now, I using Solarwinds Cattools.

3. I need a program to watch the performance of the network or any servers.

4. I need a program that can manage network inventory, like a database that have the serial number, switch model and ip address.

Can we do that with some OpenSource project ?


Right now, I'm thinking about these :

1. Nagios with Observium and Zenoss or Opennms

2. Rancid

3.Zabbix

4. Racktables

Hi all,

Can any one please confirm about the mentioned below detials are supported
over observium .


- Interface monitoring ( All ypes of pors as STM's, FE , GE , XGE , etc
- device statisics (CPU, Memory , etc )
- IPSLA MIB support
- QOS/COS support
- RRD suuport
- Format of files relaed to data of graphs
- VPN/neighbour prefix details
- Status of Routing protocols


-How much of Hardware requirement will be needed for monitoring of about 50
Routers along with 150 L3/L2 switches considering polling time for about 5
min. As an average routers have about 20 ports nd L3 switches with about 40
ports eachs, nd layer switches have 25 ports.


- How actually network discovery works for observium ? I mean do I have
to just enable SNMP with same community and same Snmp version on all my
devices so that observium can discover my whole network and does observium
also show me the whole map for my network ( connectivity b/w my devices)
and most important do i need to make any device as Seed device for my
network ? from which it will automatically penetrate to whole
network...Further more after discovering of my device can i filter those
graphs so that I can only plot useful or main graphs


- Can I also make groups to those graphs I mean is it possible that I
can make a separate tab for my roters and the \n separate tab for switches
etc.

Thanks
