Are there any online monitoring solutions? I tried nagio and gave up after the initial install. I’m a newbie in Linux.

Network Monitoring Tool


I've been using PandoraFms to monitor my company's network (SNMP, ICMP) , the computer systems (Software agents on each system) and to monitor web pages. It's free and easy to handle. You can take a look at it here: Network monitoring

Win7, Win 8, Win Server

Well, we actually used some of the described tools. And we ended up using
CloudView NMS CloudView NMS Home - Network Management, Monitoring and SCADA solution . Seems like it can monitor/manage practically anything:
SNMP, sysLog TL1, services, web access, servers...). They discovered our network put in maps (they use Google maps).
Secure multi-user web access with configurable profiles . Alarms forwarding via many protocols (including e-mail)
Scalable to thousands of nodes and unlike others they do not charge as your network grows -
from my point of view very important feature :-).

It`s strange Total Network Inventory didn`t make up to that list. I`ve been using GLPI+OCSInventory for some time, than Lansweeper but ended up with TNI software licence management though it is not freeware. But in Win network (40 nodes and a couple of Win 2003 servers) this works the best. This dont need any agents installed in other PCs and works great, instead of other software that crashes from time to time. Scheduled check and different notifications, such as e-mail for example.
