    Best server and network monitoring utility?

    What is the best server and network monitoring utility that can monitor CPU load, memory usage, disk I/O, network speed, latency, packet loss, etc., and report via email the moment something goes wrong?

    I would say N-Able. However it requires a monitoring server so you would need a few
    servers before it's worth it.

    I have 3 dedicated servers that I need to monitor, however, I don't want to pay huge amounts of money for this. Looking for something open source preferably.

    nagios
    munin
    collectd
    observium
    zabbix

    for a small number of servers munin would probably be sufficient and it is certainly the quickest to setup.

    Observium

    May need to wait for their new alerting module for the latter part though.

    +1 - Unfortunately they recently did go for a pricing model for future updates, however their existing code works great. For better alerting you'd need to pay $100 pounds / year (which is still extremely cheap)

    Zabbix has been good for me, a bit of a pain to get setup out the gate but it can do a lot of really nice things.

    Zabbix is one of the best for monitoring purposes.

    I usually use Monit these days.

    a) it is very simple to set up, 1/4 as long as Nagios
    b) unlike Nagios, it is very easy to also get it to hit a web page, check for a string, and if not bounce apache/nginx . You can even monitor UDP services without too much difficulty
