    Network Monitoring Software?

    I'm looking for some input on network monitoring and IDS software packages.

    I have currently been looking at Nagios and MIDAS (http://midas-nms.sourceforge.net/). I have not tried nagios yet. I have tried MIDAS and it seems like a real nice solution all though you have to setup the MIDAS client on each machine to monitor.

    Any know of any others that I can check out?

    Thanks!

    Network Monitoring.

    Midas is nice. Personally I'm a bigger fan of just using Nagios for montoring, APAN for historical trending (kind of like larrd for big brother) and Nessus and snort for scanning and IDS, along with the grsecurity patches for linux.

    Thanks for the info. I do think MIDAS is coming along very nicely. It was very easy to setup. I started looking into Nagios. But it looked like such a pain to setup and use. I was hoping for a compromise between the 2 applications. But i guess there is none yet.

    Thanks for the offer. But I would much rather do it myself so that I know how everything works and can learn if I need to do it again.

    check out MIDAS. I don't know if the server runs on a Win system. But it has a native windows client for monitoring windows machines.
