    Monitoring software for a Dedi?

    I am wondering if someone could reccomend some free (or close to free) software for monitoring the status of a dedicated server. I have one that pings the server, but I want something that might be able to check the status of the HTTP server, FTP server, and other services...

    Can anyone make a reccomendation?

    Any reccomendations for a Windows system? Until I get my networking problems straightened out on my VMWare Linux box... I can't handle Linux...

    I'm sorry... I misread its description...

    That _would_ work since it is server-side... and the server is Linux... but I was looking more along the lines of client-side remote monitoring in case it crashes...

    You could check out:

    http://www.8th-wonder.net/ware.asp

    Scroll down to Eye in the Sky. There's a 14 day trial to download (and an update right below it). I think the cost is very minimal to register it after that.

    Cheers

    Or check out http://www.alertsite.com for something completely outsourced.

    Or if you want something just for a little while until you get your other server fixed up, I can monitor your server remotely. Email me to work something out.

    I've personally used netsaint and big brother (http://www.bb4.com). Both have worked quite well.

    My University uses bb4 to monitor its servers as well.
