Looking for a Distibuted Monitoring/Managment Framework

  Asked By: Dale    Date: Mar 30    Category: Java    Views: 648

I am looking for a framework for monitoring/management a bunch of distributed
Java applications inside a LAN. Before JDMK becomes partly open-source I had
developed one for myself using JMX remoting but was not willing to return to
not-exactly-what-i-want JMX world.

Does any of you know any such framework? What I would like to have is a simple
framework with small side-effects on my code and a reliable communication under
the hood.

To find out what's running and get notified when services / hosts / servers / die you need http://www.nagios.org/about/ Nagios - an Open Source host, service and network monitoring program.

If you want to examine traffic on your network you need Wireshark http://www.wireshark.org/faq.html#q1.1 described as the world's most popular network protocol analyzer. It has a rich and powerful feature set and runs on most computing platforms including Windows, OS X, and Linux. Wireshark used to be known as Ethereal.

You can get lots of addins / graphing tools etc for nagios, probably can for wireshark, a keyword search on this site will show yo who else has commented on them. Both programs go back a long way and are actively developed.

You might also look at ntop http://www.ntop.org/overview.html I find it very helpful in seeing what is going on on the network. and http://www.zenoss.com/

look at these :
