RE: Network monitor
I'll agree with others that nagios is a very useful tool. It provides a lot
more tools for reporting than some of the other programs I tried. And since
you can set up parent-child relationships between destinations, it wont give
you a bunch of warnings for children unreachable if the parent goes down.
While it is only in unstable, it easily backports to stable. I have .deb's
available via anonymous ftp for anyone who want to try it on stable. Just
drop me a note and I'll point you to the proper place.
