SysOrb is a cross-platform software system for monitoring servers (Win/Lin/Unix/Novell), applications, switches, routers, firewalls, printers, and copiers. SysOrb has many advanced features and yet it has a simple and easy-to-use web interface which means short implementation time and significantly less training needed than with other competing systems. SysOrb saves metrics data for up to four years. It features reporting and alert notification (e-mail, pager, SMS, Event Log, and custom) capabilities. SysOrb offers thousands of parameters, with which to monitor the target systems. NetChecks, AgentChecks, and SNMPChecks are the three main categories of checks. Monitor ICMP, FTP, SMTP, HTTP, and free memory, free disk space, CPU utilization, Event Log (+ any other log) as well as service/process presence, uptime, and performance counters. SNMPChecks monitors routers, and switches. SysOrb is very well suited for Managed Service Providers, providing in-house and remote monitoring for a number of different customers within the same system.
