I am using Cfengine on a bunch of linux boxes, everything is working great. I can push changes etc , it is wonderful. I am also using the "freespace" function for tracking diskspace usage on all the linux machines.
I was wondering if i can leverage cfengine to monitor cpu usage, memory usage etc. I realise that,it is not designed to be Network MONITORING Tool.
What is a good approach, do i use mrtg along with cfengine ? Any ideas from users with large setups ?
Ofcourse , i can use sar, top, vmstat, iostat etc on the linux box and use the
stats from that data via cfengine , but that will involve a lot of work to make
The Right Tool For The Job, in this case, is Nagios, either with it's own
NRPE-based resource monitoring, or SNMP-based monitoring. The SNMP way is
cleaner, but it does require the proper configuration of more different
technologies than NRPE/Nagios.
(All way off-topic for a cfengine list, though, of course)
