    Default Solaris server monitoring script / tool - Beginner Question

    Hello,

    I am a junior SA. We have a Solaris 8 Sun F6800 server, currently
    running Oracle DB and Veritas file system & volume manager I've been
    asked to provide notification to my management (via email, SMS to
    mobile) during any of the following occurences at the server on a
    regular basis :

    - Hardware malfunction alerts
    - Disk (root, mirror, SAN) utilization alerts and statistics
    - CPU/Memory utilization statistics
    - Server Unavailability & appliation/services inactive alerts

    Are there any scripts or free tools out there that will do the trick??
    .. I need something simple, easy to configure and doesn't hog up
    resources.

    Thanks for your help

    You bet. Big Brother, at http://bb4.com will take you half a day to
    configure if you have compilers set up, and will do the trick. Red is
    bad, green is good. Even management can understand the user interface.

    Nagios (http://www.nagios.org/) is also pretty good. I've used
    both, although it's been a while since I used BB. I think I have a
    slight preference for BB. Nagios is highly configurable, but the syntax
    of the configuration files is a bit fussy.

    We use both of them here. BB is a bit easier to configure, and we use
    it for external testing. Nagios, we use for internal testing. They
    complement, rather than compete with, each other.
