Or Yet another Network Monitoring/Management System
myNMS comprises a set of tools which gather data from various sources including: These are processed and stored in an SQL (mySQL) database. A query script gives various views of / reports on the stored information, as shown in the demo.

  • NET-SNMP (formerly UCD-SNMP) This is the SNMP toolkit used by myNMS (and no doubt contless other network monitoring/management applications) to talk to SNMP devices. It is based on the 'classic' CMU (Carnegie-Mellon University) SNMP stack.

  • Scotty Juergen Schoenwaelder has written another SNMP stack, implemented as an extension to Tcl.

  • MRTG This must be the most widely used open source traffic graphing application. I believe it is used for graphing not just network but web traffic etc.

  • NOCOL This is a venerable status-monitoring tool: originally it was designed to display on a simple VDU, but now it has a web front end. Development has been sporadic over the years, with a spate of activity in 2000.

  • Big Brother Much more wizzy, flashy-looking alternative to NOCOL

  • HP Top Tools for Hubs and Switches (not Open Source)

    Other possibly interesting applications which I haven't, for one reason or another, investigated further:

  • Nomad
  • NetSaint
  • gxsnmp
  • OpenNMS

  • MUTiny SNMP Node Manager written in Perl/Tk using net-snmp, running on any *N*X platform.
    Current Status: waiting (since May 2000) for Manchester University to 'get the licensing structure set up'.
