Cacti On An ISPConfig Server Within 10 Easy Steps
In this article I describe how to install and setup the Cacti in a ISPConfig Server. Cacti is a complete network graphing solution designed to harness the power of RRDTool's data storage and graphing functionality. There aren't many differences from installing in other ISP Managers or standalone Apache installations. I tried many others solutions, but Cacti is very simple and fast to implement.
Securing Your Server With A Host-based Intrusion Detection System
This article shows how to install and run OSSEC HIDS, an Open Source Host-based Intrusion Detection System. It performs log analysis, integrity checking, rootkit detection, time-based alerting and active response. It helps you detect attacks, software misuse, policy violations and other forms of inappropriate activities.
Installing Zenoss Network Monitor on a Ubuntu Server
This tutorial shows how to install and configure the Zenoss network monitoring tool on a Ubuntu 6.06 system. Zenoss is a free open-source tool that allows you to monitor servers, applications, networks, power, etc. regarding their configuration, availability, performance, and so on.

How To Monitor A System With Sysstat On Centos 4.3
A common task for System Administrators is to monitor and care for a server. That's fairly easy to do at a moment's notice, but how to keep a record of this information over time? One way to monitor your server is to use the Sysstat package.
Network Management With OpenNMS
OpenNMS is an opensource enterprise network management tool. It helps network administrators to monitor critical services on remote machines and collects the information of remote nodes by using SNMP. OpenNMS has a very active community, where you can register yourself to discuss your problems. Normally openNMS installation and configuration takes time, but I have tried to cover the installation and configuration part in a few steps.
Intrusion Detection With BASE And Snort
This tutorial shows how to install and configure BASE (Basic Analysis and Security Engine) and the Snort intrusion detection system (IDS) on a Debian Sarge system. BASE provides a web front-end to query and analyze the alerts coming from a Snort IDS system. With BASE you can perform analysis of intrusions that Snort has detected on your network.
Postfix Monitoring With Mailgraph And pflogsumm
This article describes how you can monitor your Postfix mailserver with the tools Mailgraph and pflogsumm. Mailgraph creates daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly graphs of sent, received, bounced, and rejected emails and also of spam and viruses, if SpamAssassin and ClamAV are integrated into Postfix. These graphs can be accessed with a browser, whereas pflogsumm ("Postfix Log Entry Summarizer") can be used to send reports of Postfix activity per email.
Server Monitoring With BixData
BixData is a system, application, and network monitoring tool which allows you to easily monitor nearly every aspect of your servers. It can be used for general reporting, for sending notifications when problems arise, or for automatic maintenance and repairs - by executing scripts when errors or particular conditions arise.
The BixData system is made of three separate parts. The BixAgent runs on any machine you want to monitor. The BixServer is used to monitor machines remotely and to keep track of many different machines. The BixDesktop is a graphical interface that is used to setup and interact with the rest of the system.
Server Monitoring With munin And monit
In this article I will describe how to monitor your server with munin and monit. munin produces nifty little graphics about nearly every aspect of your server (load average, memory usage, CPU usage, MySQL throughput, eth0 traffic, etc.) without much configuration, whereas monit checks the availability of services like Apache, MySQL, Postfix and takes the appropriate action such as a restart if it finds a service is not behaving as expected. The combination of the two gives you full monitoring: graphics that lets you recognize current or upcoming problems (like "We need a bigger server soon, our load average is increasing rapidly."), and a watchdog that ensures the availability of the monitored services.
Network Monitoring With Zabbix
Zabbix has the capability to monitor just a about any event on your network from network traffic to how many papers are left in your printer. It produces really cool grahps.
In this howto we install software that has an agent and a server side. The goal is to end up with a setup that has a nice web interface that you can show off to your boss ;)
