akk@da is a simple network monitoring system designed for small and medium size computer networks.
akk@da is designed as a pro-active network monitor. It does not wait for information from any agents, systems, etc. It collects information itself every minute (you can decrease this period to as little as 1 second if needed). Almost all services of the monitored hosts are discovered automatically.
Here are some key features of "akk da":
· monitoring of host availability, resources and network services (probes use SNMP, ICMP, raw TCP, SSL, DNS, UCDavis script extensions and many others for checking hosts health and collecting data)
· automatic discover of services available on host like CPU, RAM, network interfaces, disks, processes, etc, etc (you do not have to configure it manually, all you have to do is to add a new host (via web based GUI) and akk@da will discover its services for you)
· collecting performance data about monitored services (fully RRDTool integrated)
· services flaps detection
· possible adding you own probes
· easy way to add support to SNMP devices not supported by akk@da through the template based model
· easy to use web based GUI with support features like:
· alarms presentation with option to approve alarms
· filterable logs
· RRDTool based graphs with performance
· configuration of monitored services or hosts
· akk@da system status and management
· users and groups management
· rights management (you can manage right of the group to every single service if you need)
· tree based hosts organization - it allows organizing monitored resources in easy to browse and quick navigate schema
· views support (you can arrange monitored services in groups you need)
· displaying information in compact mode allows you to estimate the host health on first sight
· context menus available all the time allows quick access to necessary options, pages
· nice look icons which makes easy to identify host/service vendor, function and probe type
What's New in This Release:
· A new network faults inference engine that detects network faults and correlate them to identify the root cause was added.
· GTalk and Gadu-Gadu notifications were added along with top 10 utilization reporting, histograms of test periodicity, new search options, support for Cisco PIX IPSec tunnels, LVS, Powerware UPS, and F5 BigIP (TMM, virtual servers, pools, nodes, failover, fans, power supplies, temperature), and a freshness guard that watches if services are tested frequently enough.
· This release contains many fixes and improvements and is available as a stand-alone app and VMware appliance.
