Munin – Simple Monitoring at its Finest

On Thursday, I discovered Munin, a nifty daemon for monitoring just about anything on any type of system. I had previously tried Nagios, but found it to be cumbersome and simply too much for my personal needs. I want a monitoring solution that doesn’t have any bells or whistles, doesn’t alert me, but is there when I want to check up on my new system. Munin is perfect for just that. Munin’s installation is simple and its configuration script will setup a majority of the plugins automatically based on its discovery of your installed packages. Munin is also easily customizable and its scripting interface is very easy to utilize.

Check out some graphs for my system below:
