The EDDIE Tool 0.35 reviewDownload
The EDDIE Tool is a system monitoring, security and performance analysis agent developed entirely in Python
The EDDIE Tool is a system monitoring, security and performance analysis agent developed entirely in Python. It runs standalone on a system and performs checks and other actions as defined by an extensible configuration.
The EDDIE Tool can perform all basic system monitoring checks, such as: filesystem; processes; system load; and network configuration.
It can also perform such network monitoring tasks as: ping checks; HTTP checks; POP3 tests; SNMP queries; RADIUS authentication tests; and customized TCP port checks.
Finally, a few checks lend themselves to security monitoring: watching files for changes; and scanning logfiles.
The EDDIE Tool can also send any collected statistic to RRD files to be displayed graphically by any standard RRD tool.
No need to run multiple monitoring and data collection agents. Monitoring rules are just like Python expressions and can be as simple or as complex as needed. Advanced alert control functionality such as exponential back-off and dependencies are also standard.
What's New in This Release:
Support for two new platforms: FreeBSD and Microsoft Windows. Solaris 10 support.
Better support for Linux kernel 2.6.
SMTP response time monitoring.
The FILE directive can show diffs when monitored files are modified.
Disk/filesystem throughput measuring on Solaris.
Many more enhancements and bugfixes.
