Hyperic

logo combo open source network monitoring tools

Hyperic’s web infrastructure monitoring and management software automates and streamlines data center operations. HQ helps you reduce operations workload, increase your company’s IT management maturity level, and drive improvements in availability and infrastructure health.

Hyperic offers two versions of its flagship HQ product:

  • Hyperic HQ – Hyperic’s open source offering is licensed under GNU GPL v2.
  • HQ Enterprise – Hyperic’s industrial strength enterprise offering has all the capabilities of the open source version, plus advanced automation and control features for managing web applications at scale. HQ Enterprise is available as a free trial for download from Hyperic under a Commercial License. The enterprise trial is limited to 50 managed platforms, and typically expires within 30 to 45 days.

I installed this… interface is not very slick and is a bit clunky and doesn’t seem to have too many cool features.
