How to monitor cpu utilisation


i need to monitor the cpu utilisation and disk usage of remote servers running linuz/solaris/windows

i have figured out the windows part i.e. using the nsclient
but how do i configure the monitoring of cpu and filesystem of the linux and solaris servers.

appreciate it very much

99.95% of my checks are now passive checks. I install a mini naigos setup on the remote 'nix type systems and they report back the data via nsca. Use check_load and check_disk on the remote 'nix system’s. You could also schedule a cronjob to run a script, if you dont want to setup nagios on the remote sites.

Hi, I’ve downloaded the nrpe add-on and when i try to compile at the Sun Sparc9 box, the following is displayed:
checking for a BSD-compatible install… ./install-sh -c
checking build system type… sparc-sun-solaris2.9
checking host system type… sparc-sun-solaris2.9
checking for gcc… no
checking for cc… no
checking for cc… no
checking for cl… no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log’ for more details.

can anyone help me because i’m not that good at Solaris.

appreciate any help

you can get a free gcc at I think. There are also the free gcc included on the cd roms.
