Popular agents/clients for windows server 2003 32 bit


#1

Hello,

I wanted to know what are the popular agents/clients for windows server 2003 32 bit. (with/without sp1)
I found 2 clients so far:

sourceforge.net/projects/nc-net
Windows monitoring agent for nagios. performas both Passive and active checks, as well as WMI checks, and external script running.
Full local or remote configuration. Uses Net Framework 2.0

sourceforge.net/projects/nscplus
NSClient++ is a windows service that allows performance metrics to be gathered by Nagios (and possibly other monitoring tools).
It is an attempt to create a NSClient and NRPE compatible but yet extendable performance service for windows.

What would you recommend to use with Windows Server 2003?

Btw, I found the following thread regarding 64 bit:
meulie.net/portal_plugins/fo … 11747.post

Thanks in advance,
Zest

Hello!

I don’t know nc-net, but I’ve already used NSC++, which is a really good client.
I’ve installed it a quite a few windows installations (XP, 2000, 2003) with different releases, and it has almost always worked directly (note the “almost”, as we are talking about windows ;)).

So go for NSC++:)
