System for monitoring servers and networks

Xymon is a system for monitoring servers and networks. It has a great deal of inspiration from the Big Brother monitor, but unlike Big Brother it is designed to work well whether you need to monitor small network with just a handful of hosts, or large networks with thousands of hosts.

Xymon is the successor to the bbgen toolkit, which has been available as an add-on to Big Brother since late 2002. The name change was decided upon when Xymon acquired enough functionality to be a stand-alone product. The tools that formed the bbgen toolkit are still present in Xymon and are quite important for it, so if you have used bbgen before, Xymon will seem quite familiar.

This is the server.
