System Monitoring tools

By rmarinuccijr ·
I need to find a free, safe open source system monitoring tool that I can use in our lab environment. I was looking at Nagios but saw that it was for *NIX machines and my lab is 99% Windows Server build. Can I still use this or do I have to have a *NIX box? If so, are there any free system monitoring tools for Windows machines? I have the capacity to build a *NIX machine if need be as the main server for this, but didnt want to if I didnt have to. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Take a look at Spiceworks

and see if that will do what you need.

I've ServersAlive in the past and it's worked pretty well.

I like Overseer

It's only free for 2 resources which is lame in that no one monitors just two things, but even the 50 resources version is only $50.

I have 14 servers and by the time you only monitor the mission critical, I haven't gone over the 50 resources version.
