which one is better idea, Naios OR Cacti

Postby ghulam yaseen » Mon Apr 13, 2009 9:20 am

Hello All,

I am monitoring some servers using the Cacti and Nagios. I am using Nagios to monitor the services of my servers and Cacti to monitor the bandwidth graphs. Emailing option is present in both but currently email notifications are sent from Cacti.
I prefer using Nagios in case if i can implement the graphs on it.

Nagios is for monitoring services, it will send you alert if one of your specified service is down however Cacti is for graphing like CPU usage, Port Usage and so on.
