If you have the budget, M/Monit is a good option.  If you're like me and you don't have $300 laying around (I use monit on my home machines, not going to pay for those) there are a couple of other options.

If you run Nagios there is a plugin that will query your monit servers.  You can find it at:  I haven't used this much yet, but added it to my Nagios setup to see how it works.

If you feel like writing some code you can query monit for its XML output.  The URL is http://<hostname>:<port>/_status?format=xml.  You can then parse that and display it however you like.

If you go to Monit's website at and download M/Monit it is a good start. M/Monit has a small license fee to help us continue develop Monit and M/Monit though.

So, now that I have monit set up on a bunch of my servers (it's awesome, thanx!) -- how can I view all of that information in a single location?   I've seen munin a bunch, but I'm not sure if that's what I want or not - I haven't really looked very closely at it either.

I'm tempted to just throw up some httpd server up that serves up some static file with a bunch of frames in it that point to my various monit httpd servers -- but that seems a bit hokey and probably not all that practical.

Does anyone have a better solution?
