Nagios is a free, open-source suite of monitoring and control software utilities. It can report on failures and recoveries of hosts running Unix-like operating systems -- including Linux -- and the networks they use to communicate. Nagios is compatible with other software products, such as Net-SNMP, an open-source implementation of a manager over the Simple Net Management Protocol. You can install and configure Net-SNMP on your Ubuntu computer running Nagios.
