Do you investigate any monitor systems or only those formed as a product 
(with the doc's, install package etc etc). We are using here 
_SNMPSTATD_ (modified from free snmpstatd publised at the SMTINT ftp a 
few years ago, with WWW interface, operator's logging, ticketing and 
prioritising system etc etc - but (1) it likes netscape3 or IE4 but not 
netscape4, then it was documented in Russion, etc - through I have sent 
this system to a few of people over the world, and (2) it's interesting 
question if it's interesting to make normal doc's and installations for 

It can be achieved as or 
STAT.tar.gz, through it's the version configured for the FreeBSD system.

If it's interesting to add this to your list, I can provide any guide for 
those who'd like to check it, just as some demo WWW pages.

// Our task was - to monitor more than 300 - 400 links at the same time 
(for a few dosen of routers), just as switch ports and CPU, with the 
information cards and operational jornals for each object (BGP 
connection, LINK, ROUTER, PORT), sound alarming etc etc... It was 
debugged well fro Netscape-3 because netscape-4 can't work with the big 
tables properly, but it's not problem for us because we can complect 
operator's screens (about 5 screens now and about 5 different networks 
monitored by our technical centre KIAE here) just as we wish...
