@TheAdmin Do you or anyone else know of any good free server monitoring softwares? i need ones that can work locally inside an intranet

@TheAdmin Can they run on machines that cannot access the outside internet? i have several that are firewalled away for internal use only.

@antiphon @TheAdmin at work we use a commercial tool (big $$$) which is excellent, on machines with no access from the outside deep inside well protected AWS private VPCs. But like most monitoring tools, we install an ‘agent’ on each machine. The agent gathers the stats and squirts the data out to the monitoring home. So as long as your machines can talk outwards on certain IP ports, you should be able get monitoring on an external site. Most monitoring works this way.
