Argus Monitoring System

Argus is a system and network monitoring application. It will monitor nearly anything you ask it to monitor (TCP + UDP applications, IP connectivity, SNMP OIDS, etc). It presents a clean, easy-to-view Web interface. It can send alerts numerous ways (such as via pager) and can automatically escalate if someone falls asleep.

simple but not very effective. good for mid-range netwroks.

HTTP Anti Virus Proxy

HAVP (HTTP Anti Virus Proxy) is a proxy which scans downloads for viruses with ClamAV, F-Prot, or Kaspersky. The main aims are continuous, non-blocking downloads and smooth scanning of dynamic and password protected HTTP traffic. It can be used with squid or standalone, and it also supports transparent proxy mode.

anybody test it? any news or problem? going to test it on squid asap !

NOC list

it is really strange if somebody in Iran face to a network problem that must be solve by a real NOC. however if any time you faced such a problem, you can take a look at this list – Network Operations Centers List -. you should find which one you are using , and then just contact them and hope to somebody responsible answer the phone !

one of the largest NOC is Global NOC located at Indiana University. it is managing extra large networks and systems like Internet2, iGrid and iVDGL.

SYDI – Simplifying Network Documentation

SYDI is a collection of scripts to help people get started with the documentation process. What it can do is to collect information from a Windows Server (SYDI-Server) or a MS SQL Server (SYDI-SQL) or an Microsoft Exchange Organization (SYDI-Exchange) and present its findings in a MS Word document or an XML document. On the Linux side SYDI-Linux writes output to XML which can be converted to Html or the OASIS OpenDocument format.

I have just test it for windows ( XP / 2k3 ) and Linux ( RH / Debian ) and MS SQL. it seems very useful !
