Observium alternatives due to polling intervals

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/networking

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • checkmk

    Checkmk - Best-in-class infrastructure & application monitoring

    We monitor ~3500 servers and network devices. Web: https://checkmk.com/

  • snmpcollector

    A full featured Generic SNMP data collector with Web Administration Interface for InfluxDB

    At least a demo can be done with snmpcollector + influxdb (+ Grafana?). I think it allows faster polling, however if I recall, the polling interval is always configured in the measurement template itself.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • tools

    Specifically for JunOS, I wrote a special config that limits the number of metrics and breaks things up to avoid slowness.

  • snmp_exporter

    SNMP Exporter for Prometheus

    I also recommend reading this discussion thread for JunOS.

  • smokeping_prober

    Prometheus style smokeping

    Oh, shameless plug for my smokeping prober tool. You can run continuous 1s pings and it will produce stats. Useful for end-to-end tests of network paths. IMO it's better than the original smokeping, because it sends a stream of pings, rather than bursts.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
