I would recommend Icinga. It's an open-source solution. It's quite easy, it's simple to use. Checks can be run with Python code, and Shell Script code. Overall, we like it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

If you have a small infrastructure or a small number of devices that you want to monitor, then I think it's a good solution. If you have a lot of devices or an enterprise level installation that you want to monitor, I don't think that this solution can be entertained. I've been in IT infrastructure support for the last 15 years and I have not seen such a solution which has this very basic level of monitoring. I would rate it a four out of ten.

This solution has a self-healing handler where if the service is down, it is automatically restarted.

It is relatively inexpensive and may be okay if you are a smaller organization concerned with the price more than the utility.
