Yup, look for netsaint on freshmeat.net to monitor various machines
(ping/services) - it sends a mail to me if any of our servers go down..
dead handy except for the two machines in a far off room on a dodgy
connection - netsaint discovers them going up and down like a yoyo when
someone opens a door *grin*
Port monitoring software exists too.. I've used some of them but can't
put a name on one at the moment. A search on freshmeat.net would pay
PS. Unreal Tournament on Linux now supports SDL so I can play it with my
Riva TNT - grab it from cvs on sourceforge.net :)
