EDDIE Tool, the intelligent monitoring tool
The EDDIE Tool is a system monitoring, security and performance analysis agent developed entirely in Python.
Its key features are portability, powerful configuration and ease of expansion.
The EDDIE Tool can perform all basic system monitoring checks, such as:
filesystem; processes; system load; and network configuration. It can also
perform such network monitoring tasks as: ping checks; HTTP checks; POP3 tests;
SNMP queries; RADIUS authentication tests; and customized TCP port checks.
Finally, a few checks lend themselves to security monitoring: watching files
for changes; and scanning logfiles. The EDDIE Tool can also send any collected
statistic to RRD files to be displayed graphically by any standard RRD tool. No
need to run multiple monitoring and data collection agents. Monitoring rules
are just like Python expressions and can be as simple or as complex as needed.
Advanced alert control functionality such as exponential back-off and
dependencies are also standard.
