Any Observium alternative

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if there is any other open source/self hosted tool like Observium for monitoring. The issue with Observium is that is only allows hostname, not IP.

What I need is this:
1. Network monitoring (specially bandwidth)
2. monitor 2 specific port
3. basic server health monitoring

Basically I need something like NixStats, but self hosted. Looking forward to your suggestions.

Thanked by 1rokok

    Thanks, trying it now :)

    Tried it already, while it's not an issue for me, my client won't agree to use it because of how new host has to be added via CLI

    Thanks, looking at it :) Does IP work instead of hostname on it?

  • Icinga2 may be an option as well.

    Yeah, I've got servers on librenms that are tracked either via hostname or ip. You can even track LES-style NAT VPS-s with it easily with proper port numbering/hostnames.

    Example, see the mail.domain.com at the bottom:

  • Not sure when the IP support got added to librenms but it's definitely there in recent versions

  • Does LibreNMS support uptime monitoring now or just SNMP only?

    I believe it does. I don't have notifications/email/etc setup, but I think it's worth it for more technical people like yourself to try out.

    I'm curious why this is an issue. If it is an issue for you, it is - it's your world, so no problem, but I'm just curious why.

    In addition you can use something like nip.io or the hosts file

    Pointing an A record for a lot of sub domain was the reason, well not a very strong reason, but considering the no. of Dedi, it will be a pain. But as @cassa mentioned, nip.io solved this issue, a big thanks to him :)

    nip.io

    Problem solved?

    Edit: Just saw it had already been posted

    Well, it kinda did, but still exploring all the above mentioned alternatives.

    BTW, Happy new year everybody :)

  • @doughmanes likes himself some LibreNMS.

    Thanked by 1doughmanes
  • LibreNMS is pretty good. I got it running on a OVH VPS #1.

    I got Varnish and all that good stuff running on it. It's solid. All I do is monitor graphs mainly.

  • check_mk is cool but maybe overkill
