I made a presentation at the DENOG3 meeting last week and covered the following Perl-based open-source software products for network management and monitoring:
- Torrus, a well-established and mature software for massive SNMP polling and performance monitoring.
- Gerty, a new project for network automation. Any tasks on the network devices which need any interaction and automation, are targeted by the tool. The first release is expected soon.
- Mooxu, a new project which is currently in its early design phase. The product will provide a platform for distributed network testing and monitoring (eventually it may replace Torrus).
The slideshow PDF is available at the meeting agenda page, and also a video will be available soon.
