Server response-times graph

13 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a windows app to graph server ping response times in real time. Any suggestions?

It is late, and I am trying to keep my eyes open, so forgive me for forgetting the name of the app.

If you are using 2k3 or 2k8 server there is a built in app that does this. Monitor something, or what not.

It is built in, just look it up on Microsoft page or what not.

again sorry for forgetting the name, I will try to remember it.

Solarwinds. Their toolsets are pricey, but they make excellent software and have a fully functional 30-day trial.

A number of the hits on the first page look promising. Did you at least try any of them?

My preference is http://hobbitmon.sourceforge.net/

You can get really funky if you want to, and even monitor things like uptime on flaky switch ports. If you can ping it or monitor with SNMP (I believe this requires the DevMon daemon), Hobbit will draw a graph for you and notify you when things fall outside your pre-determined paramters.

The default list of tests is as follows: (taken from Hobbit page)

conn Simple ping test. Enabled by default, you can disable it by putting "noconn" into bb-hosts.

http Web-server test. Enter the URL to request from the webserver.

ftp FTP server test.

ssh SSH (Secure Shell) server test. Supports ssh1 and ssh2.

telnet Telnet server test.

smtp SMTP (Mail server) test.

pop3 POP-3 test.

imap IMAP test. IMAP version 2 and 4 are supported, for version 3 use "imap3".

nntp NNTP (News) server test.

ldap LDAP (Directory server) test. Enter the full LDAP URI if Hobbit is configured with LDAP support.

rsync rsync server test

bbd Big Brother daemon test. Also works with the Hobbit network daemon.

clamd CLAM anti-virus daemon test.

spamd SpamAssassin anti-spam daemon test.

oratns Oracle TNS listener test. Will attempt to do an oratns "ping".

qmtp QMTP server test. For qmail's qmtpd service.

qmqp QMQP server test. For qmail's qmqpd service.

You can expand this if you build it with OpenSSL support and it can also do RPC services test and a NTP server check. It's highly customizable and a good excuse to learn Perl if you want to get really funky.

if you are going to run hobbit you might as well just run smokeping. Both are based on Tobi Oetiker's excellent RRDTool. It sounds more like the OP is looking for a app he can just install

Cheers I'll have a look at those.

@Ohm

Yeah, I had a look at all of the hits on the first couple of pages. Lots of them are the same thing, and those that I tested either didn't work or didn't give me a nice pretty graph.

Sounds like your thinking of Perfmon.
