The primary use case of this solution is for surveillance for some of the servers for our clients.

Icinga was created as a fork of the Nagios monitoring system. They are similar in graphics and other features, but most who have used Nagios have changed over to Icinga. It was deployed using our enterprise application to monitor different services.

At this time we use Icinga to just do basic monitoring of our existing infrastructure. We are using SNMP Traps in all devices in addition so that when anything happens on the device it sends an SNMP alert. We can use this solution online or it can send us an email as well. We started troubleshooting that issue as soon as we saw it. Icinga has a reactive approach. I think the solution is forewarning us but we are looking for some solution which can take a proactive initiative as well. For example, if the CPU is going too high or the net visualization is less than 90%, we should get information about such situations so that we can take actions accordingly to fix the problem.
