Kindly share some 3rd party application or tool which is certified with RHEL. Red Hat Guru 4674 points 30 December 2011 7:34 AM Sadique Puthen Tools that are shipped with Red Hat are supported by Red Hat. Mrtg and rrdtool (only in rhel6) are some of them which need snmp listening on all entities that need to be monitored. You may need SNMP for almost all third party monitoring tools to work as expected and RHEL includes it. Red Hat do not certify third party monitoring tools. There are many and I have personally used Nagios and Cacti and was very happy with its performance and robustness.

A statistics gathering system like MRTG or Cacti? A local statistics tool like dstat? It's tough to offer suggestions without knowing what you are looking for. di Active Contributor 280 points 3 January 2012 10:32 AM dinesh1.singh Customer is looking for any tool like "Manage Engine OpManager 8" for RHEL.
