Hi folks,

infraMon ( http://www.inframon.org ) has arrived as a shareware package.
It provides for many NMS-like features in a modular setting with a focus
on network infrastructure management. Most notable for this list is that
it builds topology maps which can be a slick front-end navigator to
14all/mrtg data (as well as a great topology reference). Here are a few

- Dynamically build network topology maps from a device list (light
weight snmp for link info)
- Map line colors are based on link speed, utilization, or ping response
(from mrtg exports)
- Map lines and devices are hot links to 14all/mrtg data and other
- Pre-builds mrtg configs to include utilization, ifErrors, ifDiscards,
- Capable of DISTRIBUTED response monitoring (remote site to site)
- Preconfigured mrtg thresholds producing alarms
- Generic web based alarm monitor
- Device and link status poller with notification
- Web based Cisco CLI query tools

The components are modular. For example, running of the status poller is
not required to produce mrtg config's and map navigation.

Currently I would like for seasoned network managers (as early adopters)
to give the package a try if interested. It involves a compile of gd and
several perl modules (along with mrtg and rrdtool) and it is *nix based
