MoSSHe (MOnitoring with SSH Environment) is a simple, lightweight (both in size and system requirements) server monitoring package designed for secure and in-depth monitoring of a number of typical Internet systems. It was developed to keep the impact on network and performance low, and to use a safe, encrypted connection for in-depth inspection of the system checked. It is not possible to remotely run (more or less arbitrary) commands via the monitoring system, nor is unsafe cleartext SNMP messaging necessary (yet possible). A read-only Web interface makes monitoring and status checks simple (and safe) for admins and helpdesk. Checking scripts are included for remote services (DNS, HTTP, IMAP2, IMAP3, POP3, samba, SMTP, and SNMP) and local systems (disk space, load, CPU temperature, fan speed, free memory, print queue size and activity, processes, RAID status, shells, log file events (logins, restarts, and brute force attacks), and mail queue).
