Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm just wondering whether monit has an API, which we could poll-regularly (perhaps something that is http-based) ?

It would be very useful to create an integrated monitoring solution across multiple servers. Or perhaps there is no other option other than m/monit?

What is your final purpose? How about this mmonit.com/wiki/MMonit/HTTP-API? –  quanta Sep 26 '12 at 7:20
I'm looking for open-source alternatives other than m/monit.. –  giosakti Sep 26 '12 at 10:43
You really need to give a bit more detail about what exactly you want to monitor and how, since there are a LOT of server monitoring tools out there besides Monit. If you have looked over a few of these and none of them meet your needs then you must be doing something unusual, and need to say so. –  dunxd Oct 5 '12 at 23:20
