I'm looking for a piece of software (the freer the better!) that could be used to track the CPU/Memory changes on a remote system when I remotely startup a component, and have that software report back to the system I'm running from. The components being run remotely also communicate with components on my system, and if I could track the network status (message exchange rate, etc), that'd be great! Any suggestions? Thanks!

Well, Zenoss does want you want, and is extensible to an extent, with Zenpacks, and is free for Zenoss Core, but I might be mis-understanding your question. (?)

Interesting. Sorry for not being specific enough. I'm basically looking for a product that does two things: 1. monitors the health (ie. latency, bandwidth, etc.) of a DDS network cloud. 2. monitors the CPU/memory usage of a system Obviously, the second isn't a huge deal. But if I could find a product that could do both, it would be great! –  Monster Jul 24 '09 at 13:24

It's not open source, but is it COTS.
Maybe you could try IP Monitor?

Interesting. I'll definitely look into both of those. I'm quite new to this, so I'm not sure how prevalent DDS monitoring is. And really, I don't need anything highly fleshed out. I'll basically be taking the log/dump that is produced, and send it through the processes of the components I'm monitoring to analyze by a higher level program I've also built.
