This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to find a simple solution to monitor all desktop machines of my network (~ 35 Ubuntu desktop). I do not want to use passive monitoring like Munin or Cacti but with an active agent on the desktop, i wish only keep a day or a week of data retention i do not need more.

In fact i plan to use New Relic Server to monitor as my servers. Is there a best way ?
