    I was wondering if anyone knew of any computer monitoring software
    that might be worth looking at. I am currently using BMC Patrol
    which leaves a lot to be desired in terms of reliability and support.
    I have a lot of experience with HP Openview which does not meet my
    business needs.

    Requirements:

    Agent based, ideally runs as a mortal user, not root.
    Server piece runs on UNIX, ideally Linux
    Features and User Interface similar to HP OVO or BMC Patrol
    Reliable event management database, ideally using something like
    mysql
    Has good security features (encryption, proxy, etc) that will make
    monitoring over the Internet feasible.

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
