      collectd
      collectd gathers statistics about the system it is running on and stores this information. Those statistics can then be used to find current performance bottlenecks (i.e. performance analysis) and predict future system load (i.e. capacity planning). Or if you just want pretty graphs of your private server and are fed up with some homegrown solution you're at the right place, too.
      Monit
      It can monitor and manage distributed computer systems, conduct automatic maintenance and repair and execute meaningful causal actions in error situations.

      Why we spent several years building an open source, large-scale metrics alerting system, M3, built for Prometheus:

      By late 2014, all services, infrastructure, and servers at Uber emitted metrics to a Graphite stack that stored them using the Whisper file format in a sharded Carbon cluster. We used Grafana for dashboarding and Nagios for alerting, issuing Graphite threshold checks via source-controlled scripts. While this worked for a while, expanding the Carbon cluster required a manual resharding process and, due to lack of replication, any single node鈥檚 disk failure caused permanent loss of its associated metrics. In short, this solution was not able to meet our needs as the company continued to grow.

      To ensure the scalability of Uber鈥檚 metrics backend, we decided to build out a system that provided fault tolerant metrics ingestion, storage, and querying as a managed platform...

      We use Nagios to monitor our stack and alert us when problems arise. Nagios allows us to monitor every aspect of each of our servers such as running processes, CPU usage, disk usage, and more. This means that as soon as problems arise, we can detect them and call out an engineer to resolve the issues as soon as possible.

      We use Nagios to monitor customer instances of Bridge and proactively alert us about issues like queue sizes, downed services, errors in logs, etc.
