I am looking for software (like Nagios) that also can monitor my applications. Is there a software solution that monitors both the servers and the applications on those servers?

  • How do you want to monitor applications? Monitor for what? Just that they are running? Do you want a gratis solution, or do you have a budget in mind? – Mawg Oct 23 '18 at 14:12

    Free preferrably (of course) but will entertain paid solution. Cloud or on prem. Servers and applications (which are mostly Java apps) run on Windows and Red Hat Linux. Just need to see if application succeed or fail or on in progress. – tale852150 Oct 23 '18 at 14:23

    Applications return 0 on successful, anything else is failed. Budget is limited to $1000/year. Yes, this seems to me to be a 'tailored' solution that may need to be developed "in-house". But as an example I gave Nagios, which would work if it only could monitor Java applications. – tale852150 Oct 23 '18 at 14:35

    As far as apps run frequency, how often results checked, etc. The preference is I would like the dashboard to be able to look at my environment at any and all times. – tale852150 Oct 23 '18 at 17:22

    I believe (as Mawg pointed out) that such a product does not yet exist. I’ve only seen products that do one or the other. Thanks for your time everyone – tale852150 Oct 23 '18 at 17:56

Dynatrace is APM and infrastructure monitoring solution. It supports a wide range of technologies (including java related stack). It works both as a SaaS and on-premise

Sadly it is not free, but from my experience is worth the price for big deployments.

    Does this tool live in the cloud or can it be deployed on-prem? – tale852150 Oct 25 '18 at 13:20
  • It provides both flavors. – Gonzalo Matheu Oct 25 '18 at 13:35

After much discussion, the consensus is that such a product does not exist and that it may actually be preferable to develop the product oneself.

    Please also accept your answer (you may have to wait before you can do so), as this will help others in future. Good luck with your app. Personally, I would go with Jenkins & Python. – Mawg Oct 24 '18 at 6:17
