network monitoring, reporting, and graphing
What is Netmrg ?
NetMRG is a tool for network monitoring, reporting, and
graphing. Based on RRDTOOL, the best of open source graphing
systems, NetMRG is capable of creating graphs of any parameter
of your network.
PHP, Version >= 4.1
MySQL, Version >= 3.23
RRDTOOL, Version >= 1.0.28
libxml2, Version >= 2.30
gcc/g++/libstdc++, Version >= 3.2
Versions earlier than this may compile just fine, but may
experience runtime issues. Specifically, we experienced software
crashes on an SMP machine running version 2.96 that were
resolved by upgrading to 3.2.
NET/UCD-SNMP, Version >= 4.2.2
NetMRG tries its best to distinguish itself from other network
monitors; here's a few ways we're trying to do that:
Slide Show (global, per-group) w/ auto-scroll - allows you to
see an entire device's graphs without doing anything, then move
onto the next device.
Graph Templates - reduce the amount of work you do to add new
Events, Responses, and Notifications - get notified when key
items in your network behave oddly.
Workday Highlighting - so you can tell when your customers are
commonly in-office and when things are out-of-norm.
Several methods to gather information: SNMP, [My]SQL, or Scripts
(use your favourite language)
Updater tool - very little admin interaction is required to stay
current with NetMRG
If you want to configure snmp you need to configure snmpd.conf
file located at /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf check
here for example configuration files.
Installing Netmrg in Debian
#apt-get install netmrg
This will start the netmrg installation at the time of
installation it will prompt you for some important questions
about how do you want to setup netmrg in your system.
After completing this installation process you can access your
netmrg using the following
Important Note:- Default
Username and Password for netmrg is username as

nimda. Once you logged in using
these details you need to change the password immediately for
Now you need to add your Server or Device to monitor with the
required services you want to monitor.
