GNUCOMO: GNU COmputer MOnitoring

About the project

Welcome to the homepage of Gnucomo, the project to monitor the devices (mostly computers) in your network. The aim of the project is to build a set of applications that will help administrators to monitor networks as a whole for errors, attacks and security-breaches in a very user-friendly way. It resembles an intrusion detection system, but doesn't want to redo the efforts made by other projects. All types of possible entries are used as signals for detection of not normal situations.

The gnucomo mailing-list can be used to ask questions or to join the project.
