EDDIE-Tool 0.33 has just been released. http://eddie-tool.net/
What is it ? The EDDIE-Tool is an intelligent UNIX monitoring agent written entirely in Python. It provides system, network and security monitoring features, with an extensive configuration facility for defining customized monitoring and data collection rules.
What is new ? Support for two new platforms: OpenBSD and Darwin/OS X. Consider support for these platforms as beta - we still need plenty of testing, so volunteers would be great. Some other major updates are: Fine-grained HTTP timing; Configurable HTTP request timeouts (using Python 2.3+); Directive checktime parameter to specify exact times of day or days of week to perform tests; MySQL monitoring; and SNMP support for 64-bit counters.
Why is it interesting to Python users ? Besides system and network administrators, Python users may find EDDIE-Tool interesting as it is an example of a threaded, multi-platform software package, providing easy access to system statistics and using Python's power to offer a dynamic and programmable rules engine.
