UTAS Network Monitor

Network Monitor tracking all essential student services (email, print servers, file servers, internet connection). Status is reported on a publicly accessible web page using a “traffic light” setup.

Creating the Network Monitor

  • Installation of Linux/Apache server software with distribution of Netsaint (now called Nagios), a network monitoring tool already being used at University of Tasmania.
  • CGI Front End uses integration with API for network monitoring tool
  • Primarily used by Helpdesk and General Student population.
  • Tool used for reporting services that are useful to students but pose no threat to security of IT infrastructure.
  • Site created using CSS and W3C standards for easier accessibility.
  • Url location: http://monitor.utas.edu.au (only accessible inside the firewall)
