Compiled by Aaron W from Spiceworks, here are 13 free network monitoring tools that will help you detect when your network is down — and hopefully help you prevent it from going down in the first place.
- Microsoft Network Monitor
- Spiceworks Network Monitor
- Spiceworks Connectivity Dashboard
- PRTG Network Monitor
- The Dude
- Zenoss Core
- Pandora FMS
There are definitely more out there, but this is an excellent list of tools Aaron compiled.
