Dear ladies and gentlemen,

momentanely I´am working on a concept for monitoring tools which compares 
some montitoring tools in regard of the requirements of our company.

(1) Open Source Solution
(2) Big community is available
(3) Documentation is at a high quality
(4) Tool is easy to operate
(5) The Tool configuration is easy
(6) HMI configuration is easy
(7) Background pictures can be implementet
(8) Support of SNMP v1,v2,v3
(9) It is possible to call scripts (shell scripts, perl scripts and so on)
(10) Definition of roles possible
(11) Processing of Traps possible
(12) Tool shall be extendable
(13) Longtime-monitoring shall be possible.

Please can you checkmark these items?

I create a list with a lot of features for the tools but unfortunately 
have some open points also for your tool BigSister.

So I would ask you if you can make checkmarks to the open features if your 
tool will fulfill the features.
Here they are:

1.      Alert-Form (mail, SMS, pager,?.)
2.      History of generated Status changes displayable/archieveable
3.      Logging and Display of Performance data
4.      Protocolls (snmp, ssh,?)
5.      HW support like VMWare, Cisco, Juniper, F5, Veritas, Nortel, EMC, 
6.      Support of geographic network maps
7.      redundancy by starting multiple instances possible
8.      Real-time diagnosis
9.      Local tests by installing application on a client
10.     history and reports
11.     flexibility: Def. of alarm thresholds and warning, HMI adaptable
12.     User management
13.     longterm monitoring
14.     Availibility report
15.     Virtualisation possible
16.     Templates available
17.     XML-Data-Import / Export
18.     Application load distribution on multiple hosts
19.     Integration of failure and performance monitoring
