I just want to take a few minutes to tell you what a great piece of software Argus is. I have looked and tested other open source monitoring applications(cricket/bigbrother/netsaint) and found Argus to be the best in my opinion. Installation and configuration was a breeze on my U60/solaris 8 monitoring station, system load also seems lower than with the other mentioned packages. This thing is exactly what I was looking for.
Thanks for your time and for making such a great piece of code available to the general public.

First things first. Cool project! Thanks for all your effort!

First I like to say that I like you Argus project. I just installed it and after some fiddling it works great, and does exacly what I want.
Kobe Lenjou - publinet.be

First, thanks for writing something that seems to be clean and easy to extend. I have been using Nagios @ work for some time and am anxious to replace it.

Very nice -- we're just starting to test Argus for a small monitoring job, and so far it seems useful. Thanks for your contribution to the open source community.

I own a hosting and this tool has been really cool for my business :)

Argus works excellently. We use it to log data about all traffic through our router so that we can produce bandwidth usage statistics for customers.
Geoff Powell - lanrex.com.au

This looks like a really great piece of monitoring software and it works perfectly with what I have configured (I already had qpage, apache, gd and perl installed for MRTG).
Argus kicks ass!

I have to say.. compliments on Argus. It truly is the worlds most advanced monitoring system.

First off, congrats on a kick ass little app!

I've found Argus to be just the tool that I need to keep an eye on our server facility. I use it to monitor and report on 20 or so machines, monitoring about 200 individual services.

I really like what you're doing with Argus

My team at JP Morgan is evaluating argus for use as a monitoring system to replace our clunky in-house system. So far it looks great
Andrew Crawford - jpmorgan.com

Thanks for creating Argus
Hub Dohmen - dohmen.nl

I check out your app. It looks really good.

I wanted to first let you know how much I love this software. I was really sweating this project I had... to set up monitoring software, but Argus made it a breeze.

We are using Argus in-house at RACQ to monitor our Sun systems and some of the essential network gear. It's darn good.
Joe McKinnon - racq.com.au

Last night I took the time to switch my own network over from Nagios and Demarc to Argus and I have to say "It kicks ass". I don't really have it monitoring everything yet and I haven't even touched the surface of features but within 15-20 minutes I was up and running on FreeBSD versus 2 days for a propper installation of Nagios.
Scott Hiemstra

I installed your program, and i like it ;-)
Honti Miklos - miki.hu

Started using argus a couple of weeks ago -- GREAT software!
Zach Berke - twotacos.com

Argus is a great product, you have all my thanks for the excellent job you did.
Frédéric Laurencin - g-telecom.com

Having Argus has to have been the single best career move yet. 100% uptime is difficult to impossible, but 100% PERCEIVED uptime is entirely possible with Argus. Now I know when a service is down long before the boss does. So customizable, I'm able to monitor damn near anything on any level. Perfect.

Argus is absolutely brilliant. I wasted an entire day playing around with broken, convoluted, piece of crap monitoring daemons, and then I found Argus and all was better. What I liked just as much as Argus was the well-written, informative, and amusing documentation.
Neil Anderson - psiframe.com

i am just getting into argus but i have evaluated, and dumped, a couple other service monitoring apps - and argus looks great.
george donnelly - zettai.net

THANK YOU so much for Argus! I was going bananas for the last 2 days trying to configure Nagios, and I got Argus up and running in less than one hour. I'm testing it on an old Sun Sparc64 running NetBSD 2.0, and it's running just perfect :)
