I need your help to source some free or VERY cheap solution for the health monitoring of Linux and VM systems and also – inclusive of, hopefully, Oracle databases, etc.

Could you describe a little bit more what you expect from "health"?  Specific processes running, SMART drive status, database integrity?

I don't have more information at the moment ... Waiting for customer 



I would say 

  • Uptime \ Crash \ Reboot
  • Processes Running
  • Network PING \ RTT \ Packet Loss \ Jitter
  • CPU \ RAM \ HDD utilization 
  • CPU \ RAM \ HDD failure
  • DB > Everything if possible  


This is what a friend suggested ? He recommends Zabbix ? 


Zabbix                   -              http://www.zabbix.com/product.php

Nagios XI             -              https://www.nagios.com/products/nagios-xi/

We use Nagios and that's what i recommend.

Icinga is a Nagios fork with a nice web  interface.


i've heard Zabbix is not that easy to configure. (never used it)

i hope that helps.
