Usenix, a systems administration user group, and Zenoss, an open source systems management vendor, recently completed a survey on open source systems management software use between 2006 and 2009. Respondents were attendees of the organization's Large Installation System Administrators conference. Nearly all respondents use or plan to use open source systems management tools, with many shops turning to Nagios, Cacti, Zabbix, GroundWork and the OpenNMS project. When asked "What are the top areas where you plan to use open source systems management tools?" 90% answered monitoring, around 60% said configuration and around 50% said patch management.
