Other projects: opennms, hyperic hq, zabbix, cacti, collectd, ganglia, freenats, etc...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_network_monitoring_systems

which protocol/how to use to automatically register the services with the monitoring system?

which procotol/how to send monitoring data to the system?

for a list of services (apache, postfix, mysql, etc...) what should be measured and reported to the chosen monitoring system by default?

=================
Discussion from UDS Karmic

monitoring service: combination of nagios+munin.

* monitoring integration probe in packages: new package installs triggers monitoring probe integration in the munin agent.
* nagios/munin auto-registration: security issue, accept monitoring nodes.
* system installation integration: question to integrate the system in the monitoring system.
* services that use the monitoring info need more discussions.
* new task to install a monitoring server.
