Inca is a user-level monitoring tool that has been used successfully in cyberinfrastructure (CI) projects such as the TeraGrid and other similar projects. Its flexible architecture enables multiple types of functionality and performance data to easily be collected about the systems it is monitoring. A unique centralized monitoring configuration approach makes Inca easy to setup and maintain on multiple systems and lends to consistent monitoring results.
