The statistics on system management are alarming – 30% of all break-ins come through systems people have lost track of, 90% of all organizations have failures of services they aren’t monitoring, 80% of all organizations are unable to keep their systems in compliance after getting them there initially, and 30% admit that they rarely start monitoring until after they have a problem, 18% of all systems are doing nothing useful, and admins of larger sites often don’t know the inter-dependencies between systems, services, and switches.

The Open Source Assimilation Project has created system management software to help you deal with these problems by creating and keeping up to date a detailed graph database describing everything in your environment, and driving audits, monitoring, and security policies from it in a way that scales like nothing else.
