    Ganglia is monitoring and trending.
    Nagios is health checking and alerting.
    There are also many other tools, like Cacti, for example. Very similar functionality to Ganglia,
    It all depends on what kind of information you need to get.

    HDP uses Ganglia/Nagios combination.

    Thank you!
