Hi Bruno,

Snort and Nagios are not comparable. Because they both have different
functions. Snort is an IDS (Intrusion Detection System) and Nagios is a
network monitoring system. You can check systems and ports if they are up
and running.

Regards,

Joop.

I advice to look at:
http://www.snort.org/
http://www.nagios.org/
