    Great info. Thank you!
    I work for an ISP and we used to use Nagios. Very powerful monitoring tool.
    Lately we migrated to Zenoss though. In my 6 month experience with Zenoss, I have to admit that I find it much more advanced and flexible than Nagios.
    Maybe in the future you could also give us some tips and tricks for Zenoss.

    I’d also have to agree with Ryu. For anyone thinking about using Nagios perhaps also take a look at Zenoss before deciding. The Nagios interface is a little more light weight than Zenoss, but Zenoss has some nice features (such as google maps integration) and all the configuration is done through the web interface out of the box.

    Thanks for this article. I’ve been using Nagios at work for some time now (would probably be using Zenoss but can’t be bothered migrating across) but was never aware of the vast range of configuration software available.

    HAHA, Zenoss is a eyecandy for amateur SysAdmins.

    Unstable daemons.
    No subtle configuration( Delicate Check Scheduling, Scheduled Downtime, esclation, service dependency etc.. )
    Hard to customize.(SNMP dependent, Uses crappy dying Zope framework.)
    Partialy Commercial.
    Unverified in large infra.(over 1000~ servers, you can’t monitor them without clustering :b )

    I did everything like what is told to do in this tutor but I can’t seem to get it work.

    I’ve got the problem with PEAR modules upgrade.
    When I click on Y > It looks for the update non stop and there’s is nothing uptodate.
    I don’t think it’s the reason of the proxy directly activated on the firewall, is it?

    anyone’s got an idea?

    Thanks in advance

    The brand page becomes a touching off point much like conducting a search, although perhaps more controlled.

  6. James says:

    It’s pretty lame that Nagios doesn’t natively provide features to configure the application itself. This is why I’ll not be using it.
