Nagios: howto become a happy network and system monitoring engineer 150 150 Roderick Derks

I’m giving Nagios a try, a very interesting Network Monitor system. It’s pretty cool stuff, but you have to take the time to get to know it. The setup and especially the configuration can get complicated.

The Nagios community is pretty lively and there are a lot of plugins you can download and use. The good thing is that there are a lot possible strategies on how to monitor you network. So, you just have to experiment and find out what you want, where to get it, how to install it and how to set it up. And when you’re finished, boy do you deserve a nice cool glass of beer. Better, do not wait drinking a beer ’till you’re finished, you’ll need it much earlier.
