Nagios

    Hi All,

    Looking for links to some good nagios resources,

    I've never used it before but would like to get to know the application inside out! we have a small inhouse installation which monitors some essential servers and network resources but its really just used for email notifications etc.

    I would like to push it up to a 42 inch screen and get a full NOC map displayed, I know this is basic enough, so am looking for some suggestions on what else people are using their nagios for.

    Please be aware I'm a total noob here but very eager to get my head around it. Thanks

    There's a handy nagios add-on for firefox so you can be alerted from the browser!

    It's called NagiosChecker.

    The firefox addon? No.
    Or Nagios in General? To be honest I used it on one project but I didn't set it up... but to my knowledge it was fairly straight forward. We used it to monitor a network of 40+, linux based, ePOS terminals across the UK & Ireland. It was a couple of years ago but I believe we just ensured there was a connection from each store & that certain services were running; a webserver, a local postgresql database server & a JMS Service (MQ queue).
