Nagios: Building Enterprise-Grade Monitoring Infrastructures for Systems and Networks (2nd Edition) 2nd Edition

 Consulting and Design with OPENNMS & Nagios Network Management 


Nagios. A pure open source project. Can be downloaded separately or found in Linux distributions from Debian, Fedora, Suse Linux and OpenBSD Unix, as well as Groundwork Monitor (see below). Corbo says it’s targeted at network engineers, requiring some technical expertise before being deployed system. Still, it has an extensive library of monitor plug-ins.

OpenNMS ( Free. Like Nagios, according to Corbo, it needs some work before being integrated into your environment. Support and consulting services can be bought through the North Carolina-based OpenNMS Group . Tarus Balog, that company’s CEO, said the agentless OpenNMS can monitor “hundreds of thousands of devices.” It ships with some 40 monitors and includes escalation alerts and data collection. The goal of Open NMS 1.2 is to compete against HP Network Node Manager, he said, while the upcoming version 1.5 aims to compete against IBM’s NetCool.

  We provide engineering consulting service for Nagios and OpenNMS.

What I am Reading
I am reading Open NMS documentation and Case studies. I am trying to understand how Nagios and or OpenNMS could be used with Openstack cloud computing.
I also plan to explore the RRDtool and the cosmetic flufs.

What I am writing
Creating UML diagram of the Code. Creating user documentation and installing guide. I have to create deployment guide for MCSE types. Need to work on a Power Point type Presentation- Necessary BS.

Lab Works
0.0 Installed NSCA. Every thing works ok, while testing NSCA_send client gave a message that limbcrypt was not available.
It took me one day(12+ Hours) to figure out and rectify the situation, The solutions is with rpmforge of Centos.
