Are you a system administrator that handle many server at once? Don’t know how to monitor them? Or may you have monitored them but it takes too much time to open them one by one? Don’t worry, now there is a software that can help you do server monitoring without open them one by one. Just open your favourite web browser and all information about your network and application running on your servers is avalaible there. They called it Nagios. Nagios is the industry standard in enterprise-class system monitoring for good reason. It allows you to gain insight into your network and fix problems before customers know they even exist.

With Nagios, you can do system monitoring not only on computer, but also another device like router, switch, and printer. You can also monitor application, services, or firewall running in your computer. If something terrible happened, Nagios can send you notifications to your email, mobile phone, or instant messaging. Not only that dude, Nagios can perform problem remediation like restart failed applications, give you report in graph view, and have a good integration with Cacti or another RRD based tool. Another good news, Nagios is FREE. You can download it for free from its official site or linux repositories. If you use Ubuntu, you can type this command below to install Nagios into your system : apt-get install nagios3 Don’t forget to install apache too. And wait for my tutorial about setting up Nagios for dummies in the next post.
