Projects / Nagios


Nagios (formerly Netsaint) is a daemon written in C that is designed to monitor networked hosts and services. It has the ability to notify contacts (via email, pager or other methods) when problems arise and are resolved. Host and service checks are performed by external "plugins", making it easy to write custom checks in your language of choice. Several CGIs are included in order to allow you to view the current and historical status via a Web browser, and a WAP interface is also provided to allow you to acknowlege problems and disable notifications from an internet-ready cellphone.

            Nagios overview

            We have nagios boxes at several different locations, and we want to set-up a box to view the status of all our nagios boxes.

            I know we can just go to the webaddress of nagios to view the status. But is there any way we can get all the boxes in one single interface?

            That would be really nice :D
