I have 16 hosting servers I need to monitor. I have 2 options and am hoping that I can get some feedback on which way is best.
#1 Dedicate a local box with nagios to monitor these servers?
#2 Install nagios on a vps located in the data center?
I am located in NY and my servers are located in Tampa FL (USA)
The connection here at the office is Time Warner Roadrunner business class broadband.
I am currently adding on about 1 server every 6 weeks so I need to keep future loads in mind as well in my set up.
