Ok, newibe nagios’er here. We are planning on implementing nagios to keep an eye on our terminal servers, and our clustered postgreSQL servers. Heres my questions. We will have a few *nix boxes, and a few windows boxes. I would like to monitor the disk status of the nix boxes, and the load and such. I see that there are plugins to monitor the ‘local’ disk size and ‘local’ load, but not remote stuff. I have tried setting them up, and it does seem to only read the local data.
Do i need to run some sort of server on the remote machines to monitor the load/disk status items? I do see that i can do this for the windows boxes, but just wondering how to do it for the linux boxes…
Thanks in advance
