I have a running installation of Nagios 3.03 running in a full root zone on Solaris 10.
I monitor several Solaris hosts with
ping -standard config
ssh - active check once / hour
smtp - active check once / hour
(I put ssh and smtp checks to 1 time /hour since they were filling up the
logs with 2 entries per check)
Solaris, even in Single user mode still responds to ping so when the box goes
down for patching I have to look at the 1 hour smtp /ssh checks
Is there a better way to check my “uptimes” other than ping…?
