My nagios installations always include nagios/pnp4nagios/ndoutils. So far, I have always downloaded the packages from the developers, compiled, configured and installed them. And it generally worked.
Now, I realised that Nagios, pnp4nagios and ndoutils-mysql exist in the repositories (for CentOS, maybe others).
I thought this would make installing vastly easier, since I wouldn’t have to configure too much or do much modifying of ownerships or the like, but I haven’t seen any tutorial or user reports on this method. What are the advantages/disadvantages?
Wouldn’t installing nagios with those components end up being one line of “yum install …” ? (<— a good thing).
