Does Nagios Monitor OSS Applications



I am new to Nagios, and have set up my server with Nagios XI.

I am monitoring some of the Windows servers and other network devices in my company.

I would like to know if it possible to monitor Applications (OSS apps or other general Apps) deployed on different servers in my company? I want to know if there are any plugins available to do the same and the procedure to be followed.

Eg: I have an OSS App running on a Apache Server or a Windows Server, and the application crashes abruptly. I want to capture this problem in nagios. How do I achieve this?

Any help will be appreciated.

OSS - Telecom Operational Support System


I use Nagios-WSC for this purpose in house. It works wonders for monitoring windows services. Not sure how much work you want to put into it though. There are some prebuilt queries but I found them to be rather limited so I put together a couple custom WMI queries. For what you need the inbuit processes check should do what you desire.
