KVM and XEN monitor


Hi all,

I am responsible for the monitoring architecture in my company and I wanted to improve the quality of our current VM environment.
We are using XEN but in a couple of months we should pass to KVM

I found a nice plugin to monitor KVM from Red Hat (nagios-virt tool) but, apparently, it works only in localhost.

I was looking for a plugin that, also via nrpe, could be executed to monitor remote VMs, do you know anyone?

Same thing for XEN.

Thank you very much,


if it works on localhost with nrpe, nsca, check_by_ssh or whatever method you like you can run it on the remote host… or am i missing something? :slight_smile:
