Monitor server load, memory, and temprature

Hi,

How can i use nagios to monitor the cpu and memory load, and tempreature of a linux server?

Hi robert.

Just read the nagios docs for more information. Your question is a little bit vague. You need to install the Nagios and then configured it to monitor what you want. =)

Try looking in the libexec directory and type ./check_whatever --help for each and every one of them. They will ALL tell you what syntax to use, and what the plugin is used for.
My guess would be that
check_load in the nagios/libexec directory
check_mem.pl in the ~/src/nagios-plugins-1.4/contrib directory would be a good one to try out.
