I hope I’m posting in the right place. I don’t have Nagios installed or anything yet (though I have played around with it in the past), as first I want to know if it’s possible to do the following:
[list]There are a number of client sites around town, all of which has existing Windows servers[/list:u]
[list]We’re currently looking for a way to monitor the network at each site, and report on any failures, etc[/list:u]
[list]We would like to have a server at our location that would receive the events, and software installed on the existing Windows Servers in the client locations that would report back to our server. We don’t want to add another server in each location.[/list:u]
[list]Because all of these clients are different companies, having Nagios monitor the network over a VPN link is not an option[/list:u]
Does anyone know if it’s possible to set up a service on a Windows Server that would monitor the internal network (like Nagios does), and then send that information (either through an SNMP Trap or otherwise) out through the internet to the Server at our office running Nagios (or any other Network Monitoring tool)?
Effectively Nagios on our server would be the “Master Monitor,” and would receive information from an Agent on the inside network at each client site.
Thank you for any help you can provide,
