Most compatible Linux version for nagios


Please suggest us which version of Linux is most compatible for Nagios installtion.

We are going to install nagios 3.0.

Also Please suggest the best nagios version for good performance.


works fine on Ubuntu 7.10 Server for me. We have over 217 checks and growing.


i would pick a redhat variant like CentOS, or a debian base like ubuntu, just because both have nice package managers (centos: yum , ubuntu: apt-get) which will have most of the packages you need for nagios and plugins and extras readily available.
