Hey guys. I am looking to implement Nagios across multiple networks. All are separated by the internet. Here is the plan:
- Main (Central) Server here at HQ
- Dummy server at each location
I am looking to use NSCA on the dummy servers to make it an easy drop in and no need to worry about the firewalls at the locations. My main question is, what is needed on the dummy server? Can I get away with just installing the NSCA clients on the dummy boxes, or do I need a full copy of Nagios running as well? The central server needs to be able to watch all the networks at once, which I know it can easily do. I am just worried about the dummy box setup. Documentation on NSCA is pretty hard to find as well. Thanks for the help.
