I was happy to see an active list on nagios. I need your help. I am a newbie and just started learning Nagios monitoring tool. I have a question.
What should i do for the following problem
Step 1: I have a web server accepting client requests and maintains a counter. Now with nagios i want count(=number of client requests) of that web server after every 1 minute.
Step 2: If that count exceeds some threshold, nagios should monitor and send an email(some response).
So do i need to write some Nagios plugin for step1 to get count information of the web server. Also do i need to write some client application to generate some response(if >threshold).
How should i approach this problem. Also i could able to find Nagios with apache but i faced hard time in finding tutorials for configuring Nagios and iplanet web server for monitoring.
I would be grateful to you if some one would guide me.
Thanks in advance.
