Nagios monitoring another nagios?



Here’s the deal. I have a huge system to monitor. In this system there is one particular part that I’d like to monitor separately from the rest. So I’d have one primary nagios, that would monitor the entire system (except this particular part), and one secundary nagios (only for this particular part).

Can I somehow connect these two nagios (primary and secundary) together, so that the primary would get the data of what the secondary is controlling or is the monitoring separartely - primary,secundary and the primary works as system on its own and secondary as a system on its own - they don’t know one of another?

thanx in advance.





I found the answer in Wolfgang Barth book Nagios - System and Network monitoring. It’s chapter 13

thanx anyway,
