My first post here, so please… be gentle!
First of all, I’m a Nagios/Linux Newbie, but thought I’d take a dive into this world to see what it’s all about! I have Nagios installed on Mandriva Linux, and it’s working great! I’m currently using Active Service scans to monitor a few servers (Dell Poweredge Novell based), a Series of Ethernet switches, printers, etc. I’m ready to play with Passive scans!
I’ve been looking to see if there is a way that I can monitor 200+ Dell Workstations for problems like Thermal Alerts, Pagefaults, and even Chassis Intrusions. Before I continue to bang my head against wall further, I thought I’d better ask if this is possible? I’ve read some articles on having Nagios handle Dell Openmanage Traps, and have been reading what I could find on NC_Net/NSCA but I still can’t figure out if these will do what I’m looking for!
If anyone could give me a yes or no answer, I would appreciate it! And, if what I’m looking for is possible, if you could point me in the right direction I would greatly appriciate it!
