I have NAGIOS up and running smoothly on a FC4 box and I am doing basic connectivity checks for different services on a various range of OS levels.
I have Windows / *nix (Solaris, RHES, FreeBSD, Fedora Core 3/4, and CentOS). I have been able to setup the nsclient on the Windows servers to monitor disks space, services, etc without any issues.
My question is, how are you guys effectively monitoring those same things on your open source boxes? NPRE? If so, what is the best implementation? I haven’t found any solid documentation on how to configure NPRE on a client server and be able to check the objects above from the main NAGIOS box.
Thanks for any input,
