HI, I'm newbye for linux and nagios :o, but I have to monotorize a lan.
I followed the documents to intall this software but i find a little of problems to configure it. (nagios 2.02b +pluging 1.4)
I don't understand the real differences between services.cfg and checkcommands.cfg. :?:
Well, I belive to comprise that I have to specify the exact sintax of command that i use to check in checkcommands.cfg and more general declaration of in in services.cfg.
I'm not sure of it, I belive that if i understand the logical of nagios everything will be more simple. 8)
Moreover I image that user, when he use web interface, uses cgi.cfg file that interrogates nagios.cfg.
This get information from others *.cfg files. Can someone confirme me what I understand? :?
In order to return to real problem to begin with nagios I want to check PING and hard disk usage.
How have I to procede? Have I to define each control in services.cfg and checkcommands.cfg both or ...?I have very dubs about the use of these files.
