    Default Nagios on 11.1?

    Does anyone know of a good tutorial for installing and configuring Nagios on OpenSuSE 11.x?

    I highly recommend deploying GroundworkOpensource.

    A few years ago, I distributed via torrent a VMware virtual appliance of Groundworkopensource 5.01 built on OpenSuSE 11.1. I don't know if you can find it, if you really want it and can't get it otherwise, I can send it to you... Although it works great, it's somewhat out of date.
    Since then, there has been a major rGroundwork re-design architecturally and haven't kept up personally.
    I'm pretty sure there should be more up to date VMware appliances others have created in the past year.

    Groundworkopensource is one of a few web frontends to Nagios that greatly streamlines and enhances Nagios. Although Nagios is unparalleled in network monitoring capability, it's hamstrung by its hoary design which cannot be updated, but these web based enahanced interfaces typically use modern technologies to extend features like data collection, search, reporting, more using modern technologies (like a RDMS).

    Also, these web based tools typically contain check building tools which can do in minutes what commonly requires about a week using only basic Nagios.

    Although GroundworkOpensource has some tutorials of their own, I also created some simple PPT presentations on creating checks and specifically how to build checks monitoring Windows (sure wish it was as easy to monitor Linux).

    Good luck and have fun monitoring,
    Tony
