Nagios - Enterprise Monitoring
Nagios is the definitive industry Standard for enterprise monitoring. It facilitates a proactive response by administrators before problems are noticed and escalated by users. It provides an insightful view of the network, individual hosts and associated services.
Nagios is an open source monitoring tool in which ITD Unix Services has developed a strong competence. Deploying Nagios is as simple as contacting the ITD Helpdesk to request a service ticket. One of Unix Service's staff will work with you to help determine your monitoring needs and the best way to implement Nagios for your environment.
Nagios provides comprehensive network monitoring for a variety of systems and architectures:
Nagios provides notifications and visual insights by delivering notifications immediately via email, pager or mobile phone. Notifications are configurable by individual or group, and can be designed with escalations to alert up the chain of responsibility when there is no response to a notification
Reporting tools within Nagios allow for availability reports based on Service Level Agreements (SLA). Alert and notification history informs as to who and what received notifications, and when. Trending reports will show outage information over time.
Further information about Nagios is available from the project's web site at http://www.nagios.org/.
