Learn to develop network monitoring solution using Nagios with Packt's new Book and eBook

January 2013 | Cookbooks, Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce its new title, Nagios Core Administration Cookbook. Written by Tom Ryder, the book will show how to use Nagios Core as a monitoring framework that understands the layers and subtleties of the network for intelligent monitoring and notification behaviour.

The book highlights best practices for managing Nagios Core configuration to make it leaner, more robust, and better suited to programatically generating configuration as specified by other systems. It teaches to use the web interface to control notification behaviour on the fly and for scheduled outages, without restarts. Readers can write clever custom reports of their own devising, by pulling Nagios Core's data into a database.

In this book, readers will learn to find, install and write their own plugins and to reference them as Nagios Core commands for use as host and service checks. Author gives in-depth examples of using the standard set of Nagios Plugins for common network monitoring needs, with discussion of generic methods for monitoring the results of SNMP queries. The book also discusses remote monitoring methods to handle the situations where Nagios Core cannot directly check a service's status over the network .

Nagios Core Administration Cookbook begins by covering the basic structure of hosts, services, and contacts and then goes on to discuss advanced usage of checks and notifications, and configuring intelligent behaviour with network paths and dependencies. The cookbook emphasizes using Nagios Core as an extensible monitoring framework. By the end of the book, readers will learn that Nagios Core is capable of doing much more than pinging a host or to check if websites respond.

This book is for System Administrators who are looking for recipes to help them deal with advanced network monitoring issues with Nagios Core. The book is out now and available from Packt in print and popular e-book formats. Please visit the Packt book page to read more about the book.
