In Detail

Network monitoring requires significantly more than just pinging hosts. This cookbook will help you to comprehensively test your networks' major functions on a regular basis.

"Nagios Core Administration Cookbook" will show you how to use Nagios Core as a monitoring framework that understands the layers and subtleties of the network for intelligent monitoring and notification behaviour.

Nagios Core Administration Guide introduces the reader to methods of extending Nagios Core into a network monitoring solution. The book 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, you will learn that Nagios Core is capable of doing much more than pinging a host or to check if websites respond.

Approach

This book is written in Cookbook style, beginning with recipes based on basic structure which gradually progresses towards using Nagios Core as a monitoring framework.

Who this book is for

This book is for System Administrators who are looking for recipes to help them deal with advanced network monitoring issues with Nagios Core.

    Comments about oreilly Nagios Core Administrators Cookbook:

    I've never really thought of cookbook-like resources as being very helpful to my particular situations. But this book is different!

    I implemented a Nagios Core system almost entirely from scratch with this cookbook. I think it's a fantastic resource for anyone working with Nagios Core to have in their back pocket.
