    Nagios Core VM Needed

    I'm currently doing some testing and don't have time to setup a full Nagios VM. Since Nagios has now split into 3 forms, Nagios XI (a commercial supported version), Nagios Fusion (a cut-down version of XI as far as I can tell) and Nagios Core (the 'free' version) I want to take a look at Core. Does anyone know of a fully configured and ready to play virtual machine for this (VMWare or VirtualBox for preferance) I can download?

    Not VM's though. That is the core software for install. I can see why people love The Dude and Spiceworks.
    My next challenge is Open NMS!

    Take a look at Homepage of Zabbix :: An Enterprise-Class Open Source Distributed Monitoring Solution

    IMHO better then nagios and has a virtual appliance download

    Cheers. I'm working on an overview document artical, similar to the art packages one for free netwrok monitoring software, so that helps a lot actually
    The problem I have with the more industrial Linux based packages is that often they take a great deal of time and effort to 'get right', and I simply don't have the time.

    I've had it running here for about a month - the only fidderly bit was to adjust the load settings and max number of processes. As on our webserver which also runs squid/dansguardian they tend to spawn multiple processes for each one meaning the warning goes off (nice annoying noise!) becuase there are too many processes.

    Also every morning when the computers boot the linux box which has fog's tftp boot on it warns that the load is too high as we wake up 500 machines at once!

    I've done a fair bit with the Nagios monitor on Ubuntu server, monitoring a bunch of Linux and Windows servers.

    It's working as a polling system, with NRPE agents running on the monitored servers, but I failed miserably trying to get SNMP traps to work.

    I can let you have my /etc directories if that's any good to you.

    Is that with Nagios Core? If so, yes please. Do you want some IP details to pre-configure it?

    I thought the Nagios Core had some functionality taken out of it from the original nagios? or is it now that the new Nagios packages have added features?

    Yes, but you have to pay for it. I'm looking at free network monitoring tools for this article.
    Annoyingly, the Nagios Core VM on the DVD does not have a username or password for the webmin!
