- Support for an architecture with leaf nodes and a whole system
aggregator to reduce the number of false alerms due to network blips.
- Our services are built on the best in breed monitoring
solution in the FOSS world: Nagios version 3 (see the Nagios Homepage or the the Nagios
- The LinuxForce Systems Monitoring configuration system provides a 50- to
100-fold simplification in the configuration of Nagios. Our configuration
system provides the following improvements over stock Nagios:
- It simplifies configuring most Nagios objects including Hosts, Host
Dependencies, Host Escalations, Host Groups, Services, Service Groups,
Service Dependencies, Service Escalations, Contacts, Contact Groups,
Commands, and Extended Host Information.
- It automatically configures most service dependencies.
- It simplifies the specification of the network topology and their
- In addition to the basic Nagios plug-ins, our service can provide
more than 150 extra tests to monitor such services as web sites,
PostgreSQL, MySQL, Asterisk (both SIP (Session Initiation Protocol)
and IAX (Inter Asterisk eXchange)), ClamAV, Mailman, and even MythTV.
- Automatically provides Host, Service, and Network based views of
- It simplifies NRPE (Nagios Remote Plug-in Executor) management by
automatically pushing changes to each NRPE client (NRPE allows clients to
run local tests such as disk, memory, cpu, system load, and other usage
tests, plus tests to ensure critical processes are running, etc.).
- The LinuxForce Systems Monitoring configuration system automatically
pushes configurations from the aggregator to the leaf nodes.
- When a monitoring configuration is changed our infrastructure
automatically checks the syntax for errors before it restarts the Nagios
service using a robust script that we have battle tested.
- Support to manage Nagios's Contacts and Contact Groups objects
