Hello all,

I have been tasked with finding a free way to monitor remote sites, Is there a way I can setup Nagios to monitor the status of a site. Send a email alert when a site goes down and send a status alert once a at noon letting us know that the site is up.

Basically a up down status of remote locations. Is there a document explaining what is needed to set all things up and how to configure the things are not needed.

Can you ping the remote hosts, or see a port open?
You can define a host in nagios and create a host check that pings it, for example.
