Nagios Best Practise

Postby Wizkids » Wed Mar 16, 2011 3:55 am

Hi all!


I have installed Nagios on my network, and i have some "noob" questions for you all..

I would like to get some Best practise information about the setup, i would like to have a list of different kinds of server types such as:

Web Server:
-
-
-
-
Exchange Server:
-
-
-
etc:
-
-
-
etc:
-
-
-

___________

In thoose lists i would like to have the things that should be monitored, for example...

The best way to monitor an exchange server :

Exchange Server:
- Disk Space (C:)
- CPU Load (%)
- Memory Usage (%)
__________________

something like that, soo when i setup an new server in my network i just look upon this list and see what type of server it is, and then BAM! i know what to setup via Nagios...

Can some of you maybe write me one "list" / "best practise" back ? That would be AWESOME!

Thanks! :)

"Best practices" are pretty relative, I guess I'd start with the default set of checks that ship with the NSClient++ agent for monitoring a windows box. This will allow you to monitor all system metrics (CPU, RAM, DISK, and uptime). This is usually a good place to start.
