Nagios experts - a quick question please

Postby nylebreit96 » Sat Sep 04, 2021 9:02 am

So I'm involved in a team that are getting an exiting MSP to deploy Nagios to the environment.

They already use it, but we are getting a brand new instance of our own. The agents already are deployed.

My question is, how long would it take to reconfigure existing agents to the new Nagios server? Is there a simple command, or is it redeploying the agent, and how many can you do per day?

We're being told it is slow, only 5 per day and must be redeployed. Given this will be monitoring a few hundred systems, this is pretty average

Can anyone weigh in please?

Kinda depends on the setup, but you're usually re-deploying or re-configuring the particular agent. With a less secure setup you might be able to just hit it with check_nrpe / check_ncpa (if the token is known) without any additional reconfiguration.

and how many can you do per day?

If you're using Chef/Ansible/Puppet/etc, all of them ;)

Hard to say otherwise.
