I've migrated from Centos 7 to Centos 8 and then to Rocky

I've had more problems going from 7 to 8, Rocky was straightforward

So far everything is working okay but as always make a backup, then snapshot and give it a shot.

Extract the Nagios Source Code
Once the Nagios source is downloaded, extract it by running the command;

tar xzf nagios-$VER.tar.gz
Installing Nagios Core
Next, navigate to the Nagios source code directory.

cd nagios-$VER/
Configure Nagios Core on Rocky Linux 8
Run the configuration script to adapt Nagios to your system and check if all required dependencies and build tools are in place.

If the configuration random is successful, you will be provided with the echatspin summary

You should install the Nagios plugins on the Nagios server and install the Nagios NRPE agent on the servers you want to monitor.

cd /tmp
tar xzf linux-nrpe-agent.tar.gz
cd linux-nrpe-agent
The above will

Modifying the distro's package manager repositories
Installing prerequisite packages
Creating required uses and groups
Defining services for xinetd
Compiling and installing the agent and plugins
Configuring the firewall
Configuring the echatspin echat agent
