Monitoring WCF with nagios

Postby RickyReyesmatrina » Wed May 25, 2022 6:48 am


I'm not familiar with Nagios and I'm still half way looking through the plugins and documentation but our client is currently using this and they want to use it to monitor our WCF too. Is there a way for Nagios to consume WCF methods or at least monitor the errors thrown by the WCF?

I've been using Nagios for like 20 years now - it's solid and does the job for sure.. it's cheap (monitoring almost 500 services on a $30/month ubuntu server with OSS Nagios) and we've written 50+ custom plugins for in-depth monitoring... however, it's not super easy for other people to configure and has its learning curve.

Anybody else out there been in a similar situation and had success moving to a more "friendly" monitoring tool? Ideally something that can run Nagios plugins as re-writing every custom plugin would be a bit of a deal omegle shagle voojio breaker for me.

I'd recommend using OMD/Check_MK as it "autoconfigures", supports unix/linux and windows "out of the box", and you can set policy based configuration rules to tweak thresholds, alerting, inclusion/exclusion. On top of that, you get a web GUI to manage it (so less tech savvy users can do configuration without having to write Nagios configuration language).
