Nagios Log Server HA setup

Postby AkinBredailik » Wed Oct 05, 2022 3:20 am

Hoping to try and find some answers for setting up Nagios Log Server in a HA config.

I have spun up 2 servers and installed Nagios log server on each and configured the cluster. Now this is where things fall apart, when configuring a client with our log server we run the commands to tell the server what logs to send to Nagios Log server and the ip address of the log server.

Say we setup the client to point to host 1 and host 1 dies the client will not know to start sending logs to host 2, am I missing something here?

Should we be setting up a load balancer to direct traffic to the 2 hosts?

Am i missing the whole point?

Any feedback would be great as my company didn't purchase support so I don't have access to the Nagios support forums.

Yes, you should have a load balancer to send logs to only one of the hosts.
You probably want to have at least three log servers if you want to have redundant system.
