Nagios Log Server HA setup

Postby FramJamesgot » Fri Aug 12, 2022 6:04 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 echatspin echatrandom traffic to the 2 hosts?

Am i missing the whole point?

Yes, you should load balance to use multiple NLS hosts, and it's probably best to have a minimum of three NLS hosts.

NXLog can be configured to send the logs it collects to Nagios Log Server.

To see the IP address and ports of the Nagios Log Server instance, open the Configure page and find the Configuration omegle shagle voojio Editor section.
