    Nagios is a OS monitoring system

    Random Notes ill clean up later =)[edit]

    This is a list of random notes i am using whilst deploying Nagios in a customer environment, I will clean these up in to a bit of a pholisy later =)

    Check your config[edit]

    before reloading its all ways a good idea to check your config

    [Nagios base directory]/bin/nagios -v [Nagios base directory]/etc/nagios.cfg
    

    eg

    /opt/nagios/bin/nagios -v /opt/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg
    


    Define a new service check for a group[edit]

    this will add a new service check to all hosts in the solaris host group

    define service {
            service_description     if_config
            display_name            if Config
            check_command           check_nrpe!check_ifcfg
            use                     generic-service
            hostgroup_name          solaris
    }
    

    Restarting Nagios[edit]

    After adding a new service check or changing the config in general, you will have to make Nagios reload its config files or restart Nagios. Most times a reload is enough. So:

    /etc/init.d/nagios reload
    

    or, if that doesnt work,

    /etc/init.d/nagios restart
    

    This applies to a Redhat or Debian based Linux distribution. The init scripts might be in other places on different operating systems or distributions.
