Sorry if this is in the wrong area, but I’ve not seen much when it comes go Nagios so I am dropping this here. Feel free to correct me if it is in the wrong area.
We now have our Nagios UCS Member Server set up to monitor our Windows & UCS Servers. Our next project is to monitor our switches and routers. We would LIKE to do this through the UCS Nagios installation instead of a separate Nagios system (the idea of FAN - Fully Automated Nagios Server has been thrown around in planning/engineering.)
Has anyone done this yet, or is currently doing this? Any pointers, suggestions? I know one can pretty much monitor ANYTHING with Nagios once configured right.
I know plug-ins will be needed, but how does one add the device as a “host”, by managed IP or another method?
Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.
