You can spend a fortune on a prefabricated, one-size-fits-all network monitoring solution and get nothing for your trouble except hassles and unacceptable network overhead. Or you can use open-source Nagios monitoring tools. You can plan your deployment thoughtfully, using this book. And you can get powerfully positive results for a fraction of what a commercial solution would cost.
David Josephsen has spent seven years building and maintaining monitoring systems. This book brings together everything he's learned -- starting with best practices for designing monitoring systems that won't overwhelm your users or your environment.
Josephsen shares his deep understanding of Nagios's inner workings, protocols, and tools: knowledge you can use to extend Nagios in any direction, whatever your goals or infrastructure. You'll wind up with a monitoring system that doesn't just identify problems but helps you anticipate and avoid them. Bill Camarda, from the April 2007 Read Only
