About this Course

In this course you will learn how to set up a Nagios 4 server on both Red Hat based and Ubuntu based Linux servers. For Red Hat and CentOS you will learn to install from both source and from packages. With Ubuntu you will learn how to install from source (there are no packages available for Nagios 4 for Debian based systems).

You will also learn how to connect your Nagios server to both Linux and Windows servers for basic monitoring.

Basic knowledge
  • You should have a solid understanding of the basics of Linux and Windows server administration. You should also have a basic understanding of networking and opening ports in firewalls if needed on your network.
What you will learn
  • You will learn to install Nagios 4 monitoring server on both RedHat/Centos Linux and Debian/Ubuntu based systems. You will learn the basics of setting up monitoring of remote Linux and Windows servers. Once you complete the course you will have a monitoring console that will show health of multiple remote servers.

Introduction
  • Introduction  

    Welcome to my course on setting up Nagios. Nagios is one of the most popular monitoring tools available. It is very versatile. You can monitor pretty much anything that is networked.

Installing Nagios server
  • Install Nagios on Red Hat or Centos from source  

    This lesson covers installing Nagios on Centos from source. The steps used on Centos will also work on Red Hat, Oracle Linux, Amazon Linux machines, and other distros based off Red Hat.

  • Install on Ubuntu from source  

    This lesson covers installation on Ubuntu based distros from source.

  • Setting up NRPE on Nagios server on Centos  

    The most popular way of connecting remote servers to the Nagios server is using NRPE. In this lesson you will learn how to install NRPE on the Nagios server to talk with remote servers.

  • Setting up NRPE on Nagios server on Ubuntu  

    This lesson covers setting up the NRPE transport on your Ubuntu based Nagios server. NRPE will be used to connect with remote computers to monitor them.

  • Creating hostgroups.cfg file  

    This lesson covers the hostgroups.cfg configuration file setup.

Connecting remote servers
  • Connect a Red Hat or Centos server  

    So we set up a Nagios server so that we can monitor remote resources. This lesson covers configuring a remote Centos server to connect with the Nagios server. The steps will work with Red Hat, Oracle Linux, Amazon Linux, and other Linux distributions that are Red Hat based.

  • Connect an Ubuntu server  

    You will need to configure NRPE on Ubuntu servers. This lesson covers configuration of Ubuntu servers for remote monitoring from Nagios. It will work with all Ubuntu based Linux distributions.

  • Set up Windows servers for remote monitoring  

    There is a version of NRPE available for Windows servers. This lesson covers setting up a Windows server for monitoring. It is handled slightly different than Linux.

Bonus Material
  • Using AWS Linux servers  

    You can use Amazon Web Services, AWS, for easily creating machines for practicing new computer skills and setups. This tutorial will cover the basics of setting up a Linux server. You can get a one year trial of AWS for free. Even after your one year trial you will find that building virtual machines is very cheap, especially if you shut down the machines when not in use.

  • Setting up Windows servers on AWS  

    You can use Amazon Web Services, AWS, for easily creating machines for practicing new computer skills and setups. This tutorial will cover the basics of setting up a Windows server. You can get a one year trial of AWS for free. Even after your one year trial you will find that building virtual machines is very cheap, especially if you shut down the machines when not in use.
