Promotional Information

System monitoring makes possible the timely detection of, and reaction to, failures in critical computer systems, thereby introducing much needed dependability in complex computer networks. All organizations have a need for this, but many have been slow to adopt these tools because they have been prohibitively expensive and therefore reserved for large corporations and governments. This book shows organizations of all sizes how to build a low cost, enterprise strength, systems monitoring infrastructure with Nagios, along with crucial 3rd party tools and plug-ins. The organization of the book mirrors the steps involved in building a monitoring framework. Part 1 introduces relevant theory, best practices, and Nagios' implementation of that theory. Part 2 covers installation and configuration. Part 3 focuses entirely on the ins and outs of monitoring various processes on different operating systems. Part 4 covers reporting and visualization. Advanced Nagios functionality and integration with 3rd party tools and software are discussed throughout the book, where appropriate.

About the Author

Dave Josephsen is the senior systems administrator at DBG, where he maintains a geographically dispersed collection of server farms and occasionally puts paper in the printer. Winner of LISA 2004's Best Paper Award and author of numerous articles, he enjoys writing about technology, but admittedly, has more fun solving interesting problems and getting his hands dirty with routers, firewalls, load balancers, and UNIX systems. His interests are too numerous to list; he is quite uncomfortable writing about himself in the third person, and he's having so much fun he can't believe he's being paid. (But he'd prefer that you not mention that last bit to his boss or publishers.)
