Complete Network, Service, and System Monitoring
The Industry Standard in IT Infrastructure Monitoring
Nagios XI provides organisations with many benefits, including:
- Comprehensive IT Infrastructure Monitoring: Provides monitoring of all mission-critical infrastructure components – including applications, services, operating systems, network protocols, systems metrics, and network infrastructure. Hundreds of third-party addons provide for monitoring of virtually all in-house applications, services, and systems.
- Visibility: Provides a central view of your entire IT operations network and business processes. Powerful dashboards provide at-a-glance access to powerful monitoring information and third-party data. Views provide users with quick access to the information they find most useful.
- Awareness: Alerts are sent to IT staff, business stakeholders, and end users via email or mobile text messages, providing them with outage details so they can start resolving issues immediately
- Proactive Planning: Automated, integrated trending and capacity planning graphs allow organizations to plan for infrastructure upgrades before outdated systems catch them by surprise.

Nagios provides complete monitoring of Microsoft Windows desktop and server operating systems – including system metrics, service states, process states, performance counters, event logs, applications (IIS, Exchange, etc), and services (Active Directory, DHCP, etc).
Monitoring private services or attributes of a Windows machine requires NSClient++ addon agent to be installed locally on the system. This agent acts as a proxy between the Nagios plugin that does the monitoring and the actual service or attribute of the Windows machine. Without installing an agent on the Windows box, Nagios would be unable to monitor private services or attributes of the Windows box.
- CPU load
- Memory usage
- Disk usage
- Logged in users
- Running processes
- Publicly available services that are provided by Linux servers (HTTP, FTP, SSH, SMTP, etc.) can also be monitored.
Switches and Routers
Monitoring switches and routers can either be easy or more involved – depending on what equipment you have and what you want to monitor.
Switches and routers can be monitored by “pinging” them to determine packet loss, RTA, etc however if the switch supports SNMP, you can monitor port status, etc. with the check_snmpplugin and bandwidth (if you’re using MRTG) with the check_mrtgtraf plugin.
