Hi all

Does anyone have any experiences to relate with Nagios monitoring software? Is it a good fit with Cpanel? Does it lessen the amount of time you spend in downtime / troubleshooting? (i.e does it give good ROI for the time you spent setting it up?)

Comments much appreciated.

Works great, it can monitor everything if you set it up that way. For things like cPanel/WHM it can do a TCP health check. You probably can even make it login to cPanel but I have not tried that.

It is very quick to show you the problems, if any, that exist on your network.

We use nagios and I know at least 1 other large management company that uses it for monitoring all of the servers.

I recommend Zabbix as its more accurate and provides much better flexibility with alerts customization.

Both Nagios and Zabbix have open source versions. Zabbix needs an agent running on the server to do a lot of things. I would not suggest running Zabbit or Nagios on the cPanel server, run it on a VPS. If the cPanel server goes down, so will your monitoring.
