    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 have to agree also. We've used Nagios for many years and it's worked great for us.
