Topic: Monitoring with Nagios XI

Every computing device should (A) run certain software and (B) be configured a certain way. For instance, a mail server should (A) run mail software such as Postfix and (B) have enough CPU power, RAM, and hard disk space to meet users' needs. A __monitoring server__ watches remote devices to make sure that these conditions are met.

    • Nagios Core** is an open source program that is widely considered an industry standard for monitoring software because of its age and straightforward design. **Nagios XI** is a commercially-supported version of Nagios Core that includes additional features intended for use in enterprise environments.
