I've been playing a little with Nagios to see if I can approximate a replacement for our Solarwinds monitoring that we used to monitor the general state of our WAN.
I've got a basic server setup, and I've added a few hosts using a tutorial I found online. Seems OK, but I don't think editing config files by hand is going to scale up. I know there are autodiscovery and web-based configuration tools for nagios, but it's a little overwhelming trying to figure out what to use.
Anyone have any advice for a nagios newbie?
