Nagios forked- Here comes Icinga!!

After the post on Nagios, as a dutiful blogger, I was searching on what is new in Open-source server monitoring systems. Thats when I stumbled upon Icinga.

Icinga is an enterprise grade monitoring system, which forked off from the good-‘ol Nagios. It was known that they are working their brains out on developing something. Curiosity made me dig deeper.


Know thy server- better, cheaper and quicker!

Knowledge is Power. Be it war, peace, administration or day-to-day business, information about any dynamic parameter you are dealing with, adds to your strength. Imagine a day when you are idly playing a video on Youtube, and out of the blue comes a popup screaming – “Dude, you’ve got a problem. MySQL is kinda acting weird, and the server load is leaping over the moon. You better check it right away!!” Aaaah!! Life would have been so much easier! If this is what you have been dreaming about, this is exactly what Nagios can deliver.
