Reasons For Choosing XI
Here are just a few reasons we've heard from existing Nagios Admins as to why they're bringing Nagios XI into their infrastructure:
Powerful Nagios Configuration Management
Managing your Nagios configuration is an important task as an administrator. With XI you've got some powerful options on your side. Use the XI configuration wizards, advanced web config interface, or manually-maintained config files to configure Nagios XI. Or mix and match - you've got options.
Native configuration wizards guide users through the process of monitoring new devices, services, and applications without having to understand complex monitoring ideas or modify low-level configuration files.
Advanced Configuration GUI
Nagios XI includes an advanced web config interface with a database backend for easy config management from anywhere. And you still retain the ability to define templates and use inheritance for advanced setups. Awesome!
Manually Maintained Configuration
With XI you can still maintain some or all of your configuration in manually-maintained configuration files. This allows you to integrate custom config-generation methods (such as CVS/SVN exports) with your XI installation.
Importing From Nagios Core
The Nagios XI web config manager includes import functionality, which means its easy to move configuration files from existing Nagios Core installations into XI for easier management.
You don't want your monitoring server to break if someone makes a configuration error. XI makes snapshots of your configuration and automatically rolls back to the most recent last known-good state if it detects a configuration error. Snapshots or errors and problematic configuration files are captured for your to review for later problem resolution.
Nagios XI Components
We designed Nagios XI to utilize some of the most well-known and well-respected Nagios components and addons. Many Nagios shops make use of these tools in their installations, so you may already be familiar with them.
Some of the core Nagios components and addons we include in the XI distribution include:
