New to Nagios and wanting to expand its use with your own custom plugins? This presentation will show you how to write your own plugins and integrate it into Nagios. View on Slideshare

This session will cover how to achieve high availability and disaster recovery on Linux/Unix systems using DRBD9, Linux HA, Pacemaker, and Heartbeat. Integration with Nagios will also be discussed.

This session will discuss how to debug malfunctioning plugins, show real life situations in which the plugin does not behave as expected and how to troubleshoot and resolve the issue. The session will also cover some basic security best practices and the potential issues that may arise when creating a secured setup.

In this session, John will show how some care and forethought in planning your environment, and a few simple tools, can make building and maintaining your monitoring configurations simple and (mostly) automatic.

Lee will present how he overcame timeperiod issues, through the use of MK_Livestatus, Pushbullet, and scripts to notify of him of alerts while he is at work. All the user needs to do is execute a command at the start of their shift, and they will receive all their notifications until their shift ends. View on Slideshare

In this session, Marcelo will describe how Nagios can be integrated and extended for the monitoring of a typical power-based converged infrastructure, and how it interfaces with existing element managers to provide a single point of integration for passive and active monitoring purposes.
