Ansible Automation


Nagios is the industry standard for enterprise-grade IT infrastructure monitoring. The popularity of Nagios as an IT infrastructure monitoring tool is based on two key traits: tremendous flexibility and virtually unlimited extensibility. There are millions of Nagios installations around the globe monitoring billions of things, including servers, networking equipment, applications, databases, websites, etc.

Network Automation with Nagios + Ansible

Nagios + Ansible integration distributes a Nagios monitoring agent to Linux inventory and then registers that Linux inventory for monitoring with Nagios. The Nagios community has received this well, and it allows users to spin up deployments in hours rather than days. We are currently working on extending integration with Ansible for network automation and configuration management. Also, we are working on playbooks that will auto-configure Linux inventory for syslog forwarding to Nagios Log Server.


The benefit of the integration for Nagios users is fast, automated monitoring deployment for systems, networks, and applications, which saves time and increases reliability.

Ansible users, especially those who use it for network automation, will be able to use Nagios monitoring to make sure they get the right notifications and reports that automation actions have been set off and completed successfully and that backup files are located where they should be, are up to date, and pass integrity checks.
