How should I use Nagios
Close monitoring of a server is essential to maximize its availability and deal with minor problems before they become major problems. RPI's Nagios system allows for automatic monitoring of a server's details (everything from basic network connectivity to disk space usage) with notification emails sent out in the event of a problem.
In addition, Nagios is monitored 24×7 by the ITI Operations department. In the event that problems are detected, manual intervention can be taken at any time.
