Nagios Monitoring & Management

Nagios is a popular open source monitoring solution which evolved from the NetSaint network monitoring project. Hyperic includes a specialized plugin which is capable of providing a seamless migration of an entire Nagios environment by providing full support for Nagios plugins. Hyperic customers have successfully transitioned from Nagios to Hyperic's deeper management capabilities and easier deployment. Many have identified Nagios' complex and time consuming setup and limited features as a main reason to migrate their management solution to Hyperic.

Customers can easily leverage their Nagios investment through Hyperic's automatic discovery and integration of entire Nagios environments. The Nagios integration capability in Hyperic collects response code from Nagios invocations as well as any text based output that a Nagios plugin would report. This gives administrators the confidence that the work put into configuring Nagios will be leveraged and complimented by Hyperic.
