- Nagios server best practices? 5 answers
I have installed Nagios on my network, and I have some beginner questions.
I would like to get some "best practice" information about the following types of server:
- Web Server
- Exchange Server
- Database Server
From the list above I would like to know the resources that should be monitored. For example, what are the preferred checks to monitor an exchange server, I initially thought of these :
- Disk Space (C:)
- CPU Load (%)
- Memory Usage (%)
I'd like to compile a list of these so that when I add a new server to my network I know what checks I should add (in essence a set of templates) depending on the server type.
To further clarify, I am not asking HOW to configure Nagios, but what are some best practices and typical checks I should choose for different types of server.
