This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

I would suggest that you build nagios yourself, otherwise when it comes to configuration, which is about.... 99% of the work, that is where you'll have a problem.
Install Nagios in a CentOS vm, there are various guides on the internet the CentOS mailing list, and the Nagios mailing list are very helpful. In fact, you should be able to get a basic setup up and running in 24 hours, easily.
I would also suggest IRC - in fact, if you really need a hand, I've just done a nagios build, and I can advise you if you like :)
Try opsview community edition VM, it is based on nagios. I have 2 VMs working, one for internal services, other for hosting services.
