This article covers how to go about setting up monitoring in Linux using NCPA. You will learn how to configure NCPA to monitor Linux.
NCPA is a cross-platform monitoring agent for Nagios Core and Nagios XI that runs on Windows, Linux/Unix, and Mac OS/X machines. Its features include both active and passive checks, remote management, and a local monitoring interface.
In Nagios XI wizards can be used to to perform configuration of hosts and services through the Web UI. Wizards take the complicated matter of creating hosts and services, defining configuration parameters, assigning contacts, contact groups, hostgroups, servicegroups, etc, into a easy steps form in the Nagios XI UI.
Wizards can also be easily added to Nagios XI through the Admin -> Manage Wizards menu to expand the capabilities of Nagios XI.
