Munin and Nagios

Been mostly busy with my diploma thesis, moving, a bit of WoW and a bit of tinkering.

I've installed Munin yesterday to play around with it and I'm immensely impressed. Muchinteresting information amd set up for master + 3 nodes in ~20min with no former experience. From reading the docs, the Debian/Ubuntu packaging maybe played a bigger part here than with some other packages. Going to let it run for a few days now then I'm trying to make sense of it all.

I've also dug a bit deeper into Nagios, but the configuration format is much less attracting. Then again the tools are only slightly related and it would probably be best to let Munin report to Nagios, we'll see if that's to be done anytime soon.


Life's a bitch, life's a whore. Nothing less, nothing more.
