Leverage the power of VictorOps in both Nagios Core and Nagios XI. Integrating Nagios and VictorOps allows teams to monitor their entire infrastructure from cloud, virtual, and physical IT environments.
Nagios periodically checks on critical parameters of application, network, and server resources. It can monitor—for example—memory usage, disk usage, microprocessor load, log files, and the quantity of currently running processes. Nagios can also monitor services such as Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3), Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and other common network protocols.
Based on the parameters and thresholds defined, Nagios can send alerts if critical levels are reached. These notifications can be sent to the appropriate teams in VictorOps through multiple channels including live chat, phone, email, and text message.
Get the most out of your Nagios Alerts
- Forward Nagios alerts straight to VictorOps. If a service goes critical, an alert will quickly notify the appropriate teams.
- Send heartbeat info to VictorOps to help determine whether your plugin is working correctly, even if there are no alerts being generated by Nagios. This integration allows you to collect info and generate alerts in VictorOps, even if your Nagios server seems to be malfunctioning or down
- Use VictorOps to execute Ack-Back Command Poll commands on your Nagios server. Commands issued at VictorOps will be relayed to your Nagios monitor. This service is disabled by default, but can be enabled at any point
