About Nagios / Nagios XI
Nagios is an open-source monitoring system designed with core components to run on Linux and monitor devices running Linux, Windows, and Unix operating systems. The VictorOps and Nagios integration provides an avenue for monitoring, alerting, and collaborative incident response for nearly any server or service.

The VictorOps and Nagios integration supports both Nagios Core and Nagios XI. Integrating Nagios and VictorOps allows teams to monitor and alert on their entire infrastructure, whether it be cloud, virtual, and/or 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. Nagios can provide the data and feed alerts into the VictorOps timeline where issues can be responded to.
The VictorOps and Nagios integration is configurable with a simple self-generated service API key in the VictorOps integrations settings. 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 call routing, native chat, phone, email, and SMS.
Get the most out of your Nagios Alerts
- Easily configure Nagios by generating a service API key within VictorOps
- Configure Nagios to send alerts straight into 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 alerts are not 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 configuration is disabled by default, but can be enabled at any point
