I was just checking Astiostech’s climate monitoring device and tried googling a couple of tools where i don’t need to sign into my Nagios server page everytime. I then bumped into this tool for Firefox called NagiosChecker. The plugin works with FF 1.5 and up. By far, one of the most useful one, for those using Nagios as their monitoring solution.
- Enter a name
- Enter the URL of your nagios main website (normally like http://www.server.com/nagios or http://10.10.1.1/nagios). Use HTTPS where possible.
- If you have nagios V1 check that box that say “Nagios Version Older than 2.0”
- The status.cgi file location. Use the convention http://yourservernagios/cgi-bin/status.cgi where you should replace yourserver to the appropriate name or IP. Use https where possible. NOTE:, Set URL manually took too long so i decided to enter it manually. Therefore, you need to check that box if you wish to enter the status.cgi location.
- Click OK and see Nagios alerts immediately. Of course, if there’s no issues, nothing will be displayed.
