I was working on an install script for Nagios (Working through the bugs) when I found Check_MK’s install script. See http://mathias-kettner.de/check_mk
Anyway its a much cleaner & tested script that works great and includes Check_MK
Check_mk adopts a new a approach for collecting data from operating systems and network components. It obsoletes NRPE, check_by_ssh, NSClient and check_snmp. It has many benefits, the most important of which are:
- Significant reduction of CPU usage on the Nagios host.
- Automatic inventory of items to be checked on hosts.
The larger your Nagios installation is, the more important get these points. In fact check_mk enables you to implement a monitoring environment exceeding 20.000 checks/min on the first hand.
Download and install Debian 5 Net install:
Install as normal,
Login as root
#> mkdir nagios
#> chmod 777 install_nagios-1.1.7i1.sh
Go through the prompts and thats it, Nagios + Nagvis + Check_MK installed and ready to configure
