Nagios + Nagvis + Check MK install script


I was working on an install script for Nagios (Working through the bugs) when I found Check_MK’s install script. See

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.

Install Procedure

Download and install Debian 5 Net install:…

Install as normal,

Login as root

#> mkdir nagios

#> wget

#> chmod 777

#> ./

Go through the prompts and thats it, Nagios + Nagvis + Check_MK installed and ready to configure
