New monitoring for standard environments

From some time now we have started using a “monitoring distribution”.
It uses passive monitoring where it can be used, and has lots of plugins for standard services.

It gives you a nice output, check it out:



Credit has to be given to
All you need to know is here =>

To install the FULL pack you just need to do the following:

# where to start =>

rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh ""
yum update
yum install omd-1.10
omd create monit
yum install check-mk-agent
omd create lab

After this, you can go to your server http://server/monit/ with user omdadmin and password omd , and you will find yourself adding machines to the monitoring.

The agents can be found on the server itself, at the /opt/omd/sites/monit/share/agents/ directory (I may misspell but is arround that )
