About Nagios

Nagios is the industry standard network monitoring tool and is the best of breed Open Source application in its field. Nagios enables you to be pro-active about system maintenance so that you no longer have to rely on support calls from users to alert you to network or server issues.

Nagios monitors most standard network services and system resources out of the box and owing to the unparalleled number of third party service checks and a thriving extension ecosystem, it can monitor more or less any data source running on any platform.

As Open Source software, Nagios offers unrivaled flexibility and represents a cost-effective replacement for proprietary network monitoring systems such as CiscoWorks, HP OpenView, Tivoli and Solarwinds Orion. Why buy an inflexible, off-the-shelf product when a solution fully customised to your network environment can be implemented significantly cheaper?
