Watch one or more Nagios servers on a wall mounted TV (or your desktop)
Here is a TV watching 5 Nagios servers at once:
In server monitoring with Nagios, nobody likes to get paged any more than necessary. This article will show you how to prevent multiple “CHECK_NRPE: Socket timeout after 10 seconds” alerts every time a host goes down.
In this circumstance, I’m not trying to get NRPE working. I’m trying to shut it up when there is an outage.
By default, it is compiled without SSL support. Mac clients will not be able to connect. Here is how you get Netatalk working on Debian or Ubuntu the clean way, with custom compiled packages.
apt-get source netatalk
apt-get install devscripts fakeroot libssl-dev cracklib2-dev
apt-get build-dep netatalk
dpkg -i ../netatalk*.deb
If you get an error message about keysigning (when building), this command may help:
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=ssl dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
Finally took the plunge and got IPv6 working at home. Thanks to the folks at http://www.tunnelbroker.net/ for the free 6to4 tunnel!
