NagiosPi v1.1 released. Updated Download Link for new version above.

*Installed Postfix for internal e-mail notifications
*Fixed notify by mail command paths
*Updated RaspControl Image on landing Page

Since the image hasn't garnered as much attention as I thought it would, I'll be postponing any further updates/version releases until such a time when there is general interest shown in the image. If you have any feedback / ideas for future releases or on improving the image - please let me know!

~Cheers

Hi, i think this is a great project thanks for putting it together. I opted to follow the link you provided to build for myself. This is just what I was looking for to monitor servers at a non-profit I work with.

Thanks for taking the time to post and supporting NagiosPi! I'm glad to hear that you found the "do-it-yourself" instructions useful. If you don't mind me asking though, what was the reason you opted to build it from scratch? ( So I can improve the image going forward! )

Hi Ryan,

this is interesting, I've ordered another SD card so I can test.
Just out of curiosity, have you done any capacity testing? So lets say we have a mixed enviro of 60 Windows/Linux/Mac servers (various versions), 50 switches mainly Cisco plus various others, 10 routers (Cisco & Juniper), both legacy and VoiP telephony systems ... I'm sure a "normal" install of Nagios can more than cope but was wondering what your experience of this was, if you came across any limitations on a Pi, etc ?

Thanks
Chas

Chas,

Awesome - please let me know how it goes for you.

I haven't done any extensive capacity testing, just maybe 20 servers or so. It actually performed surprisingly well - all things considered. I've seen people comment who just have the nagios 3 base install say that they tested it with over 100 alerts and it held up just fine - though I can't personally attest to this claim.

Probably not much help - but I'd definitely love to hear how it holds up in your testing.

~Cheers
Ryan

What needs to be done to be able to notify public e mail addresses in gmail domain or other public domain?

I assume you've already tried running a command line test?

Code: Select all

echo "hello there" | /usr/bin/mail -s subject [email protected]
If the command-line entry doesn't work ( and it probably won't ) - Setting up a linux machine to be able to send e-mail to an external/public source can be "involved" is probably the best word for it.

I would check Nagios documentation on how to setup e-mail notifications for external/public e-mail addresses.

For what it's worth, This Post looks promising ( end of first page )

Everytime I start the download it download 90% of it and after I get "Unkonw network error", I tried with different browser and different internet access and different OS same result.

Hmmm.. That's no good!

I don't currently have an alternative, but I suppose I can try moving it to dropbox...give me a few mins.

Hi,

the Raspcontrol always states that nagios3 stopped (in stead of running).

This is incorrect because Nagios works and nagios3 is running.

Anybody has the same problem?

What can I do to correct it?

I was unaware of this... I will have to fix this in the next version. Thanks for letting me know!

Didn't get a chance to check this out this weekend - Will put it on my to do list though!

Thanks for the offer, but I don't have any donate options setup at the moment. If you are interested in contributing, sharing bugs/fixes here is all that I ask :)

For what it's worth I updated the image over the weekend and fixed permission errors with nagvis, reduced the image size and did a bit of additional testing on other users reported issue. All open/reported bugs or errors should now be resolved.

Well except for this one... To be honest I forgot to write this one down when I was updating the image. I suspect it's simply a permission issue with the raspcontrol user, but i am still investigating.

Update:
It would appear that raspcontrol has since been discontinued. The website is gone, authors github page (and account) for that matter now lead to 404's. With all traces of raspcontrol now gone - this might just have to stay as is until raspcontrol is replaced with something else.

I looked into the problem myself (with my limited understanding of how raspcontrol works) and couldn't find an easy solution here.

Another update to the raspcontrol issue...

It seems that the command responsible for returning the results to raspcontrol for service status is displaying nagios3 as up!

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/sbin/service --status-all
Relevant Files:

Code: Select all

/var/www/raspcontrol/lib/services.php
/var/www/raspcontrol/pages/services.php
As far as I can tell, it is displaying as "UP" using the service --status-all command and should be displaying as running in the raspcontrol interface....I just don't get it. I'm afraid that this is probably a little bit beyond me at this point as I don't understand the raid array functions that are being used in these .php files. Ussually something like this would be handed off to the developer and reported as a bug...but in this case the developer is MIA. If you are really adamant about getting this resolved - I would recommend submitting this bug report to one of the forks!

I've gone ahead and submitted a bug report to one of the forks @ https://github.com/harmon25/raspcontrol/issues

But with no updates and several open issues still - I doubt it will be resolved. Not sure what else I can do at this point....

If anyone has any suggestions for alternatives to raspcontrol, please include a link to be considered for future versions.
