Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

View Poll Results: Network Monitoring Application of the Year
Icinga, on the other hand, is in my opinion merely a feature bloat with a weird interface. They have some interesting ideas though - have to give them that - but I would put my money on op5 Monitor any day. Been using it for a couple of years and it just rocks! Beautiful and clean interface like nothing else and with merlin you can pretty much scale it anyway you want. (And I am NOT affiliated with op5 in any way - just love the product and what I can do with it).
Yes, it has a price tag - but so does XI and a lot of other solutions.
You get what you pay for - less problems.
if it's about the money - get opsview.
for my personal enjoyment in both development and deployment for free - icinga.
I am with Cooper Bussmann Wireless and we researched several tools to find the best product in the market that can be used as the basis for our new Network Management System. We needed a tool that can easily be expanded to incorporate wireless services as well. Nagios stood apart from anything we found. It's flexibility to create and add new plugins, its scalability, robustness, large feature set and full control over its web application. On top of that it has a very agile User Group and Support Group. We are very pleased with the Nagios XI product.
