People of Nagios - What do you think is the best configuration GUI for V3.x


Hi to all,
I've been using nagios for quite a while now, and i've always stuck to set-up all using the cfg files directly, creating my own and adding what ever i need. But i think this is probably more time consuming above having a nagios administration GUI do it for me. (Perhaps on occasions there are things that these GUIs still can't do and you have to revert to editing cfg files directly but thats no problem)

I was just wondering what people here at linux questions do. If you have used several of the different available GUIs to let me know which you thought was the best. I've considering having a mixture, ie nagios admin or nagiosQL with nagios notification (or is it contacts, i can't remmeber). But i've chosen that as i would expect a GUI built specifically for arranging contacts etc would be very useful and advanced for all the contacts features and then to also make use of a nagios admin or QL for its features in specifically setting up host and service files + commands def's etc.

Just wondering what people think is the best if they have tried various as i can see there's a few out there.

Cheers,
MJ

I am using Zenoss at work and I am very impressed. I believe that it is using nagios as the backend. But so far it has done everything I need it to do. Here is the link if you want to take a quick peek at it.

Thanks for hte reply, but i'm looking more for direct add-ons to nagios. I have been previously aware of Zenoss but I think Nagios is more configurable. You are correct in saying it uses nagios as part of its backend.

If any other comments on the decent plugins?

I've tried several and although i picked it ages ago and have been using ever since... it seem pretty darn good and i'm using NagiosQL as the admin GUI. It seems to be the best available from the several of them available. So i'd say go with NagiosQL

I would suggest you to use Groundworks as frontend to nagios even though it is a bit complex.
I am completely impressed by groundwork.
