Nagios agent


I have installed Nagios2 (2.6-2) software on a Debian 4 server (kernel 2.6.18-6, i have made the cfg files for the hosts i have and the web interface all report the same values for the hosts as the localhost (server)
for example

Current Load
Current Users
Total Processes

and so on



Must i install a Nagios2 client on every host i want to monitor?
Thanks in advance.

It depends what you want to monitor. ping, ssh, rpc can all be done without an agent (nrpe) running on the host. Load, disk space etc need an agent

nrpe is the agent I use. There seems to be a good guide here -> http://www.crucialwebhost.com/blog/n...mote-services/
