A nice solid Nagios introduction a la Nostarch Press
70+ plugins described !!
The book (in a typical Nostarch style) gives a clear, concise rundown about Nagios in general. As such it is a well written and sound introduction to the Nagios topic.
After having read Nostarch*s Nagios book you will know exactly how Nagios works inside. The thorough explanations, flow charts and many tips and tricks leave no doubt that after you finished the book you know your way around any Nagios installation.
What is remarkable is, that even though the Nagios topic is fairly young, the authors manage to describe more than 70+ plugins. !!
One of the features of this book was for me basically a new level of "Usability" - or should I say "reading quality" ? The text contains virtually "links" to related or refered to sections in other chapters. That allows the reader to quickly jump back and forth to follow up on something.
A BIG time-saver and from my point of view much ppreciated.
Beginners or junior system administrators will find Nostarch's Nagios book an excellent choice. It doesnt come with all the latest bells and whistles but it certainly covers more than 80% of what the average joe sysadmin needs to know.
