Getting Nagios 4 to run on Ubuntu

Like a lot of tech companies, Curve uses Nagios to monitor our systems and notify us of any problems. We recently upgraded to Nagios 4 but had some problems getting it up and running on Ubuntu (Nagios 4 was built using Red Hat Linux) so we came up with the solution ourselves and have open-sourced it so that others can use it.


  1. +1 for getting it working and open sourcing a solution!

    How do you find nagios? How does it stack up to something like new relic?

    1. We love Nagios! Aside from the fact that it's free, the ability to customize monitoring to your specific environment is the main draw for us.

      No plugin to monitor the specific metric you need? Make one! In the coming weeks we're going to be releasing some plugins we've created. Stay tuned.
