Nagios is an enterprise network monitoring software suite that allows administrators to monitor and analyse their network's activity and performance. Nagios natively supports routers that make use of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). This means that you can simply provide the IP address and authentication information of the SNMP devices and Nagios will automatically configure itself to work with the router.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Log in to the Nagios administrative panel. By default this is located at port 4773 of your Nagios server and can be accessed from your browser.

  2. 2

    Click "Network Devices."

  3. 3

    Click "Add SNMP Device."

  4. 4

    Enter the IP address of a router as well as your user name and password on the router. Click "Save & Apply." Nagios will now automatically begin displaying data from your SMMP router.
