Nagios is a free, open-source suite of monitoring and control software utilities. It can report on failures and recoveries of hosts running Unix-like operating systems -- including Linux -- and the networks they use to communicate. Nagios is compatible with other software products, such as Net-SNMP, an open-source implementation of a manager over the Simple Net Management Protocol. You can install and configure Net-SNMP on your Ubuntu computer running Nagios.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Press the "Ctrl", "Alt" and "F1" keys at the Ubuntu login prompt to bring up a text-mode login prompt. Type your regular user name and password. Ubuntu will present you with a command-line prompt, also called a "shell".

  2. 2

    Grant superuser privileges to the shell by typing the following command:

    sudo -l

    Press "Enter," type your password and press "Enter" again.

  3. 3

    Type the following command to download and install Net-SNMP:

    apt-get install net-snmp net-snmp-utils

    Press "Enter."

  4. 4

    Type the following commands to configure your SNMP manager daemon:

    cd /etc./snmp

    snmpconf -g basic_setup

    Press "Enter" after each line. At that point, Net-SNMP will be up and running on Nagios on your Ubuntu system.
