Nagios lets you keep a close eye on your network assets. Computers, web sites, services, disk space, and more. NEMS brings Nagios to the Raspberry Pi 3 micro computer making it more economical, energy efficient, and super easy to deploy... not to mention much easier to use.
Nagios is notoriously difficult to set up, and doesn't need a supercomputer to operate. So I set out to answer both of those issues with the release of NEMS: The Nagios Enterprise Monitoring Server for Raspberry Pi 3!
Deploying a server that will monitor all your other servers, workstations, IoT devices, services and more is as easy as downloading a pre-built image, and this week we'll show you the very basics of how it works, how to configure it, and how to use it to monitor your network.
Jeff was on the co-host desk, and Sasha was in her newsroom.
We had all kinds of difficulties when Sasha's microphone gave up the ghost. We went through our assortment of standby mics, but nothing quite cut it. While I appealed to viewers during the live show to help us replace it, the cast of the show came together and bought two them (one as a backup). So any contributions toward the mics will instead go toward another need. Thanks to Jeff, Kelsey and Sasha for supporting this need. The new mics should arrive at the end of the month, or first week of December.
Thank you for continuing to support Category5 TV. Patreon is a great way to support us and is never a hassle from our perspective. They deposit your monthly contributions directly to our PayPal account. It couldn't be any easier.
Enjoy the show! And if you end up using NEMS in your environment, please let me know! I'd love to hear how it helps you out.
