Installing Nagios on CentOS 4.x/5.x

This document will breeze through installing and configuring everything necessary to get Nagios up and running. This will not touch in detail on the actual configuration directives Nagios uses. For that, documentation is readily available from the Nagios website, or available locally after Nagios is installed. I’ll be explaining installation through RPMs and yum from Dag’s repo (RPMforge), but source is available if you prefer to build your own. Again, documentation for this is readily available. Please see the third-party Repositories section of the CentOS wiki in you don’t already know how to enable repos. This also assumes you already have a working e-mail server in your existing network as well. That’s how notifications will get sent, and that’s beyond the scope of this.
