Nagios is an open-source cluster monitoring tool. MapR can generate a Nagios Object Definition File that describes the nodes in the cluster and the services running on each. You can generate the file using the MapR Control System or the nagios generate command, then save the file in the proper location in your Nagios environment.

  • MapR recommends Nagios version 3.3.1 and version 1.4.15 of the plugins.

To generate a Nagios file using the MapR Control System:

  1. In the Navigation pane, click Nagios.
  2. Copy and paste the output, and save as the appropriate Object Definition File in your Nagios environment.

For more information, see the Nagios documentation.
