    Which might be exactly the problem here.

    A (metric) ton of Google hits usually contains 999.999 kilograms of forum postings advising you to use Google, telling you that you really don’t want what you are asking for, and similar useless drivel, effectively hiding the one gram of information you are looking for.

    I’ve gone off the idea of Google. It’s overrated.

  • When saying something like that it’s good to mention a few examples of the search terms you’re using–too often, people say I googled, and it didn’t work, but didn’t really google.

    I would try using the article at the CentOS wiki on nagios–even though it’s dated, it’s still one of the best docs on nagios (which generally has horrible docs, at least it did when I set it up years ago).

    See how far you get with that.

    I’m assuming that generally, using the mail command on your machine works. If it doesn’t, then notifications won’t work either.

  • Ah, that’s not so good. However, seriously, I remember when I was assigned to set up nagios, and until I found Max’s articles, I was at sea myself.

    Squeeze, Beefy, Snow Leopard, Precise–one could make a song out of that–or maybe it’s a good title for a band.
