Chef-Nagios-OpenStack combination


#1

Hi everybody

My name is Jasna. I am a newbie considering Chef. Today I did setup for
Nagios3-core on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS server not with Chef but via apt-get…
That is simpler. Also, it offers simpler interface.

What I would like is to know how to setup Nagios with Chef but with
OpenStack not Amazon AWS

I found a nice tutorial of yours
http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Nagios+Quick+Start its just that I
would like to see how is that possible on other platforms (already
mentioned OpenStack), that would also include different credentials…

If you could provide some details/help around Nagios-Chef-OpenStack I would
appreciate it a lot.

Thank you for your time,

Jasna

Jasna,

Nagios can definitely be setup on Openstack. The QuickStart guide was written for a very old version of the Nagios cookbook and is not very accurate anymore. I’d suggest not trying to use that until it gets updated for the new cookbook. Start by reading the cookbook readme file. It’s very detailed and might be enough to get you started. If you still have questions shoot me an email at tsmith84@gmail.com and I’ll see if I ca get you rolling.

Thanks Tim for informations.

I went through readme and it is the same as opscode tutorial. Would you be
so kind to provide me some link around OpenStack/Nagios/Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
setup? As mentioned, readme file is outdated.

Thanks,

J.
