Nagios
Hello,

I am currently configuring Nagios to monitor most of our network devices.  Obviously, there are some devices that I would like to monitor with more detail and more closely than others.

I have compiled a list of services that I would like checked for every server, no matter what type.  I am looking for some input from the community on what services I should be monitoring that are specific to each server.  More specifically, what services should I monitor on an Exchange Server as opposed to a DNS Server or a File Server?

 

Any input would be appreciated!

 

Thanks,

-Schmidtw
