Hi, I am new to Nagios and I am having problem to put all this applications together. I have very limited knowledge of all this tools and availability, so I need experts help on this. Here are the steps that I went thru: I installed Nagios in one of my Linux server. In the same machine but different directory I Installed Nconf to add about 70 hosts with about five services for each hosts. I have to add about 200 more hosts. I used CSV (comma-separated values) file to store the data. Now, I need graph so I installed Nagiosgraph and I am trying to make it work since last two weeks, but it is not working. When I reload nagios, it runs fine and I see the icon to brows to the graph, but when I click on it, I get following error: (Server error! The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there was an error in a CGI script. ) If you think I didn't select right tool to add hosts and for graph, what is better tools to add bunch of servers and to get the graphs. I also have some switches to monitor too. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Use Opsview for managing Nagios. It’s a web based GUI, and handles things like scaling up the Nagios service via clustering. Can add new hosts, new services, via the web, and acknowledge the outage. It also records a historical view of services.

    This is not a solution to your current problem, but a suggestion. There are other monitoring tools that have graphing capabilities out of the box, and are open source too. In case you want to give them a try, I would suggest evaluating Zenoss and Zabbix. Good luck.
