Nagios Core Review

When compared to earlier versions, it looks like 4.x has lost the statusmap.cgi module.


What is most valuable?

  • Reliability
  • Security
  • Flexibility
  • Functionality
  • Availability - controllability anywhere and with different methods

What needs improvement?

When compared to earlier versions, it looks like 4.x has lost the statusmap.cgi module.

Update April 2016:

I have fixed the problem with statusmap.cgi by upgrading to version 4.1.1. In the old version this module had not been compiled.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for six years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I have had no problems deploying it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I currently do not need to scale on my network.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I only have the free version, which does not have customer service.

Technical Support:

I only have the free version, which does not have technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use Cisco ASA and MySQL devices alongside Nagios as our network infrastructure needs expanding and required more serious hardware solutions.

What was our ROI?

I believe it is hard to calculate for hardware.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I only use the free version.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

  • Amanda
  • Cacti
  • Zabbix
  • Icinga (after installation).

What other advice do I have?

As a rule, any device upon delivery is obsolete. Pick up the solution for your business, based on your specific needs.

Hi Artur, Nagios Core 4 still has the statusmap.cgi, both legacy and a newer, better(in my opinion) status map. If your install doesn't for any reason you can reach out to Nagios for help. Thanks for the review :)
