Nagios (English pronunciation: /ˈnɑːdʒioʊs/) is a popular open source computer system and network monitoring application software. It watches hosts and services which the owner specifies, alerting the owner when things go bad and again when they get better.
Nagios, originally created under the name NetSaint Archived 2008-05-09 at the Wayback Machine, was written and is currently maintained by Ethan Galstad, along with a group of developers actively maintaining both official and unofficial plugins.
