Nagios Core - Setup and Configuration
Our existing Zenoss server is being phased out, so we're looking to implement a new monitoring server with Nagios Core.
**You do NOT need to add every single piece of equipment for us, but keep in mind the time frame you quote for!**
Hate to be blunt, but some people don't understand this;
Do NOT submit a proposal if you have not setup a 'Nagios Core' monitoring server from scratch before.
We look to your advice and professional knowledge to guide this project's progression! If you haven't done this before you'll be wasting your time and ours.
Once you are rewarded the project, you are responsible for telling us which Linux and Nagios Core versions you wish to work with on this.
Keeping in contact throughout the project is a must.
(With the Freelancer mobile application being available, there are no excuses we can't communicate daily.)
The devices to be monitored will need to be divided by category. Basic categories to begin with are fine. All of our devices are SNMP 1 or 2. Below are the sample device categories and services we expect per device type.
Device & Services;
- Cameras (Ping)
- Radios (dBm, Jitter, RSSi, & Ping)
- Routers (CPU, Interface, RAM, & Ping)
- Servers (CPU, Disk Space, I/O, Interface, RAM, & Ping)
- Switches (CPU, Interface, RAM, & Ping)
Below is a list of products we currently use. It's a short list, so please read it. If you do not feel as though you can support the devices below, then please read up on them or refrain from submitting a proposal.
Manufacturers we use;
- Cambium (Radios)
- Cisco (Routers & Switches)
- Linux (Servers)
- Mikrotik (Routers & Switches)
- Motorola (Radios)
- Ubiquity (Radios)
- Windows (Servers)
Wherever applicable, we desire real time and/or historical graphing. Based off of your opinion and knowledge, we'll be able to discuss the application of this request. However, the absence of graphical monitoring is not an option unfortunately.
Since we're an ISP and MSP, you can rest assured that there is future work waiting if you can professionally perform the base setup as directed above.
We look forward to your proposals.
