Turn Your Raspberry Pi into a Network Monitoring Tool #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Monitor your network on a Raspberry Pi using Nagios. via makeuseof.com
Whether you want to keep an eye on devices on your home network or wish to monitor the performance of your website, the open source Nagios monitoring tool should be your first port of call. Although you’ll need a Linux box, the Nagios software is quick to install and straightforward to configure. But, it’s a bit of a waste of a PC. Having a full system setup and dedicated to checking whether other devices have gone offline wastes space, power and hardware. Fortunately, we have a solution to this, in the shape of the Raspberry Pi, the compact British-built mini-computer that has proved itself to be incredibly versatile since its release in 2012. So popular, in fact, that a new version, the Raspberry Pi 2 has been released in 2015.
