The Nagios “addon” – check_mk makes the use of Nagios as a monitoring solution even more appealing. The windows monitoring agent allows tailored custom checks to ensure that the operating system and application subsystems are running correctly. In fact its flexibility is pretty much limited only by what you can think to check.
The current release 1.2.0p3 – really does address a lot of shortcomings that were in the early version and in terms of speed and functionality is a quantum leap forward. If you haven’t seen the tool – take yourself to here. If you are running an older version – run – don’t walk to the site. Install on a testbed and you will see why its worth having.
