Nagios is a powerful open source SNMP Monitoring solution. It monitors the availability and resource consumption of most devices in your IT system.
PerformanceVision can provide added value to Nagios by providing an end-to-end tracking and performance measurement of all activities going through the network. Nagios can integrate PerformanceVision's data to trigger alerts on performance indicators such as end user response times, server processing times, network latency, etc...
Nagios is a powerful tool to easily monitor IT network and servers. It can alert on availability issue, software or hardware problems. But it’s much harder to alert on “End User Response Times” or response time degradation.
With the help of the SNMP module of your Securactive Performance Vision probes, you can add new check on Nagios to perform this and other advanced checks.
You can find a step-by-step guide to integrate Performance Vision data into Nagios, here: http://www.performancevision.com/uploads/UG-HTML/appendix/cacti.html?highlight=nagios
SecurActive provides a Nagios script to make the integration easier; you can find it here:
