We have now released a CentOS 6 version of Nagios XI in the Amazon Ec2 for cloud monitoring. The new release is build on the x86_64 architecture and will be the standard for future builds.
In case you missed the announcement from Amazon, all instance sized can now be spun up with 64 bit images. This is a great step forward as it allows someone to start with a small instance at a much reduced price and as they grow they can take their same snapshot an start it up on a much larger system.
More information about running your Nagios XI system in the cloud can be found in our Nagios on Ec2 article in the Nagios Exchange.
Many customers, especially the ones running large environments, have been asking us what is the best way to clone a host along with its services. We have a great tool called “Bulk Host Import Wizard” which does just that.
You can learn more about this wizard by reading our “Nagios XI – Bulk Host Import Usage” document, posted on the Nagios Library.
You can download the wizard from the Nagios Exchange by following this link.
Occasionally we get support requests from admins who need to uninstall Nagios XI in order to perform a fresh install or complete a move of XI to another server. In order to facilitate the cleanup and removal of Nagios XI on an old system, we put together a simple uninstall script and related documentation.
