The Nagios Support Team has been working hard to compile our new Nagios Support Knowledge Base!
Almost everyone who has used a Nagios product is familiar with our documentation. We pride ourselves in writing solid docs, which is why we are proud to announce our centralized Nagios Support Knowledge Base!
The new Knowledge Base (KB) will improve users’ ability to find and use Nagios documentation for their environment. First and foremost, the KB provides a database of documentation that can be searched by topic, text, and tag so multiple related docs can be discovered at the same time. The goal was to group the search results together to broaden the knowledge presented beyond just the strictly relevant doc and make it easy to find exactly what users needed. By creating the Nagios KB, we now have a central repository for our docs that is laid out in a logical hierarchy of topics and subtopics. This should help group concepts together, improve cohesion between docs, and allow our users to find what they are looking for.
One thing to note: Our old docs are still going to be around, but we will be slowly migrating their content into the KB so over time we will reference the PDF links less and less in favor of the KB articles.
I don’t want to ramble on and on about the new KB, so go check it out for yourself!
