Nagios 3.0 Enterprise Monitoring.

Nagios is the industry standard in enterprise-class monitoring for good reason. It allows you to gain insight into your network and fix problems before customers know they even exist. It's stable, scalable, supported, and extensible. Most importantly, it works.

I have installed nagios 3.0 and i was monitoring following services.

1.) Sendmail & mail queue
2.) Apache web servers
3.) Bind DNS servers
4.) Netbackup master and media servers
5.) VMware ESX
6.) Dell poweredge server hardware monitoring. (OpenManger plugin)
7.) APC PDU (power unit)
8.) Routers & switches
10.) CPU, Memory & Disk utilization.
11.) NTP servers

This is my first nagios 3.0 implementation nagios status map picture.
