About the Book
Just Enough Nagios...
... to be dangerous.
Nagios is the industry learer in infrastructure monitoring software so getting to know it in a safe environment is a really useful idea. Better yet, we can run it on everyones favourite low cost computer the Raspberry Pi!
Is this book for you?
It's not written for experts. It's put together as a guide to get you started if you're unsure about how to make the first move with a Raspberry Pi, Linux and Nagios.
Why is Just Enough Nagios being written?
Because in the process of learning things, it's a great way to remember them if you write them down :-).
Writing about how to do cool stuff with computers means that we're accumulating ways to help ourselves out when the going gets tricky. Making a book out of the information is a no-brainer since that way more people benefit from the process.
The awesome that is Leanpub.
The book has some information in it, but there's still a bit more to come. Publishing using Leanpub will allow readers to get easy notification of when updates and improvements are made.
So we hope you get something out of the book, please excuse the sometimes light-hearted conversational manner in which we approach the topic and enjoy Nagios!
About the Author
I have a passion for knowledge and I realise that part of the responsibility of gathering knowledge is being able to advance the state of the human condition in some way.
My aims in writing these books are to play with software, achieve personal goals and try something new for fun. It also helps that I think Open Source, technology, the visual representation of data and information rock in serious ways.
The books that I write are a mechanism to support my own learning, so the way I explain things is focused on trying to impart understanding in a simple but functional way.
I'm totally in awe of the Open Source community that has made this type of work possible. If you feel that you would like to support continued development of this content, feel free to donate when you download.
