I used nagios many years ago, but I am using Zabbix now


How do you find both of them in terms of how they work?


I am using Zabbix to monitor my Ubuntu server. It is very easy to install Zabbix as well as to use it. I recommend it.


I didn’t use any tool for monitoring but searching about which is the best any suggestion?



Could you please tell how you used nagios for network monitoring


In each separate situation it is necessary to use a different monitoring system. I happened to use all three. To monitor the network better cacti, to monitor hundreds of the same type of servers on Linux - nagios, to monitor dozens of servers - zabbix.



I’am using zabbix, zenos and cacti in production enviroment.

Best regards
