Project ID:

Current stage: 
Manager: 
Unit: 
What: 

Description:

The School's existing Nagios framework was developed by Simon Wilkinson (see Project 22) and has now been in use for a couple of years.

The system needs to be ported to the v3 series of Nagios running on SL6_64 platform.

Deliverables:

  1. An operational Nagios v3 system
  2. Final project report
Why: 

Customer: The CO community

Case statement:

We currently use Nagios v2.12, which is the last release in the v2 series. This is now old technology, and we need to upgrade to the v3 series - which, in any case, promises performance improvements. The transition to SL6_64 is an appropriate time to do this.

When: 

Status:

Timescales: Upgrading the underlying nagios system could take 4 weeks, including testing.

Priority:

Time:

How: 

Proposal:

Resources:

  • Familiarisation: at least 2 weeks
  • Porting: at least 2 weeks.

Plan:

  1. Familiarisation with existing code base
  2. Port system to Nagios v3
  3. Generally 'tidy up' the DICE Nagios configuration (in particular, the many header files now involved) as appropriate.
