I m new to Icinga. I would like to know if i can monitor my Linux server runing on the same network as the Icinga Server with the Icinga agent. if yes, is it a good idea or not?
i am asking because, what i ve read about the Icinga agent and all tutorials dealt with remote host monitoring or windows monitoring.
It is one of way of monitoring and a lot of people here use, so if you feel comfortable with it, just go ahead.
My advice is to keep automation in mind however small the number of agents you are deploying. Use of something like puppet, ansible, saltstack etc is highly recomended.
Thank you very much.
