Ambari Forum

Integrating HDP Nagios with existing Nagios infrastructure

  • #17089

    We have created a small Hortonworks cluster using Ambari, which installs its own Nagios components. We have our own Nagios infrastructure for monitoring and I am looking for a solution to “integrate” the 2 systems, ideally allowing for additional server-related checks from our existing infrastructure and passing on the alerts Ambari receives.

    Has anyone done something similar? Any suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, Bobby

    Thanks for trying HDP.

    I think it is possible to integrate the 2 monitoring systems:

    Here are my 2 points. Feel free to try.

    1. The HDP nagios installation has configuration files under /etc/nagios. Please refer to hdp nagios configuration files accordingly.
    2. The HDP plugins are under /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/. Please try to copy those plugins to your plugin folder.

    Let us know if you have any questions.
