NEMS Linux. Anyone used it yet?

Post by ConligWX » Tue 18 Sep 2018 11:08 am

Hi guys,

just found this program after trying to use Nagois core, MRTG, Cacti.

What is NEMS Linux?

NEMS is the Nagios Enterprise Monitoring Server for Single Board Computers like Raspberry Pi and ODROID Board.

It is a pre-configured, customized and ready-to-deploy on a SD Card/eMMC

At its core NEMS is a lightweight Debian Stretch deployment optimized for performance, reliability and ease of use and runs Nagios Core with several built in a fully functional plugins.

It is web based so no need for Keyboard, Mouse or Monitor. Just use SSH once to initialize the config and then everything else is web based. Backing up the configuration is in one file and is easy as grabbing the file once a day via rsync, wget etc or you can pay for a cloud based backup as well.

If you have a spare Raspi laying about, its definitely worth looking at since it is free and pretty easy to configure.

hope you like it, its definitely got potential. I have it running at the moment on a pi 3b though I have an ODROID XU4Q to play around with too. Robbie the developer seems very approachable and has more to give the project.

nope my Weather Station (CumulusMX) is on an Intel NUC using Debain Stretch.

I have various other devices, like FlightAware on a Raspi 3B+, and one other pi 3B running NEMS. I had bought the ODROID a while back and had just been toying with it, but now may use it for NEMS instead.
