When it comes to understanding how your hosts and systems are performing, Nagios serves as one of the best infrastructure monitoring tools in the industry. Now, with the launch of the Blue Medora Nagios Management Pack for vRealize Operations, you can extend your monitoring to a deeper level so you have essential insight into issues when they arise, pinpointing problems faster and driving optimal performance across your infrastructure.
Knowing when issues arise serves as an important component of monitoring, but to truly drive performance, it’s essential to know the why. With the 170+ metrics available in the Blue Medora Management Pack for Nagios, you gain that insight.

Understand which systems deserve a deeper look to prevent warnings from becoming critical issues. Extend the monitoring information available in Nagios and leverage it in a single console with vRealize Operations and Blue Medora to go beyond understanding a performance issue, but also to see what may be causing the problem — such as when your disks may be reaching capacity or if your host disks experience bottlenecks.
Within the Blue Medora Management Pack for Nagios, leverage relationship mapping to see all the pieces of your infrastructure in one place. Relationship mapping includes both internal and external relationships, including the ability to see those between VMware and Nagios hosts, VMware VM and Nagios hosts and VMware VM and Nagios systems.
The resources are connected to the virtual layer, giving you the ability to monitor everything in one tool and transform the ability to navigate between resources and drill down to root-cause issues.
Combined with insight into 170+ metrics, six comprehensive monitoring dashboards, detailed alerts and notifications and key capacity definitions, Nagios users can take their monitoring to another level with the ability to gain more insight and information about systems and hosts, all within a single tool.
