Installation of monitoring tools

Just finished installing Rocky 8.4 GA release in a V Box and I managed to install and configure Nagios 4.4.6 and Zabbix 5.0 . Everything is working properly.


Nice to know, might have to try Zabbix sometime.

I personally use CheckMK, with the appropriate check-mk-agent for monitoring. There’s a ton of plugins as well for additional application monitoring. It can also use Nagios plugins if a native CheckMK one isn’t available. I tested CheckMK 2.0.0p6 with Rocky, installs fine and works good so far.


Thank you iwalker for your information.
I never heard of CheckMK but I will try.

i used Zabbix a long time ago which is great , now i mainly use pandoraFMS , just give it a try , it a wonderful solution and very easy to install and manage

good luck

We had some people interested in running OpenNMS on Rocky Linux as well and we got positive feedback that OpenNMS Horizon 28+ with the RHEL/CentOS instructions work without any issues.

This is good to hear. My shop is currently using Xymon for monitoring (and I can confirm that the xymon-client from Terabithia installs beautifully on Rocky), but we’ve been waiting for Rocky GA to begin exploring a transition to Zabbix. Glad to know @beniksh has already gotten to this, and it’s proven to work as expected!

Hello iwalker,

I was installing and configuring CheckMK v.2 with Rocky. Everything was fine, easy to install and configure.

Thank you!
