Server Monitoring with Munin & Nagios

I setup Munin to monitor the web server hosting this site recently.  The server has been running 24/7 for almost 3 years now, on relatively inexpensive hardware. so I wanted to start monitoring it, from time to time, to make sure it continues to run smoothly. You can view the web interface at

I also installed Nagios this weekend on the server, which can monitor the local web server, but can also be used for remote monitoring. I had heard of Nagios before, it is considered by many to be the standard in server monitoring software, but had not had a chance to work with it yet. There are a large number of plugins available which can monitor local and remote servers using snmp, ping, etc. I have only just scratched the surface with it so far, but wanted to install it for  and have a look so I can learn more about it.
