Install Nemon with Influxdb storage

Page content

I prefer to use Naemon (a fork of nagos) with Influxdb as a storage for graphical data.

Install Naemon

yum install epel-release nano -y
yum install httpd php php-gd -y

rpm -Uvh "https://labs.consol.de/repo/stable/rhel7/x86_64/labs-consol-stable.rhel7.noarch.rpm"

yum install naemon* -y
yum install nagios-plugins nagios-plugins-all nagios-plugins-nrpe nrpe -y

nano /etc/php.ini
date.timezone = Europe/Budapest


systemctl enable httpd
systemctl enable naemon
systemctl start httpd
systemctl start naemon

htpasswd /etc/thruk/htpasswd thrukadmin
# http://SERVER-IP/naemon

Install Infludxb

cat <<EOF | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/influxdb.repo

yum install influxdb -y

   enabled = true
   bind-address = "localhost:8086"
