Nagios is a monitoring and management system for hosts, services, and networks.


In order to monitor anything in your juju environment for working PING and SSH, just relate the services to this service.

juju deploy nagios central-monitor juju deploy mysql big-db juju deploy statusnet microblog juju add-reation big-db microblog juju add-relation big-db central-monitor juju add-relation mocroblog central-monitor

This should result in your Nagios monitoring all of the service units.

monitors interface

The monitors interface expects three fields:

  • monitors - YAML matching the monitors yaml spec. See example.monitors.yaml for more information.
  • target-id - Assign any monitors to this target host definition.
  • target-address - Optional, specifies the host of the target to monitor. This must be specified by at least one unit so that the intended target-id will be monitorable.


There is an NRPE subordinate charm which must be used for any local monitors. See the 'nrpe' charm's README for information on how to make use of it.


(string) Any additional nagios configuration you would like to add can be set into this element. It will be placed in /etc/nagios3/conf.d/extra.cfg
