Nagstamon is a Nagios status monitor sits in the systray or on desktop as floating statusbar to inform you in realtime about the status of your Nagios monitored network. It works best with GNOME but also with KDE and in Windows.

Install Nagstamon in openSUSE

Before installing Nagstamon, the “python-lxml” package needs to be installed for Nagstamon to work. Install python-lxml as follows:

opensuse:~ # yast2 -i python-lxml

Now, download Nagstamon installation RPM package from here and install as follows:

opensuse:~ # yast2 -i nagstamon-0.7.1-2.noarch.rpm

This should install Nagstamon under “Applications – Internet – More Programs”.

Click to launch Nagstamon, enter the Nagios server information like the URL to access, the CGI path, user account details and then customize the view like to have a floating status bar on the desktop or a systray icon etc. Once done, you should see the nagios monitoring at a click of a button.
