Nagios XI plugin
Monitor key metrics from your Nagios environment.
Note: This plugin is an on-premises plugin.
An on-premises plugin connects a service running in your internal network to SquaredUp. They require an agent installed on a machine that has access to your internal network.
This plugin streams data from your Nagios XI environment into SquaredUp. In your Nagios environment, metrics about your hosts are called "services", which is why the plugin creates objects of type host and service. The plugin comes with Data Streams to show you CPU usage and Memory usage of your hosts.
You can also visualize the status of your hosts or services with the Nagios XI Health Data Stream.

Use the Restrict access to this plugin? dropdown to control who has access to the workspace:

By default, the user setting the permissions for the plugin will be given Full Control and the Everyone group will be given Link to workspace permissions.

If the user is not available from the dropdown, you are able to invite them to the plugin by typing in their email address and then clicking Add. The new user will then receive an email inviting them to create an account on SquaredUp Cloud. Once the account has been created, they will gain access to the tenant.
