Nagios XI plugin
Visit our website to see the data that you can access if you use this plugin to add the data source to SquaredUp:
Monitor key metrics from your Nagios environment.
Note: This data source is an on-premises data source.
An on-premises data source 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 adds a data source that streams data from your Nagios XI environment into SquaredUp. In your Nagios environment, metrics about your hosts are called "services", which is why the data source creates objects of type host and service. The data source 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.
How to add a Nagios XI data source
In SquaredUp browse to Data Sources > Add data source and search for the data source. Alternatively, browse to Settings > Data Sources > Add data source.
Enter a name for your data source. This helps you to identify this data source in the list of your data sources.
Select the Agent Group that contains the agent(s) you want to use.
Enter the full URL to your Nagios XI instance, for example
Enter the API key you created in your Nagios instance.
Note: Nagios API keys are user-specific. Make sure you created the API key with a user account that has access to all the data you want to see.
Optionally, select whether you would like to restrict access to this data source instance. By default, restricted access is set to off.Restrict access to this workspace?
The term data source here really means data source instance. For example, a user may configure two instances of the AWS data source, one for their development environment and one for production. In that case, each data source instance has its own access control settings.
By default, Restrict access to this data source? is set to off. The data source can be viewed, edited and administered by anyone. If you would like to control who has access to this data source, switch Restrict access to this data source? to on.
Use the Restrict access to this data source? dropdown to control who has access to the workspace:
Data source access levels
By default, the user setting the permissions for the data source will be given Full Control and the Everyone group will be given Link to workspace permissions.
Tailor access to the data source, as required, by selecting individual users or user groups from the dropdown and giving them Link to workspace or Full Control permissions.
If the user is not available from the dropdown, you are able to invite them to the data source 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. Once the account has been created, they will gain access to the tenant.
At least one user or group must be given Full Control.
Admin users can edit the configuration, modify the Access Control List (ACL) and delete the data source, regardless of the ACL chosen.
Link to workspace
- User can link the data source to any workspace they have at least Editor permissions for.
- Data from the data source can then be viewed by anyone with any access to the workspace.
User can share the data source data with anyone they want.
User cannot configure the data source in any way, or delete it.
- User can change the data source configuration, ACL, and delete the data source.
