Agentless Monitoring

In this article, I am going to explain how to implement a monitoring on your system, using an agentless solution (without Nagios’ nrpe agents), and I will underline some advantages of this useful solution. The target machine will be Linux or Unix Operating Systems.

The need can arise from the fact that some of the Operating Systems do not provide the Nagios’ agent or the customer does not intend to install software of third parties, as the system is considered too critical or the customer wants to avoid discussions with the assistance offered by the system’s vendor.
