Adagios Install on CentOS 6.4

Nagios has long since established itself as one of the best Open Source monitoring tools. Since its’ inception spawning a huge library of plugins, frontends, mods, forks and the list goes on… But I found something really unique when I stumbled upon Adagios. The design philosophy behind Adagios is to be simple, intuitive and fully featured… even though they are still working hard to deliver a final Product, I am very impressed with what they have accomplished. And even more excited knowing that there are many more improvements to come!

 

Some of the Key features of Adagios are:

  • Built in Status Page
  • Push Install Windows & Linux Agents
  • Network Scan
  • Intuitive & Simplistic Design
  • Tons of pre-bundled plugins and configuration templates

And if you want to take Adagios for a spin before diving into the install process, Check out their Live Demo.

If you get a OKCONFIG not writable error after reboot…


If you get the following screen after a system reboot, It is due to SELINUX settings reverting to their default.

okconfig_not_writable

 

The only way that I’ve found to negate this, is to edit /etc/grub.conf/

grub_conf_selinux_disable

Save and Exit Grub.Conf after making your changes.

Reboot and then run:

It should read as disabled at this point.

      Adagios is still a work in progress, may have changed in the install location / commands. That is why I was wary of including the install directions in my post! Did you follow the install directions @ http://adagios.org before attempting to run the update command??

      I would contact them directly @ http://adagios.org/#contact-us and let them know so they can fix it.
