Monitoring/Paging Overview

Our monitoring solution schedules and runs various system checks and reports when these checks fail.
  • Monitoring solution (Sysnews) is based on Nagios
  • Executes various system checks and sends alerts when these checks fail.
  • Supports server profiles that can be shared across multiple servers
  • New checks can be added and modified without requiring operational changes to the system
  • Alerts are sent by email or SMS (text message)
  • Uses pager.ncsu.edu system which manages group membership for notifications
  • An “on call” person will receive these notifications when a server check fails.
  • Server status can be checked via the Sysnews website
  • Problems that can not be resolved immediately can be placed in a “maintenance mode” which turns off notifications
