Nagios CentOS 1 – Installing Nagios And Its Dependencies

The next step is to install Nagios and its dependencies on to the server using yum.  To install Nagios using yum perform the following step :-

  • In the command line execute the command below :-

yum install nagios nagios-devel nagios-plugins nagios-plugins-nrpe


The command above will install Nagios and some or all of the additional dependencies listed below on to the server once you accept the install :-

fping
icinga
perl-Crypt-DES
perl-Digest-HMAC

Depending on the initial build of the CentOS server then some of these dependencies may not be required or may require updating as part of the yum install process.
