Q: How much log data can be sent to Nagios Log Server?
A: We don't cap the amount of log data that is sent to Nagios Log Server. Instead, the limit for the amount of log data that can be handled is based on the physical hardware of the Nagios Log Server instances.
Q: What is an instance? Why would I want one?
A: Nagios Log Server systems are based on a clustering model. Each server in the cluster is called an instance. Adding instances to your cluster allows for data redundancy and a balanced workload.
Q: Is there a Free Edition of Nagios Log Server?
A: Yes! Nagios started in the Open Source community and we hold strong to our roots. Nagios Log Server is free to use for up to 500MB of log data per day. This makes it easy to monitor small environments or to try it in your environment before you make a purchase decision.
Q: What types of logs can be sent to Nagios Log Server?
A: Right out-of-the-box, Nagios is configured to be able to receive Windows Event Logs, Linux Syslogs, and Network Device Syslogs - as well as log information from any Windows and Linux machine. Additional log types can be added through the convenient GUI configuration wizard.
