HPR Correspondents bring you Interviews from interesting people and projects

When it comes to monitoring your network, and the machines on it, you have a lot of options. But, let’s face it : none of those are easy to implement, and configuring a monitoring tool, whether it’s an open-source or a proprietary one, is often complex and time consuming.

Well, someone took that matter into their own hands, and made NEMS. What is NEMS, how can it help us, and what infrastructure does it require? Those are a few of the questions I asked Robbie Ferguson, the maintainer of NEMS, who joined me on Easter week-end for a little chat.

Just what I was looking for

I had tried NagiosPi and came to the same conclusion as Robbie. This looks like it will be a great alternative. I will definitely be contributing and recommending this software. Thanks to Robbie for the great project and to Yannick for the fantastic episode.
