The latest version of the JumpBox for Nagios includes a web-based administration tool that makes it much easier to use Nagios to monitor resources on your network. Below is a short screencast that demonstrates the bare essentials of how to get started. In the video we setup Nagios to watch a Wordpress blog, take the blog offline and see how the notifications are handled within Nagios.  As always leave a comment here on the blog if you have questions or search the Nagios Community Wiki.
