What is Nagios

Nagios is one of the best enterprise grade server monitoring solutions available. Unlike cPanel, it's available across a wide range of Linux distributions, including Debian and Ubuntu. Since Ubuntu 18.04 is an LTS release, upgrading your servers and running Nagios on them could be a great idea. Even though Nagios isn't up to date in the Ubuntu repositories, and setup isn't turn-key, it's still not too hard to get it running.
