Please indicate your preferred day to give a demo.

Nagios is the monitoring solution put forward by the EGEE Operations Automation Team for grid sites to help them improve the reliability and availability of their site. In this session we will demonstate the installation and configuration of Nagios, using standard EGEE tools such as YAIM. we will show how it is linked to the testing that will be done (a.la SAM) by their ROC and tools such as the EGEE regional dashbaord and GGUS, allowing them to quickly respond to operations problems.
