At work, I always have a browser tab open for each of our two Nagios instances. At home, I used to check them from time to time. When out and about, I used to check my mail every time I got an email because I wanted to make sure it wasn't Nagios complaining about something.
Now that I've installed aNag on my Android phone and have special alert sounds set up in it I've become a happier admin!
It was about a month or so ago - I had tried some Nagios apps but was never happy with any of them. THEN, I found aNag. I set up one of our Nagios instances with it and started playing with all of the settings. I filtered out two warnings from test boxes.. chose an alert sound for criticals, did not set an alert sound for warnings.. etc..
The little aNag guy sits proudly at the top of my phone - at a glance I can see if he's happy or sad.
Green Android: All is good Yellow Android: at least one warning Red Android: at least one critical Black N: aNag is updating successfully with my Nagios instances Red N: aNag failed to successfully update with at least one instance
At any time I can view the warnings/criticals by bringing up the app. I can Ack right from the app.. there's links to my Nagios installation from within the app..
If you rely on Nagios to tell you what's going on, go to the market and download aNag today. It's free and I could not live happily ever after without it! PLUS, the developer (Damien Degois) is on top of updates - it seems like it's updated at least once/week.
