Title: Learning Nagios 3.0
Publisher: Packt Publishing
Author: Wojciech Kocjan
Nagios is a powerful and popular network monitoring software. I contacted PackT and asked for a review copy of the book.
Read the full table of contents on the publisher's site.
The topic being system administration, I could read the book from cover to cover in three days.
Like many other technical books, introductory pages of Learning Nagios 3.0 sells you Nagios. The first chapter convinces you why you should use Nagios to make your life easier by setting up automated monitoring of your servers.
