Install the nagios network monitoring program OS X Server
John C. Welch has written up a thorough walk-through on installing Nagios, "an open source host, service and network monitoring program" (shamlessly lifted from their website).

I haven't tried this, as I have no need for it (nor do I have OS X Server), but if you'd like a network monitoring tool on your Server box, this seems like a good one (check their stats page for some data on who's using their tools).

Does not need OS X Server

I've got this 99% running on a client install of Panther. I used Fink (and FinkCommander) to install the required libs. The compile was straightforward using the author's notes. Apache can be started/stopped in the Sharing System Preference, and the http DocumentRoot (and enabling CGI) can be specified in the /etc/httpd/httpd.conf file.

I am stuck at the point at the end where the paths to 'images' and 'stylesheets' are being prepended with 'nagios'.

Found the problem. Nagios is now running on client.

It was a line in nagios/etc/cgi.cfg
