Hi All,

I recently setup my first Nagios 3 installation. I have it up and running and its reporting the local host. I have not had any luck finding some good documenation and the easiet way to monitor web sites that are not running on the local host, but another server.

What is the easiest way to monitor external websites and be notified when the web site goes down?

Thanks!

You can check that the service is running using standard WMI, but here is a good plugin for what you need ;

Looks cool but can't seem to find just a basic how-to guide for newbies.
