Now that we've set up our Shinken server, we're going to want to monitor a client.
Prerequisites: Check out this introductory guide to Shinken and Nagios, and make sure you've set up your Shinken server, first. You'll need to set up an additional client server, so make sure you're familiar with Vagrant and VirtualBox. This guide was written for Mac OS X users.
More Configuration for the Shinken Server
The first thing we'll want to do is make some changes to our Shinken server to prepare it for the client, so let's ssh back into that machine.
# ssh into the server vm vagrant ssh hostname1 # log in as root user sudo su # switch to the shinken user su shinken # create a host file config for the client vi /etc/shinken/hosts/client.cfg
