I wrote an article a while back that walks you through how to setup a development environment running all four of these applications, at the same time, on the same server, using LXD System Containers and Ubuntu. --- NagiosXI --- Nagios Fusion --- Nagios Log Analyzer --- Nagios Network Analyzer The example lab is running on some pretty minimal hardware which overcomes the need and costs of running VMware or stand alone server hardware.
What is the Nag-Stack?

Ok, this isn’t an official term. The Nag-Stack is what I call the combined suite of Nagios monitoring tools.

--- Nagios Fusion
--- Nagios Log Analyzer (Naglog)

I wrote an article a while back that walks you through how to setup a development environment running all four of these applications, at the same time, on the same server, using LXD System containers and Ubuntu. Not to mention the example lab is running on some pretty minimal hardware which overcomes the need and costs of running VMware or stand alone server hardware.

Once complete you can spin-up, install, snapshot and test all manner of Nagios related things like:
- Test Software Releases
- Run Dedicated Plugin Development Instances
- Create Digital Twins of Servers

With some enhancement of LXD you can then push your server containers to other LXD Hosts and enter the realm of possibilities that comes with a containerized Nagios Application Environment.
