Sometimes a system administrator needs to get around a few rules that are in place for good (or not) reasons. One example is when networks have ICMP turned off (or even just a portion of it). With ICMP off it can be difficult to configure tools like Nagios for simple up and down checks.
I have configure nagios server and client on my lab machines which are running under VMWARE.
Now i would like to know how the nagios working in my systems. For that, what i did is i filled up the / partition with some data above 95% in client. But still it is report good status report in disk paramater in nagios server about client.
