A while back I wrote about using Nagios as a monitoring system.
Since then, I’ve had need to have it deployed via a packaging system called RPM, and since no “stable” community editions are out there, I have the need to “roll my own” for distribution on our platforms.
I’ve never used RPM from the “packager” side before – and it’s both very cool and infuriating. It has all sort of features and powerful macros, but debugging it isn’t a piece of cake at all.
If anyone has a great RPM tool out there that they want to recommend, let me know.
