NEMS is the Nagios Enterprise Monitoring Server for Single Board Computers

Say goodbye to Nagios config files. NEMS Linux (/nɛmz/) is a modern pre-configured, customized and ready-to-deploy Nagios Core image designed to run on enterprise hypervisors or low-cost single-board computers such as the Raspberry Pi. NEMS Linux Enterprise Edition includes builds for VMWare ESXi, Amazon Web Services' EC2 and more. All releases feature a modern, self-hosted browser-based UI, and countless extras. At its core NEMS Linux is a lightweight Debian-based operating system, optimized for performance, reliability and ease of use.

NEMS Linux simplifies initial deployment and configuration of an enterprise monitoring server powered by Nagios Core and adds many complex features, integrating several open source projects and custom applications to create a well rounded, fully functional appliance that is scalable for any sized network. NEMS Linux is not just a "pre-installed Nagios Core distro," but rather is an entire Linux distribution built around providing a powerful and feature-rich Nagios-based appliance.

NEMS Linux is ready to download, deploy, and use, right out of the box.
