I installed the current version of NEMS last week on my Rpi 4. I am starting to add a few hosts to monitor my small home network, mostly with ping.
I would like to monitor a FQDN and it does not seem like DNS is translating it. I cannot seem to get check_ping or Ping to work with a FQDN, ie google.com. I can get 22.214.171.124 to work successfully. I checked my Rpi using ping google.com and it does translate and work. Not sure what I am doing wrong.
The nagios support forum shows:
You can put the FDQN of the host in the address field instead of the IP address. It doesn't have to be an IP address in that field, a host name will work as well.
The Nagios process will do a DNS lookup if there is a host name and the check should work the way you want.
Thank you very much,
