That Nagios program is amazing, thanks for sharing.
Problem I'm mainly referring to is simply booting up each machine and logging in via VNC...takes 5 minutes, not sure why I'm complaining. Everything after that is automated and controlled remotely right now via VNC/mRemote etc.
I assume Nagios does stuff like batch software installs though? That's super cool stuff...though each of my slaves only requires a grand total of 3 applications installed; Maya, VRay, Nuke.
Would take me probably 100x longer to learn how to run Nagios than to just nut up and install the software manually.
