I would like to do a network management tool. I need to know how we can use Nagios XI to monitor the network devices that present in the Cisco packet tracer??

Thanks in advance

  • There are lots of sites and videos that show you how to configure Nagios. It's too big a topic to explain here.

You can't.

Packet tracert is a closed simulator, which cannot be connected to anything outside of the program.

To do this you can use GNS3 (free - but require real Ciso IOS software images that are not free) or Cisco VIRL (payed) for example. But those require more resources (especially RAM) than Packet Tracer.
