I've seen several guides online which describe downloading and building Nagios on Ubuntu servers. Is there also an aptitude package I could use to install Nagios 3?

You can find nagios3 packages with the command:

aptitude search nagios3

Or just:

aptitude search nagios

To install it, run:

aptitude install nagios3 nagios-plugins nagios-plugins-basic nagios-plugins-standard nagios-plugins-extra
