I know this has already been addresses by others but i have another
If im reding you right you have a linux box setup with nagios and you
want to monitor services on a remote freebsd box ?
SMTP wont be an issue, that can be monitored with check_smtp as someone
has already suggested, local stats like disk usage can be monitored a
number of ways, personaly i've found nrpe (nagios remote plugin
executor), nrpe basicly allows you to execute nagios check plugins over
a network/the internet, it's in ports (2 versions depending on which
version of nagios you have installed) and it'll install the
nagios-plugins package as a dependancy, once it's installed you can
configure the commands nrpe will answer and these commands in turn call
a nagios plugin.
