Nagios has been around for quite some time, but producing output it can consume is something of a black art. Only the plugin documentation actually explains what all the extra semicolons or extended formatting even mean. This is especially onerous when performance consuming add-ons expect a specific structure before operating properly. The NagAconda package strives to greatly simplify the process of actually generating Nagios output using Python.
Nagios 4 iPhone is a Nagios interface for the iPhone. It does not require any modifications on your Nagios servers. The server part of this software collects statistics on several Nagios servers, serves a few static files, and generates a JSON response. The client part handles the display of the data on the iPhone.
SpurTracer is a push-notification based monitoring solution for heterogenous loosely coupled IT infrastructures. It complements a service-endpoint monitoring solution like Nagios with a component-level interface auto-discovery. It automatically provides a certain level of functional tracing along with many non-functional measurements (e.g. call, error and timeout rates, interface latency, component execution, etc.). While being zero config itself, SpurTracer relies on you adding push notification support to the components you want to monitor. The best way to use SpurTracer is by adding punctual tracing to components in your infrastructure on-demand.
DaVINCI is a dashboard builder and editor for Nagios systems. It can be used to add advanced visualization functionalities for Nagios-based management applications. Its editor uses a drag and drop interface to allow users get monitoring indicators and information directly from their databases and show them in a graphical and animated dashboard, without having to write a single line of code.
check_db2_health is a plugin for Nagios that allows you to monitor DB2 database servers. Itcan operate in several modes: measuring how long it takes to connect and log in; display the number of connected users; display percentage of synchronous reads (SRP); display the percentage of asynchronous writes; display hit ratio in Buffer Pools, or only in Data Pages or Index Pages; display the percentage of SELECT that use an index; display the number of deadlocks per second; display the number of lock requests per second that could not be satisfied; display the fraction of time which was spent waiting for locks; display used space in a database or tablespace; display free space in a tablespace (in contrast to the previous mode, you can use units (MB, GB) for the thresholds); or display used space in a database log.
The Business Objects XI Monitoring plug-in is a software package for monitoring the operation and usage of BusinessObjects XI and Crystal Reports servers. It works with the widely used infrastructure management frameworks, Nagios, HP OpenView, and IBM Tivoli. The plugin is able to check scheduled and manual report runs, measure execution times, and evaluate and eliminate errors before business processes are severely impacted.
NS4300N Nagios Utils is a collection of tools for working with the Promise NS4300N NAS within the Nagios framework. The two current tools allow for monitoring the chassis and remotely shutting down the system. Future versions of this utility set will include the ability to monitor drives and volumes.
Monitoring::Spooler is a handy queue manager for queueing and delivery of monitoring notifications. It is able to handle several groups of on-call personnel and provides an extensible plugin mechanism to connect it to virtually any remote service which provides some kind of API. It is designed to work nicely with App::Standby.
