Passive Checks and NSCA using Nagios

Post date: December 8, 2008, 10:12 Category: Views: 5457 Comments
Tutorial quote: Nagios is a very powerful platform because it is easy to extend. A great feature that Nagios offers is the ability for third-party software or other Nagios instances to report information on the status of services or hosts. This way, Nagios does not need to schedule and run checks by itself, but other applications can report information as it is available to them. Nagios also offers a tool for sending passive check results for hosts and services over a network.

This chapter describes passive checks in detail. It gives practical examples of when and how they can be used. It also shows how to use NSCA (Nagios Service Check Acceptor)for sending notifications.
