Default Bug#616294: ITP: nagixsc -- flexible transport agent for Nagios/Icinga check results

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Sebastian Harl <tokkee@debian.org>

Version : Git snapshot
Upstream Author : Sven Velt <sv@teamix.net>

Programming Lang: Python
Description : flexible transport agent for Nagios/Icinga check results

Nag(ix)SC is a replacement for NRPE (Nagios Remote Plugin Executor) and NSCA
(Nagios Service Check Acceptor) supporting multiple transport mechanisms like
HTTP(S), SSH, rsync, or whatever you like. It may be used to execute Nagios/
Icinga plugins on a remote host or to send service check results to a central
monitoring server.
Nag(ix)SC includes simple HTTP server implementations to send and receive
check results and execute plugins. HTTP is the preferred way to transfer the
generated data because of the following benefits:
* simple protocol with many existing support tools (e.g. curl) and
* libraries
for basically any programming and scripting language
* support for relaying/forwarding through (reverse-)proxies
* support for authorization and authentication
* support for encryption (HTTPS)
* filtering possibilities
Nagios/Icinga are monitoring and management systems for hosts, services and

This software will be packaged in the pkg-nagios team.
