Nagios is a powerful monitoring system that enables organizations to identify and resolve IT infrastructure problems before they affect critical business processes. Nagios is a powerful tool that provides you with instant awareness of your organization’s mission-critical IT infrastructure. Nagios allows you to detect and repair problems and mitigate future issues before they affect end-users and customers.

Here, I’ve compiled a list of addons and plugins for openSUSE 11.1. Please feel free to add to the list if you find some:
NSCA Server & Daemon plugin for Nagios. NSCA add-on allows the execution of NetSaint and Nagios plug-ins on a remote host.
NSCA Client for Nagios. NSCA add-on allows the execution of NetSaint and Nagios plug-ins on a remote host.
PNP is a tool that produces graphs from performance data from Nagios plugins.
Checks rsync servers availability, as well as (optionally) individual modules availability. It also supports authentication on modules.
NRPE daemon can be used to run nagios plug-ins on a remote machine for executing local checks. This package contains the software for both client and server.
Nagios Remote Plug-ins Executor(NRPE) can execute predefined commands on the remote host. Upon receiving a plugin request from an authorized host, it will execute the command line associated with the command name it received and send the program output and return code back to the check_nrpe plugin. Allowed monitoring commands are described in the daemon configuration file.
This package contains the README files, OpenOffice and PDF documentation for the remote plugin executor (NRPE) for nagios
This package contains the plug-in for the host runing the Nagios daemon.It is used to contact the NRPE process on remote hosts. The plugin requests that a plugin be executed on the remote host and wait for the NRPE process to execute the plugin and return the result.
The plugin then uses the output and return code from the plugin execution on the remote host for its own output and return code.
The GWFL Nagios Plugins introduced more advanced monitoring, with better data consolidation, meaning less performance and administration overhead. Also, the structure of the plugins meant anyone with a little C knowledge could easily write more plugins using the SNMPGET function included in the GWFL plugins, and using a similar coding format to the plugins provided.
SNMP GETNEXT functionality is included, so that number of CPUs/PSUs/Drives need not be specified, the plugins will determine this themselves.
This Nagios plugin queries prtAlertTable from the Printer MIB. It honors only prtAlertTrainingLevel = trained(4) or fieldService(5),prtAlertTrainingLevel = other(1),unknown(2),untrained(3) and management(6) are ignored.
For prtAlertSeverityLevel = warning(4) the plugin result is “WARNING”, for critical(3) the plugin result is “CRITICAL”, obviously, for warningBinaryChangeEvent(5) (new in RFC3805) the state is by default “WARNING”,
but there is a hardcoded table of change events, which result in state “CRITICAL”.
This plugin checks for software updates on systems that use package management systems based on the zypper command found in openSUSE.It checks for security, recommended and optional patches and also for
optional package updates.
You can define the status by patch category. Use a commata to list more than one category to a state.If you like to know the names of available patches and packages, use the “-v” option
Nagios plugin (script) to check the status of a NIS server on a specified host and NIS domain by asking NIS server for “passwd.byname”.As an additional check, a username may be specified which will then be “looked up” on the NIS server, note that this is optional and only introduced in v1.1
Script returns OK if it gets an acceptable answer, CRITICAL if not.
This *nix script has been designed and written for the lowest common denominator of shells (sh), uses yppoll, ypcat and grep as external commands.
A perl script that checks all local NFS mounts by forking itself and trying to chdir to it and (optionally) writing to a file. It includes performance data and allows warnings based on thresholds.
This package provides include files that Nagios-related applications may compile against.
This package provides debug sources for package nagios-plugins. Debug sources are useful when developing applications that use this package or when debugging this package.
NagiosQL is a web based administration tool for nagios 2.x. It helps you to easy build a complex configuration with all options, manage them and use them. NagiosQL needs a webserver with php, MySQL and file access to the nagios configuration files.
nagios (patched for nagiosQL)
Provides check_fping support for Nagios.
This plugin checks one or more directory for files older than a specified age. You can define the age of files for warning and critical states.
Note: the plugin checks the mtime of files, not the ctime.
Usage: check_dircontent.pl -w 24 -c 48 -p /tmp
-w|–warning : time for warnings (minutes)
-c|–critical : time for critical warnings (minutes)
-p|–pathnames : absolute path to the folders, split mutliple pathnames with commata
-t|–timeout : timeout (default: 15)
OpenQRM is the next generation data-center management platform.
Provides check_apt support for Nagios.
Provides check_by_ssh support for Nagios
Provides check_dig support for Nagios.
Provides check_disk_smb support for Nagios.
Provides check_dns support for Nagios.
Provides check_sensors support for Nagios.
Provides check_ntp support for Nagios
Provides check_log support for Nagios.
Provides check_snmp support for Nagios.
Provides check_game support for Nagios.
Provides check_rpc support for Nagios.
This package provides debug information for package nagios-plugins. Debug information is useful when developing applications that use this package or when debugging this package.
This package provides debug information for package nagios-nsca. Debug information is useful when developing applications that use this package or when debugging this package.
I have installed on a suse 11.1 64 bit nagios (using the Install & Configure Nagios in less than 5 minutes script)
and a add nagios-nrpe (also one click) after install and a reboot a get a message in nagios.
Unable to create temp file for writing status data
a make some more rights nagios:/var/lib/nagios so the temp file can be create.
