FolkeHacks - Nagios 1.2 Host-Check Enhancement
Nagios 1.2 Host-Check Enhancement
This is a hack for the network monitor nagios (www.nagios.org
For every host you can specify a 'check_command', but no parameters, different to the 'check_command' for services, where this is possible.
If you want to monitor hosts inside a firewalled and NATed network from outside, you can check that hosts with nrpe/nrpe2,
installed on the firewall.
check_nrpe/check_nrpe2 takes some parameters; for the services no problem,
but if you want to do the same with the host-check_command, you need my patch.
Nagios 1.2 Host-Check Enhancement gives you the possibility to use parameters for the host-check_command.
Just use parameters! Something like
inside 'define host' is now possible.
