Description:

[Forked from Project 230 - Monitoring system enhancements]

The existing Nagios monitoring system provides an interface for passive monitoring, but the implementation of any such monitoring is a distinct matter from the Nagios monitoring system software itself.

Some passive monitoring has been implemented already, but it might benefit from being standardised (for example, with respect to the Kerberos principals used.) In addition, there is a need for passive monitoring of disk space usage.

This project will:

  • review the existing passive monitoring implementations;
  • standardise them as necessary; and
  • implement a disk space passive monitor.

Deliverables: As described above.

Why: 

Customer: Informatics COs

Case statement: We need to monitor disk space usage, and we need to provide an agreed reference implementation for any future passive monitoring efforts.
