Read data for building stats from http



I wish to build some stats with nagios that would come from a http request sent by the nagios server.

The idea :

  • Webserver build a text/plain http stream containing stats
  • Nagios server request that page
  • Nagios process the content of the stream to build some stats (with the help of some scripts).

Is that possible with nagios?

Sure, anything is possible. Just write a plugin to do what you need.
