Relaying checks through NSCA to Nagios server


#1

Hi, i’ve tried to search both google and forums and have not found anything about this. Perhaps looking for the wrong stuff. But here goes,

I have a couple of hosts i want to monitor with passive checks. I only have connection to one machine at this remote site through openVPN and would like to relay all checks through that machine. I thought NSCA would be the obvious choice here but after looking around maybe not.

What i would like to accomplish is host -> server with openVPN -> Nagios

Maybe there is a solution that i’ve totally missed, but any input is very welcome.

Regards
Rickard

create a scond nagios server and have the results sent back to the main server. using passive checks you’ll find all services in the main nagios console.
