Running Nagios on Windows


I have hear a TON of talk recently that it’s actually possible to run Nagios on Windows… yet I see no download on the site.

Is this true or hype?



True as far as I can tell, but why on earth would you want to? It would be ran on windows using cygwin is my guess. But I suppose the source code might have been ported to windows. But again, why on earth would anyone do that? Seems like putting a Porche engine in a yugo. The engine will never die, but the chassis will fall apart around it.


AHhh OK, I wasn’t sure if there was an actual ‘Nagios for Windows’ application, it sounds like people are only monitoring Windows servers from Unix using Nagios.
