Yes, the performance is a very important point, that's the initial
reason for looking deeper to embedded perl.
I have a perl script, as standalone daemon which does the job. I do not
expect high load from syslogging to MySQL. Can you explain shortly why
you do?

That's the input I was waiting for. I will do some investigations
on it... That would mean I do not need to write a plugin but a single
app which returns the states Nagios expects.

Okay, mod_perl is quite an alternative.

These states are for plugins only, or for passive check results too?
This would be different from
${NAGIOS_HOME}/share/docs/passivechecks.html, so I wunder.
