Database access via Nagios

Postby MCM » Mon Mar 15, 2010 12:49 pm


I am aware that Nagios provides mulitple ways for a user to connect a Nagios application instance to a separate database. This flexibility is great because for some users, this might be a remote MySQL server while for others it might be a local file. As a developer, developing either a CGI (assuming this is possible) which requires access to stored information or a plugin that writes information to storage (to be later used by a CGI), I need a way of accessing the underlying database without actually knowing what it is. So the question is, does Nagios have some library or functionality to cope with this scenario?

Thanks in advance.
