[Nagios-devel] Database feeder for Nagios.Log

Postby Guest » Tue Apr 09, 2002 3:38 am

Hi All,

It appears that there are a few of us tinkering with mysql or others for
logging of status history information a la nagios.log.

We appear (including Ethan) to be converging on the idea that an external
feed to the database is the long term way to go.

As an interim step - would there be any interest if I started to look at
implementing a named pipe replacement for nagios.log and created a 'little
something' that continues to feed a log, but also directs the SERVICE and
HOST ALERT data to database tables. This would seem to be a prelude to
some of the things Ethan is now considering and so probably not a throw -
away. In the medium term it could also maintain the other servicestatus,
hoststatus etc tables as well from this feed.

Let me know ... I'm thinking hard about it right now.
