Title:Does Nagios support passive host checks?

Description:

User would like to know if Nagios supports passive host checks.

 

Solution:

Nagios supports passive service checks, but it does not support passive host checks at this time. There are a number of reasons for this, which I do not care to go into here. I will be looking into the possibility of adding passive host checks into future versions of Nagios, but I will make no guarantees about anything.
