Yesterday I have discovered a new addition to the Nagios family: Nagios Mobile.
It is a PHP application made by Hirose Masaaki and promoted by Nagios Enterprises.
From the author:
“Nagios Mobile is a lightweight web interface, based on the Teeny Nagios project by Hirose Masaaki. Nagios Mobile is a PHP web-based application designed for Mobile and touch-screen devices.”
Watching the “Network Monitoring Application of the Year” vote on http://www.linuxquestions.org I have noticed a new Nagios / competitor: Shinken. The name describes a very sharp Japanese sword – associating the program with its large scale monitoring capabilities.

But because this was a complicated setup I was forced to use a bash script under the “/sbin/ifup”.
The script looked like this:
DMZ_INTERFACE=”eth0″ #we should have an IP address on this network – 126.96.36.199/24
LAN_INTERFACE_1=”eth1″ #we should have an IP address on this network – 10.12.0.0/24
EXTIPADDR=”188.8.131.52″ #an dmz gateway
INTIPADDR=”10.12.0.254″ #all the internal traffic
When I tried to make a radius based authentication system with our Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) I was hit by the lack of documentation of this feature. The only valid links I have found is this one:
