Administrations sponsor extension of open source network monitoring tool

OSOR.euSeveral public administrations in Spain are sponsoring the development of Zorb, an open source extension to Nagios, an open source network monitoring tool. Zorb allows users to fine-tune the processing of events generated from the monitored instances, hosts and services. Zorb has just been published on the OSOR Forge.

The development of Zorb is made possible with the help of Cenatic, the Spanish government’s resource centre on open source and open standards,the government of Tenerife and the public administration of the city of Benicasim.

The public administrations hope that Zorb will help to improve the way Nagios can handle its alerts.

Using Zorb means users can split event destinations. This should make it possible, for instance, to improve log management without needing the default Nagios log. Another aim is to improve the distribution and processing of events, for instance by using encryption or developing load balancing systems. A third proposed feature is to allow storage in LDAP directory servers as well as in the Nagios default, a MySQL database server.

Zorb is published using the GNU General Public License (GPL).
