GroundWork Foundation is a data abstraction and integration layer for Nagios. It has PHP, Perl and Java API's for querying data. Uses a feeder-listener architecture that is easily extended to integrate with any application that sends data over a network.
GroundWork Foundation is an open and extendable IT management platform enabling users to integrate IT monitoring and management data from disparate sources. With GroundWork Foundation, data from both open source tools and legacy management systems can be accessed via real time status views, reports and dashboards.

GroundWork Status Viewer, a user interface for Nagios, relies on Foundation technology to extract, process and display Nagios monitoring data.

Features of GroundWork Foundation

* Standardized User Interfaces and APIs: APIs available with GroundWork Foundation allow presentation layer programs to query the GroundWork Foundation database by object or data type. Separate API libraries are available for Perl, PHP and Java programs, enabling users to build their own custom user interfaces.
* Customizable Adapters: GroundWork Foundation allows for the development of adapters to integrate and normalize any type of monitoring data--whether SNMP, polled or log file data. Normalized data is stored in a common database for retrieval.
* Integration of Third Party Systems: Data from commercial monitoring systems can also be integrated into GroundWork Foundation, enabling IT staff to consolidate the best of open source and proprietary monitoring and management tools into a single application.
