Distribute Hostchecks, Servicechecks and Eventhandler with Gearman. Replace distributed Nagios installations with Gearman worker for easy high availability. Host/Servicegroup affinity included.
Mod_Gearman is an easy way of distributing active Nagios checks across your network and to increase nagios scalability. Mod-Gearman can even help to reduce the load on a single nagios host, because its much smaller and more efficient in executing checks.

* Reduce load of your central nagios machine
* Make nagios scalable up to thousands of checks per second
* Easy distributed setups without configuration overhead
* Real loadbalancing across all workers
* Real failover for redundant workers
* Embedded Perl support for very fast execution of perl scripts
* Fast transport of passive check results with included tools like send_gearman and send_multi

Gearman allowed me to quickly and transparently scale out Nagios to 50k services, with very low latency, in a multi site configuration with load-balancing and I was able to keep the master as a VM. Keep up the good work! This is a great utility.

I switched from DNX to mod_gearman and it works much better and has more features.
I use it on production with 12k active service checks (and auto_reschedule_checks=1).

I would definitely recommend it.
