A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

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.
