Help Support Ethan

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.

- Ethan

A highly configurable, secured, low cost, external remote monitoring probe for Nagios.
The aim of this project, conducted by 5 students at IFSIC ( was to create something that doesn't seem to exist (as far as I know, to day, i.e May 2005).

Network administrators need to track down the availability of services running on various servers. Nagios monitors services very well inside its own network, but what about availability of external services as seen from outside the LAN ? Nagprobe provides a solution to this problem by allowing network administrators to manage batteries of tests on publicly accessible, external network services through the use of a light probe running on a friendly network.

Editor's Note June 26, 2009: It appears as through the files for this project cannot be located anywhere. If anyone has a copy of the Nagprobe code, please let us know!
