SNClient+ is a secure general purpose monitoring agent designed as replacement for NRPE and NSClient++.
SNClient+ is a (drop-in for most use cases) replacement for the well-known NSClient++, which seems to be no longer maintained and has some security issues. SNClient+ was written from scratch using todays state-of-the-art technologies. The programming language used is Golang and all the test and build procedures are located at github.com.

It comes with a number of builtin Checks but also supports external scripts/plugins like NRPE.

SNClient supports the following platforms:
- Windows
- Linux
- OSX
- BSD

Many installatons of NSClient++ are facing the threat of being decommissioned because development seems to have stopped and security issues have not been fixed since several years. The new agent SNClient implements the essential features of NSClient++ with a very small code base and contemporary software techniques.
Pen test results do no longer show any issues related to TLS and outdated ciphers.
For most use cases, SNClient can replace NSClient out of the box.
Besides that, it can also replace the NRPE daemon on Linux and OSX systems with little effort.
