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

NagTrap allows you to manage your SNMP traps (received by snmptt) in a database. A plugin is available so Nagios can check for critical traps in the database and generate an alert.

The sourceforge page and the address seem both no longer to be maintained now.

NagTrap was a great tool for pushing traps in to a MySQL database for viewing, but for larger installations, the method for querying each host from Nagios for traps in the database was hugely inefficient. I'm still using NagTrap to store traps for a short while in the database so I can view and search them easily, but I use an exec from the snmptt config to submit trap events to Nagios via the command pipeline passively as it's more efficient than querying the NagTrap database using an active service check (and will work even if something goes wrong with the database).
