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 ethangalstad.me/nagios. Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

- Ethan

Apple OS X Servers run a command and control daemon on port 311 which uses XML to send and receive commands and report status.
Apple OS X Servers run a command and control daemon on port 311 which uses XML to send and receive commands and report status. This is the native protocol used by Apple's own Server Manager application and talks over HTTPS. Using this library it's possible to get status updates from a server and send commands to restart services etc.

This code can be run from Linux (theoretically any OS with Python 2.5), Mac OS X and it should run with Windows also. It can talk to server versions of Panther, Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard (Older Versions May Work But I Have No Access To Them). Snow Leopard is still in development but a development build from Feb/March has worked perfectly.
