I think this is a good script and I've already found it very useful. Took only a few minutes to configure.

However, because the user and password are in plain text and then used in the URLs provided in the email, I believe there is a security issue. It works as expected but I didn't want to see my user and password like this:

http://nagiosadmin:MySecretPassword@172.16.0.1/nagios/cgi-bin/cmd.cgi?cmd_typ=22&cmd_mod=2&host=mywebsite.com&service=URL&btnSubmit=Commit

I tweaked it to suit my needs.

Thanks for your help!

Hi, Can you please advise on how to run this on Ubuntu? When I run it as documented I get no result. This is also after confirming the location of awk is not in /bin/awk but in /usr/bin/awk (which was updated in the script).

It seems that the version of nagios I have also has a status.dat file, with no status.log file. Maybe I'm missing something here, but it seems different when installed on Ubuntu (or Debian).
