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

A simple check/restart script to be located in /usr/local/bin/

Useful when you modify, configure, test and playing around in the cfg files of your nagios installation.

It does the "nagios -v .. check" and if errors found, it will report which cfg files and which lines.. If none found it will restart with a 5 seconds timer (in case you regret).

Here is a one-liner to do it automatically (requires inotify-tools)

while inotifywait -q -r -e modify /etc/nagios/ ; do echo "filename is changed"; nagios-reload;sleep 1;done
