Help Support Ethan Galstad's New Project:

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

Nlist is a utility that will parse the nagios database files and return a list of systems based on a simple query. This is useful, for example, to run remote commands via ssh for a group of systems. It is written in perl and requires the Nagios::Config module from CPAN.
Synopsis:

nlist [-options] groupname [groupname...]|.

Options:
-t table of name, ip address, and group membership
-i list ip address only

Groupnames are matched as regular expressions. So, for example, 'nlist wireless' will work if you have a group called 'wirelessaps'.

If groupname is '.', then all hosts are listed. Multiple groups require that listed hosts be a member of all specified groups.

Running the command with no parameters will list your nagios groups.
