  • Hello my name is Michael Medin.I am from Stockholm, Sweden.This is my second time here in Bolzano but this time I had less problems with my flights.This year I will speak a bit about what has happened in the last year.And hopefully for the last time I am speaking about “Windows Monitoring”!If there are any questions or such just chime in.
  • Standard Disclaimer - My views (not anyone else's) - Not peer reviewed so I could be lying to you. - If you 2 billion dollar servers crash: life sucksLets simplify this a bit…
  • Sorry, this slide just keep getting longer and longer... But I have actually removed some information tis time…I am a developer and developers monitor software where as NOC monitors hardwareThe “unix” guy quit and since I know “unix” I apparently a good choice to administrate routers, firewalls and what not.Disliked BB so I devised a plan to migrate to Nagios.Best thing with Nagios was management loved SLA reporting!Once after some 30 or so installs of nsclient I went to the exchange server and:BANG! This was the birth of NSClient++.Management did not like crashing exchange servers!So we started looking at options and NRPE_NT was to hard to use for “simple” checks. Initially we went with SNMP but soon started on NSClient++ instead.
  • Briefly the agenda covers short introduction to NSClient++Then we move on to 0.3.9 and what’s new in the release.Following that is the 0.4.x version treeAnd finally we will have a QA session
  • A quick note on the terminology.The word NSClient can mean many things depending on what you are talking about
  • A quick summary of the options for monitoring Windows
  • If anyone has a Visual Studio 2005 “Team Edition” (with Itanium support) I’m very very interestedWiki means YOU write the documentation.If the docs suck, you are to blame (not me)
  • I actually payed money to come here speaking with youBut I have always been strange that wayMight seem strange that there are twice as many downloads as unique visitors, but downloads are aggregated from other sites
  • Thank you to my sponsors
  • NSClient++ is your friend!Testing: do them in that order.I know people who start in Nagios and spend the next 3 days debugging, and think NSClient++ sucks.Had they start in NSClient++ /test it would have take 5 minutes and things would not have sucked!I don’t like when things suck so......like net eye

  • This is really really cool!(And the reason we are 3 months behind schedule, it was amazingly hard to do)
  • As I said NSCP is around 40k lines of code, this is around 4 so 10% of the code and it is new!
  • There are two severities I generally use the one called severity (Based upon eventID)
  • What might be interesting is the safe operators
  • An important note is how neg works with dates
  • The filter: There can be only one!Dont forget NRPE and NSCA has payload limits so exceeding them will cause errors

  • Parsing is pretty fancy.It will try to ”do things for you”But what happened to neg?
