bbnt2ns is a perl script that listens for messages from the Big Brother NT client.
bbnt2ns is a perl script that listens for messages from the Big Brother NT client. Then, the project takes these messages and feeds them to Netsaint as a passive service check. The Big Brother NT client also works under Windows 2000.

NEWS: bbnt2ns also works with the new version of Netsaint, called Nagios. All you have to do is change the location of the external command file in the script. Set it to point to the nagios directory, usually "/usr/local/nagios/var/rw/nagios.cmd", and the script will work fine as the nagios syntax is the same as Netsaint. A big thanks to Christoph Weinandt for testing out bbnt2ns with Nagios!

MORE NEWS: Here is an example of a nagios service definition using bbnt2ns:

define service {
host_name myhost
service_description cpu
active_checks_enabled 0
check_command ping
}

Note that the active_checks_enabled setting must be 0 to keep the check_command setting from conflicting with the passive checks done for bbnt2ns. Thanks to Clay Fandre for testing bbnt2ns with nagios and sending in this configuration example!

What's New in This Release:

ยท Fixed a bug that was causing bbnt2ns not to update the netsaint.cmd in netsaint version 0.7, as netsaint.cmd changed to a named pipe.
