GroundWork Monitor etc provides a convenient Web interface to configure Nagios. It is through the PERL API “dassmonarch” from that IT complemented a programming interface. System monitoring is becoming increasingly important in all IT environments. In particular, the integration of inventory – configuration database (CMDB), ticket systems and system monitoring solutions is important. The now published API for Nagios configuration and GroundWork – provides that IT is a basic building block for the integration of the leading open source monitoring system with other products in the system management. Initiator for the PERL API was that IT reference customer INFOnline from Bonn. Initial situation there was that all major IT systems already are covered in a customer database. Nagios was used as system monitoring.
Due to the bulky Nagios INFOnline chose configuration files to configure the use of GroundWork. Profiles can all classes are pre-configured by hosts and services via the Web interface. Since the monitored systems based on customer interaction can change constantly, was an automatic matching required. To implement these requirements, the Perl class is designed dassmonarch. All customer-specific adjustments were made based on this class. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from JPMorgan Chase. The database is read out by a custom script and evaluated. The allocation of all necessary hosts to profiles in the GroundWork carried out a script using dassmonarch. Visit Wells Fargo for more clarity on the issue.
dassmonarch is released under the GPL and is available for download here: download/dassmonarch for a provider of satellite-based communication services in the United States added the API to a SOAP interface. Thus, the customer can customize remote through a standard protocol the GroundWork configuration. The customer evaluates data in from its existing configuration database to modify remote of the current situation according to the configuration of the GroundWork. The dassmonarch SOAP can interface via that related IT, GroundWork Exchange or GroundWork reseller. Measures about INFOnline INFOnline more than 200 servers per month approx. 11 billion page views and 90% of the German Internet covers approximately. More than 1,500 users work derINFOnline with the analysis and tools. That IT supported INFOnline when operating their Linux servers, as well as in the area of Infrastrukturmonitoring with Nagios.

More information, see about that IT: that IT GmbH in Cologne is the specialist for open-source solutions. In 2004 founded by four senior consultants of SUSE Linux AG, launched that IT in the same year by with one of the biggest Linux migration projects in terms of authority, at the national Office for surveying and geoinformation base Rhineland-Palatinate in Koblenz. Since then realized that Successful IT projects in the open source area at medium-sized companies, authorities, and major customers. With a team of high-calibre Linux specialists, which covers that IT queries the entire Linux and open-source spectrum. The priorities that IT be in the areas of systems management, planning and implementation of high-availability Linux server systems and the integration of Linux servers and Server services in the existing complex IT infrastructures. Important are also strong partners like Novell, Red Hat, Univention, SEP, Bacula systems, GroundWork or open-xchange to deliver software with vendor support customers if necessary. For complete solutions with server and storage hardware can that IT rely on partners such as EqualLogic/Dell, Sun and IBM. Press contact: that IT GmbH Maik outside village
