nagios perodic data


We need to collect data from nagios once a week and have it sent/mailed.
What would be a good place to get it? I am thinking starting with


scan it once a week and get most recent entries from each hosts.

Any other ideas.

BTW data is being written in /var/log/messages and in mysql(ndo thing)

Hi PoleStar,

By default nagios is storing the status of each host in the status.log file
if you store the nagios data using files, check the value of the setting status_file in your nagios.cfg this should tell you where the status data are stored. (the default should be something like /usr/local/nagios/var/status.log)

I can tell you more about this tomorrow as I'll have access to our nagios server.

Anyway I hope that will help for now.

Best regards,
