This plugin adds the ability to auto-discover devices on a subnet that are not monitored by Cactihttps://trac.assembla.com/npc
This is the community site for the Nagios Plugin for Cacti (NPC).
As a long time user of Nagios and Cacti I consider both applications crucial to understanding the health of my network, servers, and services. The purpose of NPC is to be a complete web based UI replacement to Nagios while fully integrating into Cacti using the Cacti Plugin Architecture. The primary benefit is a single point of access for trending and alert monitoring.
Nagios is excellent at reliably determining the status of network devices and services and Cacti is great at managing trending data via RRD's. Because Cacti has an extensible interface via the Cacti Plugin Architecture and decent user management it made sense to stick with Cacti's user interface. Both applications have tools and API's available now to make an integration project like this possible.
