check_nagios_summary - distributed Nagios monitoring enabler


check_nagios_summary enables you to do perform distributed monitoring using Nagios. With this plugin, a Nagios system can check and summarize the status of other (satelite) Nagios systems.


Nagios includes NSCA which enables you to distribute check-results of satelite Nagios processes to the main Nagios instance. The con of this is that it requires you to have all services defined on the satelite host to be defined on the main host as well. This is an administration nightmare.
