This program is designed to accept passive service check results
from clients that use the send_nsca utility (which is included in
this package) and pass them along to the Nagios process by using
the external command interface. The program can either be run as a
standalone daemon or as a service under inetd. If you have
libmcrypt installed on your systems, you can choose from multiple
crypto algorithms (DES, 3DES, CAST, xTEA, Twofish, LOKI97,
RJINDAEL, SERPENT, GOST, SAFER/SAFER+, etc.) for encrypting the
traffic between the client and the server. Encryption is
important in this addon, as it prevents unauthorized users from
sending bogus check results to Nagios. Read the included SECURITY
document for more information.
This package provides the send_nsca utility running on the client.
