Nagstamon Desktop Status Agent

About Nagstamon

Nagstamon is a utility that displays the status of hosts and services in OP5 Monitor in the form of a floating icon or system tray icon.

The utility also allows you to handle hosts and services that are currently experiencing issues:

  • Acknowledge.
  • Add scheduled downtime.
  • Recheck (reschedule check).
  • Go directly to the OP5 Monitor web interface for the specific host/service.

Supported Operating Systems

  • Windows
  • MacOS X

As Nagstamon is written in Python, it is very portable, making it run on many Linux distributions and other platforms that supports Python.

Download
